Boots Underground

there’s an idea that
invisible people are
where we belong

in real time
the primordial magic
of wine
cannon balls
crystal ships & pirates

in history
this is the quest for paradise
the animal fury of contact
a monograph of enemies
brass elephants
& boots underground

their footprints have
been buried & their hearts
are wired for sound

strangers in combat

the future’s a calm soldier
their bayonets are
barking at the sun

    1. Hi there. I am afraid I’ve got a lot on my plate right now am not available to take on any extra projects. But if you’re looking for inspiration in the way of creating powerful metaphors, may I recommend you take a look at Anne Sexton? When she is at her best, she is an absolute genius at creating novel and impactful images with words. I continue to learn a great deal from her. Best of luck.
