Entry for December 29, 2008


shadowing (1)


here we are

you tiresias of hippy disco punk and rap birds

and I a former communist pythia

prophetess of mirroring insights and all sort of bubbles of this world

here we are in a blind deaf and mute babel tower

like monkeys with three brains in the stomach

you tiresias have voyaged millions of heavens underground

I pythia between deep and long tongues

both of us eroding elusive kingdoms

here we are like icebergs surviving in the house of blood

like tunnels delivering lethal injections

the light is struggling for its brightness

the dark is the power of the void

and the human being just needs oxygen to dream more

still alive we are still alive

swimming in the hangman’s eyes

having faith in the spider

being exorcists of sorrow repentance

this is what we feel what we touch what we die

caressing nerves of the afternoon and moonlight together

learning to go straight into the soul’s gap

deep inside there is the shape of a coma and a frozen wonder

there is a secret infection with a burning snake

twirl around me tiresias and I will twirl around you

changing emptiness in the whisper of a curling mind

we are in here

in the big circus with real windows and doors

where nothing and all can be healed

we are in an invisible howl

in a cave for witnessing glamour

a collapse throwing ashes of velvet

black out

the numb ones are diving in a ghost memory

the happy ones are searching for a missing birth

the metropolis is just the filthy map of a devastated clown

juggling with his fingers like fishes jumping in the air

a lost battle black out

can we survive the rainbow’s slavery?

can we go naked until the brain’s skin starts shivering?

can we say for sure that a knife is a sort of god

killing himself just for fun?

can we remember the feared paradise?

or the spicy death which is a young dog hurting another dog?

    in imagine, leonora carrington (fotografia mea preferata).
    shadowing a fost publicat in revista americana andreicodresciana „exquisite corpse”, acum vreo jumatate de an. aici, pe blog, l-am impartit in 2.
    poemul ar fi trebuit sa intre in antologia mea „crusader-woman” aparuta la black widow press, dar am renuntat la el, ca sa nu concureze celalalt poem mult mai amplu, „letter to American poets”, cu care semana putin.

  2. DeScribor Says:

    Nu cred ca ar putea poemul fi concurat, e puternic si are aceeasi forta chiar si citind versurile in ordine inversa. The „burning snake”, the „shape of a coma”, the „frozen wonder” sau the „curling mind” sunt toate niste nuclee care ofera stari noi si lanseaza spre niste zone noi, reevaluate.

  3. Mesmeea Says:

    de-scribor, esti tandru-hermeneut, ca de obicei. dar de data aceasta nu ai dreptate in totalitate. the burning snake ar putea trimite la shanti, shanti din the waste land (macar ca e si refrenul din muzica de final la matrix 3! hiha), poate ca la asa ceva m-am gindit. shape of a coma trimite chiar la coma mea publicata in 2008 (macar e made in r.c.). frozen wonder imi suna a alice notley putin. singura formula care introduce ceva nou e curling mind. da, aceasta ar putea fi zona inedita. dar pentru ce?

  4. DeScribor Says:

    Fara indoiala, iar faptul ca pot trimite la asemenea surse e cat se poate de fericit, pun pariu, de pilda, ca pe multi care vor fi/au citit, burning snake oo duce cu gandul si la strania viziune a lui Flamel, care era exact aceasta. E vorba insa si de cum se poate raporta un asemenea poem la peisajul poema(ti)c de aici, în timpul prezenČ›ei sale prin halucinanta America(nie). Cat despre curling mind, mi se pare ca zona pe care o deschide e una foarte potrivita pentru intelegerea sau abordarea celorlalte poeme si proze. Miscarile acestea spiralate ar putea fi facute chiar si cu spada-bagheta a unei PoetCrusaderWoman, la fel cum fac zanele, dar si luptatorii orientali. Ideea de rotire, de miscare helicoidala, dervisul, dansul ametitor (de la asa-zis banala hora, pana la dansuri rituale sau pasionale), pot face turnura spre un alt fel de literatura.

  5. Mesmeea Says:

    curling mind, curling mind! of, dervisa rotitoare din mine e indeajuns de incintata. cu spiralele ma inteleg bine de tot. cit despre artele martiale, as avea citeva ceva admirativ de spus, dar ma abtin. sa fie secretul meu.

  6. Alpha Dracon Says:

    Eu am comentat deja acest poem… 24 august 2008, cand era vorba de umbrire-dezumbrire…. bonne nuit!! Zic ca e pacat ca nu a fost publicat in Crusader Woman :'(.

  7. DeScribor Says:

    De acord cu secretul. Fotografia e foarte suprarealista.

  8. Mesmeea Says:

    atunci bezele suprarealiste pentru voi amindoi, amigos!
