Does This Wish Remind You Of Crumbs?


Pudding gonads
acatalectic crumbs.

The triune snail

tertiary wish,
foolish who remind.

    1. Thank you, Bojana.

      The title reflects of what I was going through when I was away from WordPress.

      I had a lot to experiment with the whole structure of the poem. It could come off as angry or there’s more to the layers that one would expect.

                1. Like another artist, filmmaker, or writer – there needs to be a bit of mystery behind one’s work. Often times, the reader finds themselves gripped in the pool of the author’s ocean of consciousness. It’s amazing how our minds can paint such a canvas that inspires people’s imagination.

  1. For me it had a funny note — especially in poultry ecstaxiety, fierce tooth and luscious akimbo plot. They made me laugh. My favorite line: The ridiculous device wish – combined snail & skeuomorph into threnody impassive pudding.

    I think this is one of your best!

    1. When I throw this poem into the cut up machine – I didn’t know what was to come out the other end.

      It does have a funny humor to it, and I decided to make it flow as best as I could for the reader to make sense out of it.

      I’m so glad you found this poem enjoyable and funny. 🙂

  2. Poultry ecstaxiety – ginger jello acatalectic consequence –
crumbs triune soul – thief tars the foolish confined.
    I love this wordplay , plays and teases my brain.
    I love your brain teasers of poems , this one got my goat.
    Ah! Let me read this again
    You don’t go away again!

    1. Many obstacles to zig-zag around the meaning or so.
      Generally speaking – wordplay itself creates a dynamic feel
      for language to present itself on the readers knowledge.

      It has a taste teaser for more flavors digest. 🙂

      1. The earth’s biosphere itself was once much richer, to the scale of eighty percent, at a guess,
        if not much higher. I’m looking back to looking forwards to a future restoration 😎

  3. This is a fab ginger owl in my tummy!!
    It does appear that you fell off my WP…. somehow. I am re- following many at this point. Not sure why this happens, but it does. Sensing love, and I will try to catch up!

  4. ………………Charlie,

    when I read this poem I completely forgot that we live 5 blocks
    from one another and have been friends since grade school
    there are no hints of your splendid physique or broad shoulders
    readers are probably unaware of your jet black eyes
    somehow I wish your poetry flirted with orchards of fruit trees
    or painted a picture of you with a hoe in the vegetable garden
    I remember the young Charlie hidden in a jungle of pole beans
    you’ve gone Rammstein not Frost

    1. …………………….Michael,

      Live block jungle
      from fruit hints painted –
      and Broadways unaware.

      A 5 wish splendid vegetable
      of Orchards
      & black jet plums
      hidden at the back of friends.

      Remember, since beans
      are barely starting to read –
      frost voluptuous coconuts,
      have flirted
      with rammstein’s physique.

      I pear a poem that forgot
      about its eye shoulders
      & garden poles
      that distract apple poetry trees,
      well isn’t that interesting.
