A Crumbled Stanza

It is here.

It is now.

It is
Because

These tantric dialects
Come
Undone

I taste the solstice of gray.

Foggy, silver-lined showers
Replenishment against elasticity's incomplete verb

Through whistling meadows of Nature’s morn
Incredulous smiles become born
Again

The muse in my a-muse-ment
Becomes paraphrased, violet-tinted charm

This unadulterated verbiage
Preparing moistened breaths
Into crux of night

Surrendering chain-link grips of consonants & vowels
Releasing her Egyptian cotton tethers

Tonight

On elegant waterfall

Tonight

Her blossomed fingernails
Digging whispered trenches against my back

Will speak louder
Tonight

Than syllabic vice

    Drake....I love the line 'Incredulous smiles become born Again'...as they should when you surrender to tantric. This write is so passionate and full of sensuality! Hugs

    Captivating all the way through. Such great originality. "These tantric dialects come undone". Very seductive and sensual :)

    Thanks to Nette's question, I went back and re-read "Because." Personally, I like poems with chapters, especially those where it's my job to make the connections... Jack

    Superb!!! Loved...'these tantric dialects come undone' the pivotal point that set the stage perfectly for the rest of the poem building to its climax.

    When fingernails do that, they are not blossomed, they are fierce, like this poem. "Syllabic vice"--- that has been coined by Drake Eszes right here on Poetry Soup!
