Shattered in scorpion illusions

Pink is black
covered in lime goo bullets.
Blue is white
touching reflections which give you imperfection.
Red is Yellow
pick your scabs, peel them off,
and eat the polymer cotton data.
Purple is Grey
Gods metallic mouth
signals the end of social transmission.
Orange is Green
tear a hole in your abdomen
and pull out the clouds organs.
Brown is Silver
lick 2 question marks in each hand;
all you’re answers will dissolve like hurricane quicksand.

    1. Thank you sophie. This poem I wrote awhile back, plus I thought it would be a good fit for a prompt that a friend of ours wrote on (dverse). Dverse is an online poetry community that come together and share their own poetry to the world.

  1. Hi Charliezero1.. my favorite part is:

    “Gods metallic mouth
    signals the end of social transmission.”

    As.. the metallic monster mouth of GOD truly is ending a period of social transmission..

    of human being…

    And can it come back..

    is the question mark for me..

    for now..:)

  2. Hey big guy, been on a hiatus? Have missed your Flarf, your immensely creative poetics, your off-center voice shaking the shit out of the status quo; this treatise on color is tumbling cool, touching on the way we perceive color, a retinal cone song; for our own filters do fuck up the reception, our own “clarity” can be color blindness for the pair of red peepers beside us; Glad to have you back.

    THOSE PEOPLE WHO WRITE LESS THAN 50 WORDS

    WITH WORDS——–???——
    NO EXPERIMENTING
    NO EXPLORING
    WORDS MIGHT REVEAL PREFERENCES
    NORMALITY OBSCURING ART
    TEMPORARY IDENTITY
    ARE YOU RECERTIFIED, CHARLIE ?
    FREUD NAMED HIS EARS:
    LEFT EAR WAS THE BATHROOM
    RIGHT EAR WAS THE BEDROOM
    LIFE WAS EVERYTHING BETWEEN
    WHICH WOULD BE EASIER TO VISUALIZE:
    FREUD GETTING A NUT

    PERIODICALLY YOU SECOND-GUESS
    YOURSELF

    THE ROAR OF THE ROAD
    THE SMELL OF CATHOLIC BLEACH
    INTENSE POETRY IN `FISHNET HOSE
    PROGRAMMED SODOMY WITHOUT THE DIRT

  6. nonmaterial thoughts defy gravity and become material
    poets and the children of poets
    break down walls that inhibit the fullness of life
    television reeks of sex and sugar
    mom and dad weigh air and water and sunshine
    immortal in all generations
    constantly taking from the divine
    clues are everywhere
    instructions for proper balance
    beautiful subatomic particles

    YOU DID YOUR BEST AT BRAILLE-FOREPLAY
    THE TASTES WERE DISTORTING, INTOLERABLE
    YOU DID WHAT A HUSBAND MUST DO

    one of the hens in your chicken coop
    reports that you
    have made deliberate use of emotional extravagance
    in your parade of words
    dare I say “poetry” ?
    the big question is:
    ARE THEY FREE OF AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL CONJECTURE ?
    after all, pink turns black in the coffin
    black being the absolute cleavage
    black and then the frying pan
    ————Charlie, please give us some healing balm
    you are not indifferent to our plight
    you are in the front seat
    going 100mph on the turnpike of despair
    as a poet, you must be hypersensitive
    the wounded look to you for comfort
    signposts fly by
    images skillfully objectifying fears
    are you naked wrapped in fears ?
    are you a baby monster with a grotesque mother ?
    the doctor at the piano bar
    said that you was a gigantic baby
    in need of his mother
    that you was unhinged
    the keyboard doctor
    said that you had been mangled
    while inside your mother
    helplessly dodging
    the pounding instrument
    months of unbearable pain
    a life of false promises
    what do they know, Charlie ?
    you made the struggle out of adolescence
    vocabulary and more vocabulary
    private techniques from the theatre
    whitewashed appearances
    mercy for others
    mercy for yourself
