Oppressive Expressionistic Poetry for the Sake of Art


The artist wearing her dark glasses; stole the sunlight
from the poet’s eyes by painting over the narratives in her cataract style
of cloudy depictions. As with any true altruist she believes in the selflessness
of her actions and is so elated with her art that she shares it freely.
While the poet weeps tears of ink; the artist wearing her dark glasses
thinks the poet does protest too much…and is less than impressed
with him as her reward.

    Any genre expression (boom boom) is merely expressionistic word-mangling to a poet. And it ain't poetry in my bigoted (and enigmatic) opinion. Cataracts or waterfalls be buggered - we bleed every time we write, like it or lump it. Nevertheless a fine piece with great use of imagery. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

    Ted. I am absolutely staggered that this one has been (so far) overlooked. Perhaps we need a distribution of clear glasses. It's an absolute stunner. And, kind of relaxing, despite (because of?) the sentiments. t x (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
