a space over head

covers hair

wooden block shapes it

cold blocking

empty measured

scissors cut

as thoughts be trimmed



in her mouth

if not for Bansack

would not be rolled

then zippo lit

Columbus curse inhaled

taste it on her kiss

ash licks to a memory



Chieftan 6 cylinder

automatic interior lighting

vibrant in its red

the look of Harley Earl

comfort seats

full of knowledgeable


tactile so tactile



biological act


drawn by Da Vinci

exploited for love

apparent from conception

by automobile

another human form

original in cellular signature



each item traded

with intrinsic worth

hat given away

more cigarettes bought

automobile traded

for another without memory

baby given to a couple out

of state who are unable to

    Very impressive.

  2. Mama Zen says:

    Great build! This works really well.

  3. Chazinator says:

    This is very interesting how the pieces fit together by the time we read the last part. What a commentary on our tims, indeed. I think the supremely objective way you voice the pieces makes it work, and bybthe end it is like a bit of mechanical necessity that brings these things about, which of course it is not. Thoughtful and provocative.

  4. Quite clever response to the prompt as you dissect these modern aspects of reality.

  5. ManicDdaily says:

    Wonderful medley here – a round as it were, of various words phrases objects. Works really well. k.

  6. Very clever, the way you pull the strings together in the final stanza.

  7. vivinfrance says:

    Your succinct and pithy approach to poetry is very attractive. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  8. You build this well to the end punch in the gut, I agree with Brian about your approach. Very nicely done!

    i like how you switch in each stanza from the real to the surreal…from the surface to the depth..very cool

  10. brian miller says:

    nice…i like your deconstructionist approach to this and the minimalism to each segment…the baby one struck me the most…the exploited…and drawn by da vinci…both carry weight for me on the attitudes that surround them…
