– in lieu of –

Words
fail
to
birth
themselves
whole,
just
punctuated
unintelligible
air
escapes
the
broken
mechanism
of
their
aborted
generation.

  1. I love this absolutely incredible I just want to hug you for being so brilliant! Thank you so much for the nomination, I can’t express how much it means that a poet I admire would vote for me

  2. Hey — you were awake in the middle of the night composing some very deep and interesting thoughts, and I was awake trying hard to think of something positive about the world and my life to lull me back to sleep. Yours worked–mine did not. See you soon.

    1. Thank you. Yes, pain and joy. The pain that comes from incomplete expression. Words disappear into mist before they reach the right person, or are only half understood, and yet a joy springs up in having gotten them out from under the skin of raw fingertips and the crease of rough lips.

    1. Thank you. It is just that. But an incomplete one it must be, always short-falling or overreaching or with an inquisitive glance, changing the position and speed of electrons.

  3. An interesting piece, the use of single word lines gives me a myriad of different ways of reading them, leading to a myriad of different interpritations. Great read.
