Beethoven down Syndrome


Post mortem Achilles heel –
slurp time from its incarceration program tribe,
Black digital wounds spark,

Modulation sweating –
Erase nostalgic,
Telekinesis your ecstasy liquid.

Quadrumana hybrids,
bathe in scanning errors.
Steampunk #6,
Beethoven challenges Mozart.
Cowboy operators exist everywhere
in the up-grade regime.

Thaumaturgy Vikings
pull out the sim-card
from my temporal lobe.


Arachnid gods
registered virtuoso
T-minus 1.


Read the alphabets backwards
close your eyes and be ready for what’s to come next.

    1. My intention towards those lines we’re by a constant state of sci-fi meets surrealism but on steroids. hahahaha!!!

      The idea of a computer tribe slurping on time is such a crazy understanding of what it all means or what kind of program one drinks.

                1. It took my understanding for many years to know what companies like Amazon, eBay, etc. To figure out if either party gets royalties 50/50. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for nether. So, my close friend recommended me ‘Paypal’ as a way to gain control of royalties and have 100% of what one makes. Hope I understood and explain it well.

                2. Yes, indeed do look into it. I had bad experience with independent publishers. I figure I can be my own distributer, promoter, and do marketing. Without the hassle of a company. Lulu independent publisher is a great place for one to make one’s own book and has opinions on whether one wants help from a company or not.

  1. I must be getting better or you were kind to me this week… I only had to look up two words!
    And I feel I understood most of this one 😉

      1. I won’t go so far as to say it comes easy and that I understand it all… but this one didn’t feel so “alien” 😉 to me…

        Usually there are way more than 2!

          1. Nah… just continue being You.
            Your readers – the ones like me – are challenged to stretch and learn. All good
            A good kind of alien, then 😉

  2. Charlie,

    you must know the reason the groom wants to breathe
    air into the lungs of his wife

    your words hint at that reason
    and then you suddenly reverse the meaning
    and I understand why wildlife run away from you

    I don’t see any grandchildren
    and your relatives crowd the psychic circle
    around you
    I say that they float around your head
    looking for traces/clues
    “Why do you slumber, Lad?”

    Thanks for the DVD of our Durango train ride
    I had forgotten that you wore that black overcoat
    day and night
    you were trying to engage the porter
    with your cut-up poetry
    He kept calling you Boss Man
    I still find humor in that
    (looking you in the eyes during private moments
    and saying, Boss Man)
    what a hoot

    1. Michael,

      That is unexpected
      of Thanos invading wakanda,
      Could it be he’s looking for the soul stone?
      Thinking reasons with why –
      A porter circle when I search /
      signs any of the non-trains.

      The poet I spoke;
      Humors you with dance
      and rodney dangerfield.
      firebrands never blush
      they only eyelash the dvd lungs
      and forget that asthma is made of aluminum foil.

      Foorjoogada then lost;

  3. I may not know what comes next
    Tho, what is last is what I expect
    Sooner than later
    Spiders’ webs will gown me, and
    I will be the best dressed, in
    Outer/inner space.
    SIM fools!
    “Years for backwards
    Alphabet the recite to
    Able been I’ve.”

    1. You got me at the end with the reverse poem. Clever of you. 🙂

      What comes next will be decided by the readers themselves (pushing creative bounds of course).
      My theory is that we’re probably born with sim cards in our temporal lobe and we humans don’t even know that all our memories and information are being stored and being shared by our advancements in technology.

    1. My next poems will shift in change part sci-fi and the other….??? Well, I’ll leave that up to you to decided. hahaha!!!

      I’m happy that I made you think and that’s what poetry should always make one feel and think about many possibilities of our imaginations and the cosmos.

  4. I think from all your posts , I like this one best because it is sci fi . That is the vastness of surrealism. You can go way beyond into the cosmic and your verse did just that for me. Taking my brain for a ride into the universe of uninhibited dreams thoughts.

    1. This poem is from my first book. I’ll be posting my sci-fi poems here. I’ll also be posting new and sci-fi experimental. I’m glad the surrealism of the cosmos has been rewarded to the science of mind-bending and time bending. You want more sci-fi poetry like this? You got it. 🙂 Trust me you’ll be blown away. 🙂

    1. I’ll share this with you. When I feel depressed or feel the dark forces trying to take over me.
      I fight them off with my intergalactic brain and create this world of sci-fi and the unusual of strangeness and bizarre. It’s my positivity to create and explore these cosmic beauty’s of what our imagination can consume and bring forth to the reader. 🙂

    1. Yes, all those in the same sentence. When I wrote this…I was tripping out or something in my brain told me to tap this kind of weird writing of sim cards and Vikings. 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed this poem of mine. 🙂 Welcome back! my friend.

    Stunning poem, Charlie.
