Streaming: The Poets Cut

 
 

our stream
we ride castaway to its current
lurching at half dead letters
trying to build a paddle
of life saving words

our efforts
unable to float in flail
the bold font of the river
deletes the siltation
of our particled allegories

our drowning
the end of the struggle
we anchor riparian
to the verbed meander
of its alluvial ataraxia


The Poets Cut

Originally published on September 4, 2012 this piece was inspired by a micro-poem written in the prior month on social media.

The longer form found its way through the metaphor meant to somewhat halt for a granular inspection. The image paired today was taken several years later in 2014 as I strolled along the city. When looking through my archives it found itself fitting to these words.
