Imagine Everything Is Backwards

I just want to be

With the night.

 

Quietly write.

 

Just float in space,

And feel misplaced.

 

Weightlessly fly.

 

Gather letters and words,

Sounds that taste like rain.

 

Voicelessly sing.

 

Carefully calculate

Senselessness.

 

Condense the expansion.

 

Melt it into an ice cube

And swallow it whole.

 

Shut in the out.

 

Turn on the dark,

Greet each subtle whimsy,

As I dangle from the edge

Of a crescent moon.

 

...and swoon

 

I want to be with the night.

Alright?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments:

Aah, the night

 

Night – that time when the soup clarifies and you can pick out the bones.

Still alive I am

Still alive I am
With bread,butter,jam
With my frail frame
Can‘t work in a farm

"If I had a world of my own

Everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" -- Alice

It makes me smile

It has always made me smile to share the love of words with one who has helped my growth in poetic verse. Postpoems....eternally yours in prose from the wings of angels' thoughts unthought. Thank you Stella, for sharing so much of you.
