he fled those vicissitudes

and hid in the parables

that spread like marmalade

over his life,

as an intrinsic alchemist

transforming the jewels

that drew light into her eyes

nymphlike was not always,

she kissed his lyre

and lingered on the notes

crouched mouth to mouth

the dust of longness

passed between them

hands often released

and time again became frail

his tremors sounded as trumpets

with impossible sobbing

a deep reconciliation

a finger of saffron stained

the tongue

and wafted in embrace

yet he could no more

and neither she

amazed at speech carnivals

that wound words over

rolling track

pirouetting horses dance

to an inconvenient truth,

he listened to the stars

and read long passages

delirious now that it was


tomorrow became perpetual

sinuous flow

    Lovely write with a dream-like quality which really appeals to me.

  3. I love how the words flow like animals running free in this poetry.

  4. There are some wonderful word choices in this and together it creates a surrealistic scene. It would be fun to create a wordle from it.

    ha. fun with words…love…
    pirouetting horses dance

    to an inconvenient truth,
    think i will go listen to the stars now

    This has a very interesting free association feel – I like how it moves and the images are well crafted.
