Dali's Stopwatch: A Hearing (3)


on golden altars gods survey ruins
of immortal madness. under marble roof

chiselled by hands of Kronos
white porpoises over shimmering waves

in green sea, a vision of a cord
of fire, produce white horsetrail.

two hemispheres vanish in intelligent gulling
of ghostly hieroglyphics on moonscape wall.


it's time.


it's time to burn out
the berlinwall built

into our corpus callosum
before split mushroom stems

tear apart the twelve tiered tree

    Thank you Diane for your always Curiosity! I'll go 2nd. This is my 4th reference to the berlinwall in our brain on this site. The 3rd is in Sonnet 24.2nd in the notes to Chaos in Corpus Callosum, where you can find an advantage - namely, whole brain functioning (ie. sanity!) . The 1st is in my Forum message Brief Requiem for the English Editor (ie. anatomically mad) . Split mushroom stems, of course, refers to nuclear fission weaponry/technology which, were we sane, would be abolished on the spot! (Report) Reply

    There are some disadvantages in deliberately tearing down that 'berlin wall' (great metaphor!) but I don't know if there would be advantages. So you go first and tell us what you think. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
