Dali's Stopwatch: A Hearing (Final)


And we crossed the interstellar synapse
with a half-turn, our hypersonic holograms
profiled in sound. light conscious
here, after critical mass, we heard a vision

vibrating in a vortex in a concave nut.
(fate, i'm
a) centaur,
moonbell synced in feeled quantum. mined

aeons, my fourgodden city, crystal tranquility
basebeating, pulsed the askew aura of earth.
k(o meg a) n plucked, deep pitched to tropic sea,
yeaster and to morrow it shifts, radiant

fisheye spokes lifting a lightwheel wakeroar
of star-shaking schumannwavebraking shock

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Ref: 'The greatest discovery of the 21st Century will be the discovery that Man was not meant to live at the speed of light.' - Marshall McLuhan

An anomaly, this poem probes effects of the disintegration of English grammar at lightspeed conditions. In the new everywhere-all-at-once of '', spacetime connectives - conjunctions, prepositions, verb tenses, articles, pronouns - explode, collide, fuse, piggyback. Time melts.

Too, the outer, at limit, reverses, implodes to extreme inner, in a deep diving to the archetypal stratum. Reality's surreal.

The poem, beginning in personal metaphoric balance, disintegrates, collapsing into an inexorable series of collective imagistic shocks, like 21st Century Man, who lives in perpetual shock.

See my Forum post 'Brief Requiem For The English Editor' for more on this process.
