comment to Ching-In’s Collaborative Regenerating #6 What are our non-neutral languages?

“An act of imagination is an act of self-acceptance.” –Richard Hugo, The Triggering Town (via Melissa Morrow)

Young buck, torn apart
by the cypress tree, languishing pieces
Dead Language, she stood and fought
a poem patchwork, stills, tiniest of cuts
Turtle face, he screamed
“the best phantasm I ever had!”
Mirror Mirror, neutral sits
between cracks, pauses, returns
Lucky rabbit, expanding sadness
grieving gnomes watering grass
Interruption letter, enter straightaway
clothes that reupholster chairs
Director moon, wintry conduct
orchestra sound oboe bayonet
Born-again cow, stuttering seashells
unfurling flags unraveled ocean strings
Unicorn dreams, gently place
your whorled ear into the basket
Serena Serena, head hanging
out the window, board up words
ignore all irrelevant doors
