Re: Countdown to Nothing

Hmm...

Well no one ever commented on this poem of mine with its meter decreasing as it is... I always liked that about it.

Anyway, that poem was actually one of three entire poems I wrote that were all inspired by the aforementioned (in the first post) night of tripping mushrooms.

This is part 2. I don't know if it will post correctly to this forum (there is a certain way it is meant to look.) At least I know part three will never be posted in this forum because the formatting just wouldn't look right at all. I'll have to attach the MS Word document if anyone is to read it so you can see the proper format.

Comments and criticisms welcome...
And, of course, I'm still open to criticism on Part 1.

Reawakening of Reason

My eyes twitched

The real world was back

Citronella burned out

Mosquitos bit me

The corpse resurrected

And there were green trees again

And a war on an ideology

Ah! The perpetual stalemate!

Humanity was never at peace

Our hearts have always been enraged

And the doom? My imagination?
The bombs were real.


The bony fingers – dead tree branches

The black sky? It was nighttime

Nature wasn’t dead – just sleeping (hear the birds?)

The rivers weren’t dry

And those crazed religious zealots!

There they are – bombing abortion clinics

Inviting Armageddon

For a

God
(that)
Doesn’t
(want)
(to)
Exist
