Remy - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
I never appreciated
a creole lilt
until I heard you speak.
It is slow and luxurious
like your hands as the work me over
after our first night of poker.
Aces digging into my abdomen -
you were cheating
but I cannot stay mad when,
with a telescopic staff,
you subdue me. Speaking
is amiss when your words are empty
I only sense your agile tongue.
We danced like turning pages
for hours amidst bright colors
and spectacular escapades.
The kinetics between us
are only so remarkable
against your calculating mouth.

Current Mood: amused amused
Current Music: Hmm... That's three odes to men.

I don't give a damn about you or Anna Marie, I'm casting myself in the main role here.

Re: *beam*

I don't think i understand your comment.

Your treatise on Rogue got me thinking about Gambit and how much he is everything I want to be (were I to be a super hero). He's always been cool. I freaked out that he wasn't in the movies but was really pleased when they had "LeBeau, Remy" as a registered mutant in X2.

Re: *beam*

I just meant that I wanted to be the speaker of the poem. I wasn't sure whose perspective it was written from, but I mentally claimed it because, well, I like Gambit a lot.

Yeah, Gambit set me off on my lifelong fascination with New Orleans culture and music. I love Cajun music and food. when his wife Belladonna showed up in X-Men #8 I cried for Rogue. He used to just give me shivers.

He's been woefully underused lately. I'm not fond of Claremont or Austen's treatments over the past few years. He's just appeared in the Ultimate X-men universe-- the character looks interesting but he has poodle hair. I'll keep you updated.

Re: *beam*

:) I'd have to agree with yuo on all counts. Though it was Interview with the Vampire that solidified my love of New Orleans.

I'm so going to Mardi Gras next year. I realized last week that with this job I can just go and not have to worry about anything.

Re: *beam*

I've also been using Remy LeBeau as my test case all day today. :)
