Cloud Veins Dust Hierophant Decimal


Lip skulls capillary supermarket.
Seagull myocardium –
like camel-pontiff veins
                                   whose apoptosis cirriforms,
                                   crawling budd–chiari.

The Barmecide cloud nimbostratus;
mouth mites’ kakorrhaphiophobia
                                                            IBM petrol feather,

God inhales eggs wherever
the decimal prostrate…

                                  Mire dust background tapir.

Nomenclature tomb – the vaporous – unmacro moira,

Hierophant spells vent swaps
canorous anhedonia fiat.

– Separators… Commence…

    1. Translation to what this poem means.

      I could tell you a bit but, can’t relieve any answers to what this all means.

      Words are like characters in their own right, each of them have some place in my universe.
      When I write there’s a whole world in my dreams that I find so unusual and very strange in its dialectic of new futuristic language. I translate those meanings and I came up with this answer:

      Wait? I said I wouldn’t give out the answer so I guess its really up to the reader to decide or interpret
      on what they got from all this. hahahahaha!!!!

  1. Highly evocative – calls to mind 50’s coffee houses full of beatniks in black turtlenecks and ponchos, listening to a reader with eyes closed, snapping fingers occasionally, nodding. Cigarette smoke wreaths the room. (Pre- No Smoking era). Maybe some pot in the air. Brilliantly done!

    1. Your observation on my writing is spot on.

      My influence that made this poem is ‘William S Burroughs’ and the method
      to the ‘Cut up Technique’. Ever since reading Burroughs his work just spoke.

      Beside the ‘Cut up Words’ I use different techniques in writing to create something that can provoke
      and question the readers interpretation of our world and reality itself.

      I’m a huge fan of the beat poets. And always have been. Ginsberg was such ahead of his time. 🙂

          1. This is so thought-provoking. I was especially intrigued by the meaning growing out of apparent disorder, and the precognitive nature of some of the cutups. The first video reminded me of what I expect Kafka would have created, had he been a beat poet. Thanks so much for sharing all this!

            1. I’m so glad you enjoyed these videos.

              This cut up method is what’s been working for me in the context of writing something different but with using 2 things: ‘Words’ & ‘Visuals’.

              I agree Kafka would have done something phenomenal with the beat poets and I wish he had.

              You are welcome, Jan.

  2. back in the old days when humans still labored on the railroad
    I remember reading that if you peeled back the skullcap of a worker
    you would find troublesome words
    is that what happened to you Charlie ?
    did you have your skullcap pulled back ?
    (+) youthful innocence
    (+) youthful rebellion
    Thank God you’re not burdened by outworn codes
    for biographical purposes, you remain my “Little Loaf of Bread”

    1. Days labored by Ketchup
      and habanero sauce.
      You took purpose
      and sent it back to 1600’s

      The bread skullcap
      railroad you to the old steampunk world.
      A wound god cinemascope –
      finds the code resistance baffling
      that, which outworn the troublesome loaf.
      Peel off the biographical burdened rebellion reading,
      and just let the human words experiment on literature.

    1. Thank you.

      Words have such an effect on cinema, books, art, & literature . It has a dynamic power of how one tells a story and how the author is able to bring the reader into their world of beauty, drama, thrill, and suspense.
      That is true heart of what any writer puts on paper and shares it with the world.

    1. Thank you, Sifan.

      Many readers that have stopped by and read my works. They too, feel that my writing is out of this world.
      I’ll explain but with an enigma of some sort. Words speak like a cinematic painting. The writer is the director using the camera as a paint brush and seeing the canvas white is enough for the writer to build or reinvent something that no reader or eyes have imagined or read before. Our neurons process things quite differently without our own knowledge of it. In this particular case – words in our reality can be re-arranged in the homage of the great;
      William S Burroughs. This whole world can be a cut up of fixing reality and seeing the future of many predictions and mysteries that lie ahead.

  3. I read through your poems, and I wonder where you find such fascinating words. One of my favorite poets, William Carlos Williams, was a physician by trade, but he wrote poetry on the side, and is considered one of the greatest American poets of the 20th Century. My point for mentioning him is because, had he chosen to be more experimental in his work, he could have included all kinds of scientific and medical terms in his work, and the result would been nothing short of stunning. He passed away before either of us was born, but I feel as if part of his soul was reborn in you. Excellent work, my friend. You always create the most engaging poems. 🙂

    1. William Carlos Williams was such a great poet of his time. Thank you for the compliment.

      I try my best to invent new ways of writing poetry and specializing in words and how words themselves can be used. It’s all about visuals in the context of approaching poetry and to provoke or invoke a response to the imagery that the readers themselves are envisioning to your interpretation of the writing context.

      That’s one way of looking at it. The rest gets more interesting. 🙂

  4. Cut up–flarf–nonsense & prophesy; you are still “out there”, creating poetry that kicks ass and embraces conundrums and challenges reader. For me you combine black out verse, absurdity, science and madness (as Zorba said, “we all need a little madness”). I liked /camel-pontiff veins/ & /IBM petrol feather/.

    1. Out there where the universe meets the infinite unanswered questions about the per-cognitive vs the cosmic phenomena. Many readers become challenge in the prospects of learning and studying different view of writing.

      Glad you enjoyed the line bit. Madness is the science of magic.
