Imagine This

Vintage Words


Do not break, I told my brain,

it is the age of eclectism and delusion.

Lies are acceptable as well, but most

needed now is a churning aesthetic.


Dig down under the fluff, the said,

the done, then go inside the definitions

taken as givens. Plow the synapes

and ingrams as if they were in Eden,

full of fresh fruits for eating

or forbidden.


Whistfully, I call it imagination,

a spoon stirring up the articulatable,

a rekindling, a remix of the old mix,

or a slanted and happier way of seeing, 

but I could be wrong.



The words will come like each letter,

one after the other, and in time a poem

will emerge from the darkest and most

invisible corner of your head.


Add humor, overlain with

candor, or the commonly known,

then the exercise is done and you

may begin.
