Absorption Phase

Weird Poetry


words and verbs and metaphor and simile and onomatopoeia and phrase and turns of breath and leaves and grass and raven and night and dark night and darkest night and world-ending kisses and poems that eat people and eating raw petals and lips you can taste for years and warm unholy and you you you youyouyouyoooooou and grave-adorning daisies and amorous tadpole people and moan and breathing like the tides and waves of roses that blanket memory and a soul in peril and having to debanshee and singing bodies electric and antic swallowing beds and gloomy masks and doomy edges and night-trailing garments and measuring all the grief you meet and ashen sober skies and being untranslatable and yawping with a voice like a string of coloured beads and tears and tears and tears and tears.

Absorption complete until next cycle.




***Most of the cleverest lines are either stolen or adapted from one of the poets in the photo. I take no credit other than the arrangement and shameless bastardization of their words. Not gonna lie… this one was fun to write. Felt like a warm blizzard. ***

  1. “You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” ― Franz Kafka

  2. We are constantly influenced by what we absorb from the world around us. And though the words are not unique, your rendition breathes new life into them and makes them yours. I love the stream of consciousness fell that this has. Well done!
