Collage Souls Thump Print the Androgynous Camel

Star potion!
Magnum opus regorge!
A.I. souls

Apotropaic sac!
preordained print.

held me

androgynous camel.

Psychalgia head
I am a risk
I am consequential.

Thump toothy emaciated!

Decoupage catatonic!
wet glee.

    1. Thank you, Basilike.

      Throw everything I got into this poem.
      It is a spiritual esoteric message.
      A dream that cut itself apart and re-assembled itself into something beautiful that no one on earth is ready to accept. Only us the outsiders are open-minded to acceptance.

    1. Back in the day, most people would consider one person to be weird or think outside the box.

      One must never be afraid of what others think or disagree to one’s beliefs.

      Just say what’s on the mind, whether it be political, strange, or really far off the walls and us wondering ‘what the hell did I just read’. 🙂

  1. Charlie,

    if this poem was written on a grain of rice
    it would be so much more valuable

    this poem could sleep unprotected in a den of poets
    and never be awakened by plagiarism

    I hear you crying out for sympathy
    in a dismal and heartless void

    somehow you stumble through each day
    the mighty explorer in the underbrush

    (+) I went to Costco and have a giant box of bandages for you

    1. The day of poetry would awaken /
      sadness with Costco /

      And if the rice has turned out
      into the rocks /

      And when you see a mighty one!
      Thanos treacherous!

      If you stumble
      who explains
      you hit the site of the show.

      There is a challenging box
      who needs to be written /
      one day.

      You hear Void (+) no preventative loss.

      Did you sing a lot of sleep?
      Or worth it when the clouds shouted?

    1. To sum up the ‘Cut Up Technique’ here you go:

      Cut-up technique

      The cut-up and the closely associated fold-in are the two main techniques:

      Cut-up is performed by taking a finished and fully linear text and cutting it in pieces with a few or single words on each piece. The resulting pieces are then rearranged into a new text, such as in poems by Tristan Tzara as described in his short text, TO MAKE A DADAIST POEM.

      Fold-in is the technique of taking two sheets of linear text (with the same linespacing), folding each sheet in half vertically and combining with the other, then reading across the resulting page, such as in The Third Mind. It is Burroughs and Gysin’s joint development.

      How David Bowie used ‘cut ups’ to create lyrics – BBC News

      Cut-Ups William S. Burroughs


      I’d like to hear what you think of this ‘Cut up Technique’ that I used on my poetry.

            1. Yes. 🙂 It’s weird but that’s how Burroughs explained it with his writings back in the days.

              The cut up somehow predicts future events. And its the way by looking within the poem itself if there’s a big clue or the obvious.

    1. Let’s just say – I have my own dictionary. These words took a long time for me to discover and find out what their meanings stood for.

      I have a bunch of words that I can use to experiment with and collage them with flow and sense. But, still maintaining the quality of weirdness. 🙂

            1. I’m an alien, and outsider, and here in L.A. no one gets my work. Everyone lives in their own bubble of nonsensical contradictions and Hollywood hipster lifestyle. It makes me vomit.

              And as for Trump? A giant pail of feces that no one in our area can stand its foul stench.

                1. hahahaha!!! Don’t say that…you are a wonderful talented person.

                  Yes, there’s a lot of them here…especially in the area I live in.
                  I’m Hispanic so yea it shows from the comment I made about Trump before.

  2. Thanks for the explanatory videos – I particularly loved the David Bowie one but had to turn the other one off as it was giving me a headache!

    Tell me, Charlie, some of these words you throw out, do you use them in regular life?

    1. You welcome. Yes, the Bowie video makes a lot more sense. And the other Video with Burroughs,
      he explains it much more clear and how he used the ‘Cut up Technique’.

      Now, to answer your question: No.

      I just love to create my own world in a puzzled place of building imagery and assembling collages.

  3. the beauty in surrealism, much like Coelho would mutter in his sleep, there is a beauty in a wound, even one so obvious it blinds the seeker of mathematical truth. such delicious words Charlie, my coffee is now sweetened by your wonderful imagery.

  4. yoga lips, toothy sleep and Schrödinger’s cat! I’m in heaven here Charlie! I’m glad you have met Bojana, she’s a wonderful writer and a dear friend. Please do look up her two recommendations. Well worth your time! Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day! 😊

  5. You weave it on a loom, chop it up with scissors, throw the pieces on a canvas of glue and varnish it.

    I wrote this comment, then remembered to watch the clips, which are very interesting.
    The cut up technique is very neat, and you have taken it to another place with your intense vocabulary. Well done, Charlie! Unique comes to mind.

    1. Thank you, Resa.

      Those 2 video clips to help anyone who wants to try or understand what ‘The Cut Up Technique’ means.

      What Burroughs & Bowie did with their cut ups we’re from their time and it was very influential. What I’m trying to achieve is a higher level with the cut up in words that need to breath on paper and need to breath with the readers themselves who want to understand this new and excited world of cut ups/visual and mixed them altogether and create a delicious dish of good appetite flavor. 🙂

  6. Like others, i love to pick certain bits out of your work. ‘Peer suctorial from Surat shabd yoga lips’ sticks out for me this time. I love your surrealism. I picture a philosophy student tripping on acid.
    Thank you for pushing that envelope as always!

    1. Surrealism is part of what takes the readers imagination to a whole other level or weird and colors. Which is why writing is a tool for escapism and not being too consumed in today’s sensitive society or its chaotic political hysteria.

    1. My apologies. Yes, everything is okay.
      I’ve had a recent migraine so I needed to give work and computer a break from the screen. I feel a lot better now. And I’m getting back to everyone so I am still here. 🙂

      I shall read part 5 and I’ll be sure to go back to the other links you sent me. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Watt. So glad you have discovered my work. The 2 poems you’ve read are a method that Burroughs started;

      The Cut up Technique.

      All the poems here are cut up. And I use my own dictionary of words to re-arrange my own style of work.

      P.S I’m currently following your page now. I’ll be stopping by for a read of your work.

  7. To me this is about an anorexic person, as a matter of fact, it’s a bulimic soul. It is a mind that will only spew what it has learned in yoga class, but has no class. It’s the cat’s woem. x
