Dinosaur Porn



Several months ago, Ferno House and Emergency Response Unit Press posted a call for works based on "Dinosaur Porn." What twisted muse, what inverted poetry caused me to rise to this occasion, I don't exactly know, though the notion seemed intriguing and amusing. Here is my little submission. The idea of 'dinosaur porn' seems like it has become one of those viral Internet things. In the summer when I was brave enough to search for "dinosaur porn" on Google, there were few listings. Now, there are many. Dinosaur porn an idea whose time is come? Or vice versa.

PEARLS OF AN ANCIENT CONSTELLATION:


Stegasaurus on Tyrannosaurus on Brontosaurus
Brontosaurus on Allosaurus on Pterodactyl
Brachyosaurus on Astrodon with Velociraptor behind

what do you call a one-eyed dinosaur?
what do you call a blind dinosaur?
which dinosaur cracks the earth when it walks?

congress of the fossil hunter
fern-faced horn head
mezzanine of the Natural History museum

what dinosaur rides in the rodeo?
what dinosaur never gives up?
which dinosaur doesn't like to be remembered?

the dinosaur arrives at the door with flowers in its strangely shrunken arms
if I could speak for myself, the dinosaur says
if I could speak, it says

Triceratops: I am a plumber.
Tyrannosaurus: Fix my plumbing.
Triceratops: I will fix your plumbing
Tyrannosaurus: You are so big.
Triceratops: I get hot when I fix your plumbing.
Tyrannosaurus: You are hot, hot as the late Cretaceous.

Ankylosaurus on Archaeopteryx on Spinosaurus
Spinosaurus under Rhamphorhynchus straddling Apatosaurus
Apatosaurus with Pentaceratops over Styracocaurus

sharp-point, terrible handed, two-ridged
thick-nosed, large-crested, five-horned, star tooth
leaping foot, heavy lizard, egg thief, good mother lizard

Tyrannosaurus: Take off your bony protective plates.
Triceratops: I am taking off my bony protective plates.
Tyrannosaurus: You make me wet when you are unprotected.
Triceratops: I could go extinct now.
Tyrannosaurus: It feels like a comet across the dark sky.
Triceratops: I am going extinct. You are my king.
Tyrannosaurus: Take my crown. Take it all.
Triceratops: I take it, O Rex, your comet fills my sky with the future

double-beamed short-footed thunder lizard
dawn thief rainbox serpent
triple-toothed winged finger
O beautiful lizard!


The dinosaur at the door again:
an imprint
a suggestion
a fragment only
let’s go on a date
a date from a very long time ago
it’s what’s not there that counts

Styracocaurus on Triceratops fluting Utahraptor
Utahraptor on Albertasaurus with Brontosaurus entering Brontosaurus
Compsognathus 69ing Plesiosaurus feathering a naked Teradon

I have a brain in my pelvis
it is a walnut

I geyser my ancient sea.over the upper Jurassic
in two hundred million years you find it
warm and teeming
O yes, recreate me, land dweller
watch me
spangle your new fangled mind

I read this one as part of the 3-hour cover-text open-mic marathon. It was a huge hit. I even massacred some of these dino-names and got called on it during the reading, but it was well appreciated.

And there are those Brontosaurus deniers...no matter how you say it, it still didn't exist.

Thanks for reading the poem though. I was hoping to get invited to 'conventions' with this poem...

This is perfect because I had never heard something like this before, it's perfect because I like to learn always different things and it has been a perfect knowledge for me.
