Typewriter 1


Such felicity to tip toe
On  thin ridge
Delivering  a premise

Such strain in the chest
To pour over a love-chest 

Heart sluggish or fast or missing 
A beat , the ancient treadmill

A woodpecker bores 
Deep into a collage
An origami of conversations

Which way you look
The only way back in the day, 
Of senescence,
Metamorphosed   since 

For a racy glide painless 
For plain or phantom rides.

    Jag, these verses seem almost like a series of haikus, wonderful, unexpected juxtpositions of words, which somehow make sense anyway. Fine job!

    I agree with the comment below, it is an amazing poem, I think I get most of the metaphors, but your images and metaphors are sooo deep and profound, even for the line "an origami of conversations" btw! x :) c
