Poetry: a NON-Verbal Translation

Poetry in the mead-hall after feasting was Beowulf accompanied by familiar pop melodies which to-day are repeated via transmission through the electromagnetic spectrum. The progression from verbal throat swells, held to Anglo-Saxon interpretation, assessed in real-time was void of phenomenal proclamation. Philosophers of yore instead deemed this the Word of God (or Gods), held toContinue reading “Poetry: a NON-Verbal Translation”

To BBQ a Comedian

A better equivalency which balances the asterisk fallen from order, removes white grease and splits the crease dividing the comedian’s smile along paranoia and muted apprehensions. Brittle spaces invite angry descriptions, test foundations carrying thousands of options to relish the weight of forevermore. Selling hot irons required PR research like never before. Translation of electricity eliminates the wrinklesContinue reading “To BBQ a Comedian”

Exposing the Innards of the Hollow Earth

Decay placement contends with triangular aesthetics this balance invites singular expressions to explain away the nose dive to reach peculiar wafts spreading about the musty essence deep inside the Hollow Earth. A  hand drops its grasp on a handful of metallic screws, performs Tai-Chi movements and perfumes the tendrils of inky suspensions, drawn by paintedContinue reading “Exposing the Innards of the Hollow Earth”

Conscripted Belligerence

Conscripted belligerence  Soft  Pillows welcome  Comfortable defiance. Homeward. Appendage in tepid bath water. Soothes the iron out  Of flames shimmering from rags wetted in gasoline. FLAMES. Lick  Up from bath water, accosting waves teetering like the American opinion  On diplomacy. Postage is lyrical. Postage is assumptive. Coming forth, text is trained  By the mind decipheringContinue reading “Conscripted Belligerence”

Waterfall Like Punctuation

Toenail tips at the edge of the cliff, downward spiral to welcome death as destiny and evolution compete for action. He waves to spectators organized around the plunge pool. Waterfall spits droplets and decorates his khakis with bland polka-dots, the moisture of which saturates his leg hairs like a cold shower and prompts Goose-Pimples toContinue reading “Waterfall Like Punctuation”

If the Poets Fail to Wake Up…Has the New Day Even Begun?

“You must become an ignorant man again And see the sun again with an ignorant eye And see it clearly in the idea of it.” -Wallace Stevens Fingers more attuned to nubs than actual lanky digits, hands asleep and tingling forever to indicate the pleasurable slumber designed for potential prey trapped inside spiderwebs, held toContinue reading “If the Poets Fail to Wake Up…Has the New Day Even Begun?”

To Blow Up Morality in the Name of Progress

Grasshopper mice stand in opposition to standard morality in order to survive the desert plains the species considers home, in effect: males consume their brethren’s brain and howl at the moon in celebration of declared territory.  Because of this, Oppenheimer chose New Mexico to detonate the first atomic bomb, insisting the grasshopper mice would liveContinue reading “To Blow Up Morality in the Name of Progress”

Dust Cycles and the Imprisoned Jester

Levels of confinement, housed inside pine wood frames painted twice over exposing expressions censored from group think, to complicate the norms elicited to down and out investments, sold like white bread to homeowners covering their mouths before a yawn, when told about doorbells outfitted with cameras functioning as paparazzi, but instead of capturing celebrities eatingContinue reading “Dust Cycles and the Imprisoned Jester”

The Anarchist’s Guide to Sitcoms

Anarchists acknowledge youngins holding the door open for elderly citizens as a showcase of goodness symptomatic of human nature. But sitcoms never die, sitcoms live forever through syndication, rotating snapshots to exemplify human character, parodies to wit: neighbor touts blubber and splashes fat inside the purview owned by the main example displaying Alpha Male essence.Continue reading “The Anarchist’s Guide to Sitcoms”
