Love Poem to No-One in Particular
By Mark O'Brien


let me touch you with my words
for my hands lie limp as empty gloves
let my words stroke your hair
slide down your back
and tickle your belly
for my hands, light and free flying as bricks
ignore my wishes and stubbornly refuse to carry out my quietest desires
let my words enter your mind
bearing torches
admit them willingly into your being
so they may caress you gently
within

This movie is about the poet, Mark O'Brien, who lived most of his life in an iron lung after contracting polio at the age of 6.  It's based on an article he wrote for "The Sun" magazine  about sex and the disabled and about his experiences with a sex surrogate.
 
The article is here if you'd care to read it:
 
 
 
I laughed and cried through most of the movie.  It's the most touching, beautiful movie I've seen in a very long time.  It'll change your life...for the better. 
 
xo,
Marion

the poem becomes something else knowing more about the poet. is it always the case? most definitely in this case. (i kiss this blessed body.)

(but how i laugh at the last quote about the chicken and the egg.)
