rising above the fray

i read indulgence mid scripted words

breaking all the rules and then some,

what be greater than gutting & swallowing

uttermost concentration of language

critically consummated or otherwise,

communing within written ideologies

something profoundly reverent or

perhaps deliberate liberating nonsense,

nonetheless commonsensical compunction to 

the discerning foresightedness of poets

& enduring escape artists 'tween psyche's

hallucinations & declarations

about analytically anomalous analgesics

and mellisonant melancholy metonymy,

rising above the fray of brutally alliterated

annotations fragmenting & fracturing dimensions,

steel blades sharpening anthologies' imperfect isms

inferring resoluteness 'tween deductive reasoning,

willing exposure imparting quintessential bollocks

literally grasping mercilessly melded metaphors

courageous enough to virtually be aptly bled,

plunged  beneath swords' inky touchstones

A real LSD (Love Sacred Dialogue) trip you took us on, Paloma. Very creative, though I needed my deepest mental focus to rise above the fray and embrace the concept. Ty for the mental exercise. You are one unique person, I'll give you that all day every day. Oh btw, I added a little sumptin, sumptin to my poem, "Seen This Movie Before." Hope you like it whenever you get a chance to visit my page. Love you always, my dear. RW

It seems you write well in a semi conscious state.

And we swirl in a whirlpool of thoughts and phrases, catching short glimpses as they rotate past awaiting us to consume it all in on big swallow. Poetry is a gathering of bit and pieces from here and there and perhaps someplace far beyond reasoning, though in the end the meaning is always closest to the poet and those they choose to share with. Imaginatively creative Paloma.

Paloma, I'm going to have to read it a few more times. I still haven't figured out if it's "deliberate liberating nonsense" or "something profoundly reverent". Speaking of "mercilessly melded metaphors," I think I may have just read one! Seriously, well done. I love a little twisted humor.

Probably a little bit of both, I like to mix it up just to confuse you Daniel. :) Thanks for sticking it out, albeit twisted!
