Punk Run

: all about the god flesh
	a dark piece of 
matter and the 
impression of a 

beyond the apparitions of 
shattered ceilings and 
	paper planes
(the cool wealth is rearranged) 
chiseled apparatus of
our childhood 
dreams, the vogue of 

it’s a secret authentic as 
	bone marrow
for the TV gods 
and the YouTube stars
yesterday’s restless minds
one fake, one small

the sweet flick of a 
cherry and a mouthful of 
desires that pop like 
sacred percussion that 
flows like silver through 
our bloodstreams

the groove: tempest blue
a nocturnal bridge between 
moments of enlightenment
	cannibal spirit
	undisturbed hands 
the last bloodless figures in a 
	pop culture romance

  1. The way you write poetry reminds me of Ezra Pound’s Cantos a bit. It’s fun to let go control and let the word generator do its thing. The best poetry is done unintentionally, imo. It makes great modern art. Btw I just found my copy of Cummings in my boxes of stuff. Big thousand page tome. Cheers to the new year!

    • Thank you very much! I agree it is great fun to let go and allow the words to come together on their own. That’s when writing feels a lot like playing. Enjoy the Cummings volume. He always makes me yearn to do something wildly experimental, almost transcendent. Cheers to you and Happy New Year! 🥂

  2. Another direction indeed! 🙂 I like it very much. The image is also quite the perfect blend for the words within. Wrapping up some loose ends here, and then onto some more of my raveled roads. Back soon. T

    • Thank you! There is something brewing in my imagination and, I think, maybe has been for awhile…I have just begun my first steampunk novel and find myself completely sucked in. K. W. Jeter is the author. Terrific writing and fantastically entertaining. Will let you know where it all leads. Talk soon. And thanks for stopping by. 🙂 L
