Look Into My Eyes

dissolute neo transgressive
a fantasy lauded libertine
self mythologizer
writing ugly comments
on corrosive voids like black outs

broken verses sounded out
in mangled staccato
needing rearranged horizons
like olives without pimentos
and skies cobbled from
thatched metal bones
moonless poems with no dream life

words repeated

no naked glimpses
no clawing
not even a drop of blood to whiff
and already cauterized
anemic-scapes of thorn-less rosettes
emptied of black tongued gimps
and tattooed whores
no Lilliputians
swimming in marsh swamps
and no snarling brays

there are mouths to fill
with pounding gristle
and ears to bleed
like pull apart flake strudel
that squeals rapturously
shedding seas
of gagging exorcisms

widen your thighs
look into my eyes

a couple of your similes intrigued me

like olives without pimentos
and skies cobbled from
thatched metal bones


/like pull apart flake strudel/
that squeals rapturously
shedding seas
of gagging exorcisms

I cannot easily get my mind around them, but they do cause me to stop and think. Your word use has musical quality that is pleasing. I could not paraphrase the poem but believe I feel its direction at a non-conscious level.


The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight

Thank you.... Part of it is exactly like you describe ...A poem can suggest; it can be a bit ambiguous and yeah language through metaphor and inference can entrance
I'm delighted that you experienced that...Very appreciated!

I would drop the first stanza. The second is such a better, inviting stance.
try it. wdyt?

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance
