Untitled by Phil Primeau

things don't fit together
so well

magnetism decreases

swans lift like water
but generate no electricity

come home
& put on nick drake
shower then remove the cassette

eat a bowl of cheerios
against her gravity

wait for blood
to thin bad rain

I particularly like the beginning of this poem and the swans.....

Anna Piutti said...

Simply brilliant.
I agree about the swans, and I particularly love the ending.

HI Anna, interesting how the same poem can impress people differently...

Interesting pictures painted with words, an especially vivid image of swans lifting like water...
