polish deception until
fingers move across
air becomes alive
intoxicates deep regions
Merging hallucinations incessantly chant
. . . shackles . . . shackles . . . shackles . . .
Futiitly polishes darkness
while Earth hibernates
Inspiration for these pieces came from Big Tent Poetry's Monday prompt. Here’s an excerpt: “This week we are going to try bending, maybe even breaking & re-stitching words together. And we’ll use Big Tent Poetry’s latest resource page: Poetry Toys! For these pieces, I visited the Language is a Virus website, where I found moveable refrigerator magnets with words from famous poets.
Anais Nin’s multi-syllabic words captured my attention. Almost all of the words in the haiku are from Nin’s fridge. The last piece, she floats, has Nin’s words woven with my own. To find other poets' refrigerators, visit the electronic poetry kit at Language is a Virus. Thanks again to Big Tent (this was fun)!
