         *after Barcode 16 By Marc Cooper  

Scan this neon gig —
a redo of strait-laced monotones, 
an upgrade for each downplayed bar. 

Jazz deepens these blues, man.
Hear riffs in chartreuse, 
the strum of tangerine, double base. 

Violet scats
to fuchsia’s vampy syncopation,
but scarlet just strings along  

that instrumental goldenrod.
Black is the key, gives the back-beat;
Kiss of gliss with a slow drag symbology. 

Eye that phonetic fusion.
Decode its boo-yah chromatic scale,
and listen to the linear 

                         turn up the lean.

    This is unreal, words are not meant to bolted together to create something strange and wonderful,..yet I feel the intellect in each word each thought was so deliberate to create a very atmospheric it....

    A cacophony of brilliance, indeed. The 'Violet scats' verse is plagiarism-worthy. You got a smile out of me with this one. Good to see you also! I'm just here being nosy... don't know when I'm returning. Don't wanna sacrifice my peace! To you and yours, remain blessed...

    What's gliss? Is it code or something?

    Hi Cyndi, I was hoping for some feedback on one of your contest rules. I left you a soup mail. Thanks Richard.
