Richard Brautigan - Discovery

The petals of the vagina unfold
like Christofer Columbus
taking off his shoes.

Is there anything more beautiful
than the bow of a ship
touching a new world?

I hope you weren't being serious. I thought your comment was funny. Shoes or sandals, who cares! Also I don't think Chris ever touched a vagina... I've heard a few historical rumors bout him.... hehe

after reading the poem i am rather affended and appalled. Your facts are incorrect as christopher columbus did not wear shoes. he wore sandles of the finest leather. You fool.
