As They Boiled the Cows Adjective

Death foams cups

Father knew.

Olympus pink she shapes –
your reproductive mysteries
resemble midnight onanism.

Satiety askance, Libra when.
That hence seconds bossa nova.
Wisdom deflates choreography cineaste.

Nemea shepherds sun.
Centaur Broadway
desired another ghost market.
The older one’s fled earth –
Gaia poet
Gemini of slink.

Sinsemilla mints, stinky halandook,
Squint 5 abandon fiascos.

Themis dimensionless
Jupiter vermell the splintered bull,
borrowed separation
from the birds’ gel,
crab and spirituality,
three, two, one, Siamese illusions.

Ghoulish equinox manifestos splay
Apparitions discriminate, the hippos’ synthesis after.

A reply Aries:

Laws monthly menstruate;
a cow’s period is an adjective.
The opinion modernist killed Virgo.
Environments invite the scale.

Vermillion flowing domicile –
clocks tumult, anecdote silvers.

Fountain Taurus
tells waters ambition.
Boiled delicious gods –
As they tube through shame mixes,
the quiet man turns fragmented.

Steadiness sign’s
Capricorns pose like prostitutes.
Giant winks ruler ship
of cerebral fruit brains.

Immortal canino –
the goddess fro –
the satyrs mole –

Leo spite, parachute tea –
Cretans woodchip you,
summer swap,
Sagittarius rubs off the #23.

White bees
elementary machine,
intuition nymph’s,
Sumerian autonomy –
harass the Lazarus Scorpio.

Bastards and protesters
live inside the shimmer quell.
Hospital clowns & circus fiends –
Knock before king Pisces
depicts five wishing guillotines.

Perseverance sublimes
I’m post-Aquarian (a bit of sedatives).

Technology peer pressure.

Picasso allergies
penetrate persuasive air,
pomegranate rash –
Sleep curiosity wasn’t meant
to taste Voltaire’s mall.

Practical adults
and useless speculation,
Mr. Thief
shampoos the T.V.
static screen, what channel is this reality?

  1. One has to be very well-read in order to decipher your lines of poetry, CZ1: the Zodiac, mythology, artwork and artists, the menstrual cycle, cultural media, and so forth…a mix bag of delights to drive the senses into a state of shock while giving the mind quite a bit of cud to chew and re-chew.

    1. Thank you sir. 🙂

      According to the Tropical system of astrology, the Sun enters the sign of Aries when it reaches the northern vernal equinox, which occurs around March 21.

      Aries has been getting a lot of energy building up to something cosmic.

  2. fellow dude, dear shaman…i just love have no idea, you must feel fulfilled and happy with this creation (i know, i would)it stands near the top of my list of all your poems ! fuck yeah!

  3. “What channel is this reality?”
    This is amazing my friend. I absolutely love that you use the astrological signs and so much symbolism. This little crab is always wowed by your Aquarian brilliance. Cheers!

    1. Thank you.

      I had a big feeling that you would like this poem. Especially because it has its signs of the Zodiac and its people who connect well with the astrology of things.

      It was important for me to have captured this poem very well and carefully envisioned.

  4. WeLL.. Gemini

    middle of twins

      In-between two twin pillars
      stand facing Doctor mighty symbolic numbers.

  5. What a delightful treat to bump into a C.Zero link at dVerse! Man, 63 comments in one day, albeit half are your responses; still your site is a happening, cosmic, philosophic, & other wise. Good poetry is like cinema; especially my 53 episodes of Cinemagenics–BLACKTHORNE. I am a twin, cut & dry Gemini; earthy intellectual. Your flarf really flipped my shit; especially lines like /centaur Broadway/desired another ghost market/the older ones fled earth/ & /boiled delicious gods/ &
    /Picasso allergies/penetrate persuasive air; mind-fuck city, young sir; love it.

    1. Thank you Glenn.

      Good to see you again my friend.

      Poetry is like Cinema – we all want to escape and feel the images that our flowing in our vessels.
      We all want to be inspired, learn, and bring hope to mankind.

      This poem was never meant to be a Flarf…its just a cut up poem for experimental challenges. 🙂

  6. Lazarus Scorpio,..sensual Phoenix. I’ve been reborn so many times in this life. Put the stuff in the shaker, shake well, pour out…new life. I just so enjoyed these lines:
    Hospital clowns & circus fiends –
    Knock before king Pisces

    Excellent read. Quite a vision of Earth 2.5 an the cosmos and we ants who dwell therein.

  7. Your poems are always interesting Charlie. I read that you used the cut up idea, and I must say that it worked for this piece very well. The signs are all happy now that they got some TLC from you (although, in my rebellious thoughts, I do not agree that I am as easy to predict as these signs want me to be. Forever a woman of my own 🙂 )

  8. The constellations splintered, eject comets full of Caesars’ language, showers poetry through the snowed veils of Janus – facing two ways – one blue haired, the other purple with prose who gets rejected – all hail the erections of the cross. Well said sir.

  9. Wow. The video you posted above about Bowie using ‘cut ups’ to create lyrics – very cool. I’ll have to try this. Also “cerebral fruit brains” is making me hungry.
