Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Papers and ribbon bang on the floor The onion scent of white turning into coal, Smudges of lines trail into her veins Punching QWERTY keys on a chrome machine Under a lamp light soft as the pink moon; The screech of blotted pages dangle through rollers Waiting for her eyes to speak through hands. There lay the mumbled words curling up On a teak chair like nocturnal lyrics hauling raw drafts slowly glowing Into fresh contemplation, and the melt Of coffee stains drips on edges as she Folds another ream of leaves along bars, Riddled with ticktocks of a sleepless night. Then, fresh linings of thoughts bark at the winds While her lips drench inks of cappuccino Moistened among burning stars. * Inspiration from Mary Oliver's lines:" “You can have the other words; chance, luck, coincidence, serendipity. I’ll take grace. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I’ll take it." Craig Cornish: Typewriter Contest 19 April 2013
