Tearing Metaphors is the Sexiest Trick in Periphery


Gazeless spittle macaw – sips bare clozaril –
Periphery tearing malice – the trick became depattern
of mitre litotes and clomp rearranging berefleetirpor.

  • Daymare antithesis…
  • Lumbosacral coccyx…

Notion the sexiest metaphor – unetonalters hyperbole catechism –
the liars outwit regicide – glocal chilling this loophole thresh.

    1. hahahahahaha!!! It’s quite alright, Sue. 🙂

      It’s really up to the reader however they want to try and interpret my work.
      If they re-read again and again, and see something different and make out what this all means then there’s progress.

      Take your time sue. This one is a thinker. 🙂

  1. Somewhere between litotes and hyperbole, this poem reigns. I like the mashup of the sexual with the religious here- the last lines make me feel that the subject is the profanity of religious power structures. The idea of tearing metaphors is a great setup for a close read of the poem. Go, CharlieZero, go!

    1. Good mashup word ‘Chronicalliope’. Yes, experimenting with words is power in and of itself with what the writer can apply with their own work and trick the reader into what universe this all means. 🙂 Really glad you enjoyed this piece of mystery.

  2. Every word that connects to make a whole line is an aphorism!
    You done it again. I must hand it to you , Charlie , I must peer into that brain of yours to see it’s functionality, it works on ambitious words of wise , delving deep into the cosmos of metaphors
    With due respect to you , I must read this once twice again to my mind’s content !
    Ah ! I take your leave to not leave your page .

  3. Charlie, I love the idea of setting my own boundaries in life. There are limitations even within the idea of limitless. It is amazing what we can achieve when we understand what we are capable of.
    SO! My computer was dying, quickly several days ago. I had to take it off-line. I bought a new computer. You are my first visit.
    I want you to know that your words/our graffiti is still not tagged. Everyone who knows that door is shocked.
    Not only is it not tagged, but people are constantly taking pics of it. It’s become a local tourist attraction. LOL!!! I have an idea. Will write you.

    1. Yes, setting one’s own boundaries in life is to push thy self further within their means of creative process. Our minds still evolve and still try to make us the human understand what lies around us and what we can do to change the conscious minds or at least re-shape reality.

      Really??? Not tagged at all??? wow!!!! So, does this mean I got to the taggers???

      You mean to tell me there are tourist and people stopping by the door and taking pictures??? OH! MY GOODNESS! I don’t know what to say. I’m not dreaming am I?
      I wonder if anyone that is taking these pictures are posting them on ‘Instagram’ I’m curious to know what they are saying about it on that world. 🙂

      Please write to me and I’d like to listen to your idea.

      1. NO TAGS …. yet!
        People love it. There’s always someone reading it or taking pics. It’s amazing, and you are not dreaming my friend.
        I feel we have started a new thing…. Street Poetry!

        1. I went onto the search engine on ‘Instagram’. I typed in #charliezero and what do you know. Below some pictures only 2 people posted the picture on their instagram to share. Yes, we have started something here. I feel it.

          Street poetry. I like the sound of that.

          What ideas do you have in mind? Please write to me on email and share. Did you get my last email I sent you? I sent you another short 15 line poem. I am writing more.

          1. Yes, I got the words!!! They will go up after my 1000th post. Awesome. It is so cool people are posting your words, and you are now a # …#Charlie Zero.
            After my 1000th post, I will post the pic of your words on Twitter with #CharlieZero and # StreetPoetry
            This is very exciting!

            1. We did it, Resa. Yay!!!! I’m currently going to talk to a friend of mine here in my neck of the woods. I told him what we did with the words on your door. He liked the idea and we’re still going to talk more and see how we can put my street poetry onto more walls here in L.A. It’s going to be difficult and tricky. It would have to be done within a legal permission by the owners themselves.

              Thank you, Resa so much. You are super awesome! Let me know when the 1000th post will be up.

              I hope the other writing I sent you will fit at your door with just those 15 words. I wrote it to make it fit…so I hope the ‘bioluminescent’ word can fit.

              1. YAY!!! Well, that black door is on my property and I am 1/2 owner of it. We can do what we want with it!
                I’ll make ‘bioluminescent’ fit…. and it should be in its own color.
                Charlie, when your words catch on, people will ask you to use their door!
                It is Canadian Thanksgiving, and I have to go cook. I will write you very soon! Much love & we started the Street Poetry movement!!!

    1. Thank you, my friend.

      Every work I post, I make sure its sounds different in tone, vocabulary pronunciations, and visuals. I try to give all readers a chance to read something different or that’s never been heard envisioned, or heard of before. Poetry is like film the editing process creates the magic of a cinematic universe. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Nat.

      This took me a awhile to get the right vision and what I was feeling at that time.

      I thought of vortexes and otherworldly places that I’ve never been too. A culture of people expressing a way of speaking. Plus, I have fun experimenting with words and imagery.
