Making This World Spin Backward

Perforated dreams rotating on a spindle
Torn by the hands of poetic vets
In hyperdrive they'll purify their hind
I'll never forget the stench on fecal thinkers
Recluse radicals, fornicator of lame scripture
Ascending to derelict saviors
Professor mold slave with bald wings
Your hunger-pain is diminishing
From eating your chicks
Poetry must change
We have to rush trenches of enemy fire
To transpire into the force making this world spin backwards

    Stirring emotion, using metaphor, alliteration very nicely - elaborate - there's a turn between lines 9 & 10 much more to say between lines 11 & 12 - things I for one would wish to know & need more clues to know 1. who are the poetic vets - do you mean 19 century formed & metered poetry? 2. are they currently in hyperdrive? [ rhyme & meter are in decline] perhaps they are constipated thinkers?

    That opening line is the bomb Keith, needless to say the parts that followed was just as good. How is the new year treating you? I am back at work this week. :) Enjoy what is left of the week

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year fam...been away for a bit. But to come back and read this is very motivational to me...I'll be catching up and reading more of your fireless pen.

    We may be our own worst enemy, Keith, but this road you suggest is certainly the way to go...great poetry...

    I feel some of these same emotions but certainly could't express them nearly as well as you have in this viscereal creation Keith. Your pen speaks loudly and profoundly!
