Life Is

Life is a lot like
a government fuck
ponderous and taxing
as unbroken blank verse
swallowing the page
and eating your eyes
blind to the random
rhyme of miracles.

For Open Link Monday at Real Toads

Each time I read your poetry, I am struck dumb again by the sheer scope of your vision. That is not something that can be learnt.

you are a courages writer with truth seeping out of your pores.

if i wrote such truth, i would probably have i.c.e. knocking at my door even though i'm a naturalized citizen.

Nothing more ponderous than 'unbroken blank verse...eating your eyes..." --self-indulgent spew, in most cases. Thanks for always being succinct, and non-governmentally spot-on.

Fireblossom said...

Oh cheer the fuck up already, MZ. Uni says so.

Ah, may we not be blind to the random rhyme of miracles.
