Taunted Pink Pharaohs


Enigma pigments
like cipher disk.

Titles capsaicin,
choruses appear
as mineral orts.

Pink streaks
of peccadillo
bend onward
cairn, re-switched.

Madonna men
pharaoh machines –
they taunt you
with empty digital famine.

A child liquid atom crow –
Hematite dunes
poetically camouflage hiss.

The knights of women
cooked chapters bitterly –
& birth clock mules.
Pity this violet 3 legacy
stands unaccused of we.

      1. You are welcome, Charlie! I really did enjoy this, couldn’t stop reading it many times.
        No complex words, my wordsmith , but why? I did enjoy googling them lol. My knowledge my enlightenment went way beyond. .
        Well then, until the next po?🙂

        1. No complex because I’m saving the best for last.
          Plus, I wanted to write something different this time around.
          Simple but still keep the readers thinking and seeing what I see.

          Next post maybe next week or the other week. 🙂

  1. It feels… hot, pepper hot… and hard.
    It feels fuschia and shiny dark, the darkest grey.
    It appears you’ve reduced the cyber world to flecks of unimportance.
    It appears things are not what they seem, especially the pretentious man or woman.
    You feel indignant, so do I.

    I really luv this poem.
    I’m not looking words up anymore, unless there are very many I don’t understand.
    I want to feel and know you, poetically, not theoretically.

    1. Your poetic observation is amazing and well analyzed.

      I do, feel indignant of this world, people, and their lack of hope for planet earth.
      It saddens me to hear, watch, & know how desperately crazy people are turning into. There are still good people in this planet of ours.

      I guess they are hiding and don’t want anything to do with people or the chaos that’s ensuing around us.

        1. Here’s a quote that will bring you a big smile. 🙂

          Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together. ~ Linda Thompson

  2. Charlie, I still contend that you have Heinlein genes… and perhaps a twist of Bradbury, a pinch of Pratchett, and a teapoon of Cummings. Or else you are your own thing altogether. Either way, it works, my friend!

    1. Hey Charley,

      Thank you so much for really enjoying this poem.

      I think I have my own voice. I’ve never heard of believe or not: “Heinlein” or Pratchett”. I will look them up and do some research. 🙂

      Hope all is well with you my friend. 🙂

      1. Amazing that you have not heard of them. I grew up on the ABCs of Science Fiction (Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke, etc.). I will continue reading and enjoying. Stay well, Charlie!

  3. So many pharaoh machines, with robotic actions.. Not sure on the theme of this one Charlie. I am never afraid to say I am unworthy of looking into your own superior mind.. 🙂
    Sending Hugs your way my friend.. Enjoy your weekend.. 🙂 good to be catching up a little with you again from my absence. xx

  4. I am relatively new to the word press poetry community and I have to say your poems are the first ones, out of the many that I have browsed in the past week, that have intrigued me. While my poems are nothing in comparison to yours, I feel obligated to share a piece of my world as you have kindly shared yours. I have chosen one that I wrote a year ago when I isolated myself from the world for two months – why? I guess my poem expresses the reason better than my literal language. I would love to hear your thoughts/criticisms on my work(: Here’s the link:

    I am also an avid philosophy lover and one thing I’ve been pondering a lot is the capacity and the limitations of language in expressing human sentiments and human thought. I think that your poems are excellent counter-arguments to the limitation of language. Do let me know what your thoughts are on this topic(:

    1. Thank you Alice. 🙂

      I will be checking out your work first thing tomorrow. I’m currently following your page.
      Hope you follow my page as well. 🙂

      You took your time to read my work? That is amazing. I am so happy. 🙂 Do you often blog much?
