Frank Lisa IndiRa Francesca Roger Platt Cornish Martin Poems
! ! ! ! Defining Insanity [are We Still In Same Conversation? ]
Mental gratification …. Absent indulgence
or whatever be its final christening …
too abstract to subscribe to perimeters of abstraction
or accept authority
This tinge of madness
this aberration imparts clarity, impales reason.
Does it actually stop somewhere?
Can you contain it?
……Say in the vessel of verse as vassal of verse?
Ask yourself… for the only times I felt
free from the tether of skin
was in moments when
I embraced the transcendental…
Call it weirdness if you so choose
it’s the optimal contouring
of your concaves with ...
When indigo fingers of dusk
had stretched them
over last of the coy sunbeams
Creaked a granite
Under the clumsy boots of fidelity
