And so,
a sea of flowers and mirrors,
reflecting in the fire
of a guitar.

The mirrors cut,
turning the sea
red as lava
from a Washington peak.

A voice smears itself,
pulling from the deep
red ocean stones
irreadable, disquiet --

bones of love
to finger
and display
in homemade cases.

A transfer of glue
to swollen swings,
remnants of flight
to invisible verses.

And so, we float
in purple storms,
and the ocean has turned
a new color of wombs.

OH YES...you do worship properly!
and I know I shouldn't ask, but I love the stories behind your poetry as well. I find it fascinating to see how you interpret the moments.

I envy your eyes, as well as your words.

I've been quite unsettled and a bit on edge the past few days from the sudden onset of Nirvana all over again, with the release of Nirvana's s/t "greatest hits" album, fronted with You Know You're Right. The music is still as exhilerating as it ever was, but also so mired in the syrup and sickness of Kurt's diseased mess of a mind.

Pure poetry, in other words. It makes it hard to sleep.

I envy your eyes too, man.  I haven't quite mastered the whole looking-in-two-directions-at-once trick.  

In Utero is great... I can't listen to Heart Shaped Box just once at a time, I have to put it on over and over and over...

I like your response to the album.  I've never really responded to a music album, because I always thought the lyrics would kinda flood my mind and keep me from being original.  I might however try a response, sometime, to a less lyric-based album... I have a few in mind...

I was writing an impassioned review of the album on amazon.com after someone else savaged the music. After I was done, I realized it seemed poetic. So I parsed and spliced and messed around a bit, and ended up with what you have here. I never realized before how much I write about music in Poetic Haven. Thanks for making the pattern aware to me, Parasite.
