Eager to pull a Jack O’ Lantern from my Left Ear



the flickering
my ear.

growing bulla,

The swelling transparent witch

Obscure pantone
the eager folly
your left crust.

  1. Dear Charlie, such a lot of words which my poor brain today can not even begin to fathom, I know I should try, lol.. But I am just delighted to be back in WP again and to see that you too are on a role with your own unique style of making us think beyond words, as we enter the space of your domain..
    Something we all could learn from as we open our awareness to others ways of thinking, instead of blindly following the herd mentality of believing all we read..
    We have to dare to be different. and stand up for our beliefs and have the courage to put into practice a New way of being, Much like you have done here with your unique poetry that needs us to think outside the box..

    Sending Huge hugs your way Charlie.. Thank you for being YOU and for the heart you truly give for ‘ I see you’ my friend. and thank you for your presence and being a patient follower.. ❤ 🙂 Hugs

    1. Dear Sue,

      Thank you so much for the high compliment. My heart is beyond thankful and greatly appreciative. 🙂
      With every belief – one must stick to that belief and write it in a style
      that rings uniqueness to outside readers, a fresh idea if you will.
      Many won’t understand but that’s okay. The beauty of poetry
      is how one interprets it in their own eyes, much in the way of painting, or cinema.

      Sending hugs your way as well. Bless you always my friend.

      You make the world a better place.

            1. 🙂 Also, must share something. After these experimental poems. I might post new writings I’ve been working on…their way different from these and its more personal and 16 symbols short. Straight and to the point. Don’t know when I’ll be ready to post them…but when I do…you’ll see it.

  2. ………………..Charlie,

    was just thinking of Abe Lincoln and his famous cowlicks
    and your poetic cowlicks which cannot be combed straight
    readers trying to render your words down
    condense Charlie ? I think NOT !!!

    cochlea vomit ?
    was that from a soap opera ?
    horrendously distorted
    and then cochlea vomit
    reference: “Naked and Afraid” on television
    “I drank swamp water”
    “I ate a bug”
    cochlea vomit
    possibly it wasn’t vomit
    maybe it was a Peter North deposit

    1. Thinking poetic
      of course –Abe Lincoln
      thought to comb
      but drank straight
      from the readers’ follicle.

      Cowlicks render a bug –
      it vomit
      it spread word virus
      to soap opera.

      maybe your swamp cleverness
      might just be
      that reference north distorted
      you we’re talking about.

      Television afraid/
      they deposit famous water
      in the most horrendous cochlea type way.

  3. You are one of a kind, Charlie. I keep reading, catching snippets, dictionary open in another tab, catch another snippet… Most intriguing how your mind works.

    1. Thank you, Dale.

      I’m glad your learning and discovering new words and the approach of poetic language.

      This Wednesday my writing will shift in a 180 direction that none of my readers will see coming.
      It’s different and really sad. It’s a short poem 16 symbols. Straight and to the point.

  4. Charlie, you keep pushing new boundaries and I want to keep up !
    This cut up slice the poetic mural is stupendous. I just might have to find myself a Charlie dictionary a thesaurus and I will undo the words and make my intrinsic interpretation of this I intriguing verse.
    You are in a league of your own , Charlie but I will leave you now to enter this unique universe of words that you so coherently define for us to understand!

  5. You pulled more than a Jack-O-Lantern from your left ear, you pulled a Nretnal-O-Kcaj.
    And why not? After all, you are Orez Eilrahc.

    1. You know something? You read my mind.

      Orez Elirahc. I was going to use it as a story as something fun to play around with backward word. This is awesome that you knew about reversing my name backward. 🙂 You are wonderful.
