Pedestrian Need

Rating: 4.9
I need concrete with sharp corners
Green waves crashing onto rocks
Brisk air and salty stares

Wings on birds, cats with claws
Fast dogs and circus scares
I need clocks and border stops

To get to heaven you need these things
Playground noises and bumblebees
Honest chocolate, gold with diamond rings

A collage of seemingly unrelated items and ending with a line that gives it a truely photomontage feel. Very artsy, Tailor... well done! Brian

Vivid imagework is the main player to this intruiging work....i agree w/ declan as so far as the slam dunk close.This allowed the entire piece to remesh together, tighter & stronger & ergo allowing the work to stand in a raddiant light. Stellar work, Tailor''''''''''''''''''''fjr

Incredible write, Tailor. So much to praise, so much to contemplate. So much to wonder about. If there is such a thing as a Cubist poem, this is one. - Will
