Alexandre Nodopaka Poems

I write words and listen to
sounds from Persia.
There's a party next door
and when the exotic music stops

Я и г р а л с в а ш е й г р у д ь ю
О н и б ы л и ц в е т а м и п о д с о л н е ч н и к
О т р а ж а я в м о и х г л а з а х

Transformed into a moment
of loneliness
There was this single bud
waiting to open

Resting in a hot bath
I had an unholy vision
Of an olive tree.
Its virginal pit

I spoke to the butterfly telling her
I saw a lizard in the middle
of April at the edge of my garden

I did not pass on the other side yet.
God is not ready for me.
I am still building the nose of the puppet.
Everything is fine & dandy on my side.

This is poetry in the making,
its content is developing
forming enchanting words and allegorical silhouettes.
Quick with wit, angry as disillusioned slaps,

Is when quasi-symmetric designs
Reach two stage disjunctive testing
Upon subtracting the discrete numbers.

In the center of the Atlas Mountains
A boy of 9-and-half years
Squirms in an army cot
In the middle of a windowless room.

If you are to be Sita and I Rama
Stop doing anything related to turking
Because to continue on a dark path

Office Visit with SHERRI, MD
(What a cute gal… AND married!)

I'm glad you decided to paste art
The way you did but do not plan
To tell me how to do mine
Since I can't live through yours

I was wondering if
there ever was
another artist that lost their ear
to art

Let it be known
that in the eyes
of certain gods
everything you do

The mind's eye
paints on wasli paper

No longer blank,

I call to inform you
that I left
for another woman.

In upper corner
a cobweb
with no dead flies

If you are to be Sita and I Rama
Stop anything related to turking
Because continuing on a dark path

Butterfly kisses and teddy bear hugs
give life to a love deep and strong.
Chubby hands and arms to hold on tight

Fernand Leger watching me
Bloats my limbs
But when Salvador Dali comes

The Best Poem Of Alexandre Nodopaka

A Love Letter

I write words and listen to
sounds from Persia.
There's a party next door
and when the exotic music stops
so do my words.

They fall from pages,
shatter and split into
loose alphabet.

In effect each letter
on the ground
forms collages varied as the dresses
of the women over the fence.

Today is a special Babylonian day.
One of tying blades of grass together.
With each tie one makes a wish.
I tie one knot.
You and I.

'Stupefying Days' is an interesting poem. First two lines seem to set the tone but the latter part about dentists and dental procedures makes it a piece of beautiful poetry. Thanks.
