chameleon old school neophyte poet ............. ( a quadrille ? )


eyed you 
wound jester 
crackled blued 
side Earth show 
and afterbirth ...

tomb renewals
carved approvals 
painted rates 
caved futures 
vinyl once-d
moments 
hit upon 
between 
deep rabbit holed 
bargaining 
barter 
wobbles ...

where poem soul goes  
wandering offerings 
finding things 
mostly 
loving shadows 
coveting shiny ...

  2. Perfect. That is exactly you. :)

    These are my faves:

    "wound jester
    crackled blued"

    "carved approvals
    painted"

    "hit upon
    between"

    "deep rabbit holed ... wobbles"

    "finding things
    mostly
    loving shadows"

    So, yeah. All of it. ;)

    I really like the last verse...especially the "coveting shiny..." It made me think of crows who are sometimes attracted to shiny objects and will collect them.

  4. "mostly
    loving shadows
    coveting shiny ..." nice and mysterious...

  5. It seems fitting, you like to go into dark shadowy places and shiny things show reflections of the self...pondering...dark/light are we not all part dark and light?

  8. The frenetic jump from one image to the next reads like a Picasso, and yet defines your vision of Edward!

    All literature echoes what has gone on before. Gollum? The visual layout of your blog helped bring me there, I guess... but loving shadows and coveting shiny.... Anyway... your poem is nicely laid out, and well drawn!

  11. Oooh, well done. A good bit of darkness but then there's that crackled blue!
