subaltern in shades: anticipating summer – day 19, poem 19!

 I wasn’t sure I could pull this one out, but the madness is always there, just beneath the surface – heh. 

: )  Do enjoy. 

 

subaltern in shades:anticipating summer    —              Max Wolf Valerio

 

subaltern in shades

slant monsters

 

midget cuneiform encyclopedia

subtext

 

subaltern in shades

semiotic Cyclops entellechy

 

the direction that fear runs

sideways and over

the bridge’s

imaginary

howling

 

in two places at one time

simultaneous to an exit

 

binary lockjaw maiden

you saw my elbows off at the root

and make my knees into strings

winsome

lonesome

hell broken loose

for love –

 

when I see you

I know

we will be joined and

replace our joints

together

in the mad

laughing

summer

summer days to nights – poem 4

OK people its time for day 4 and poem 4 of NaPoWriMo!  I may try and experiment with more formal elements in the next few days, but for now it is purely my own “open field” and beat postmodern ear taking to flight.  Enjoy!

 

Summer days to nights                 by Max Wolf Valerio

 

         translucent                                  popsicle

                                  arpeggio

          

         

                      sunshine

 

                 Borealis

  

as people leave in combinations of three or four

senses are amplified

as through a shrinking field of

                                 night vision –

 

        coughs tilt toward midnight cigarettes

        red lamps                    jazz snare    —  on tympanum

 

liquid stars                    

 and rolling thunder piano bars

 

deep blue ink stains           in  this impossible summer heat  –
