clowns do magic tricks now

Or either dozens of magicians pouring out of miniature little cars, one.

-----------------

Anyone can build walls.

Finding a reason to do so is easy…
overcompensating for some other sense,
real or not, it’s the very human reaction
to an intensity that originates on the outside.
Reflecting the nature of those building blocks,
even if they exude their true material, will be
seen as an impenetrable divider between the
scenery of the soul and the eyeglasses of the on-looker.

When do those that look through those glasses
assess the effect they have on the others and the
self that they seek to perpetuate, and how

do they feel about the realms that they take
extremes to… wondering about the waters they test.
striving for connection may instill the clarity
they seek to avoid. none can convince that
reality is clear enough with silence; that which
obliterates the propensities that all emit
yearning through. Again, too often do I see the
entrails of all those words yelled through the
deep, dark canyons that communicate to themselves.

There is something very right-brain about this poem. I can definitely imagine it spoken-word over cool jazz, kind of Gil Scott Heron. Have you performed it as such?

websafe, if you're single and female, I think he'll want to marry you. :-)

Moi???

No, but I can imagine it as such... I could hear it as a Joni Mitchell ballad... (with Jaco on bass, of course)

There should be a * on the word "sanction", as it is of *bastardized meaning.

To Jackie: I can see that you really like teasing and joking!

To musick: I particularly enjoyed JUSTIFYING

YOUTH AT THE CINEMA.


It's interesting that you composed all these acrostic poems back in 1999, well before your path crossed this thread! Do you have a large cache of them stashed away? Do you have other puzzle-structured, coded pieces? It's a particular interest of mine.

"all = 2 out of 3" is an in *interesting extrapolation.

Do you have a large cache of them stashed away? Do you have other puzzle- structured, coded pieces?

Yes. Yes.
