A collaboration over too much coffee.
coffee and pen

18 December, 2004


No depth of field now. Stripped one by one,
each dimension dissolved in space,
till love reposed in a line.
Against the inky void, your photo face
collages scraps of verse I once called mine.
And somewhere beyond, your new-found sun.

i like the words very much, though if i may say so, maybe the format needs a little toying with. a little spacing out? a little break-n-join, perhaps?

Prags, thanks! Annie, this is the form I use most often, the a-b-c-b-c-a scheme. Thank you for your kind words :)

Nothing to say. Words
Are stripped of their sound
Where feelings run deep. Alphabets
Lie listless at my fingertips
The line on which love reposed
Is crooked now, weeds overgrown
On this verse collage...
All that escapes is a faint "Wow!"
