It’s National Poetry Month, ya’ll! What a great year for poetry thus far:
- During January’s Fantastic Ekphrastic, an ensemble from Studio@620 performed my tormented-God-of-Love poem Arc Angel.
- In February, my psycho-terror narrative poem, A Coterie of Diamonds, was accepted for publication.
- March, I joined fellow local literary writers for award-winning poet Peter Hargitai’s poetry workshop.
Every Friday this April, I am going to feature an original work here for your reading pleasure. Throw rotted fruit, sing praises, lemme know you just don’t get it, but do, please, enjoy responsibly. Practice good karma; if you borrow the work, be polite and cite!
Let’s kick off NPM15 and the one-year anniversary of debuting I Blew Up Juarez with a Von Simeon original poem. Although the book is action fiction, I had to sneak in my poetic background somewhere!
Commander Ga shares this poem about Creation with her secret husband, the accomplished scientist Jah:
Travel back to the world of mortals, little soul
as a pink sworl of smoke
In your smoke, twist to mist
from your mist, grow to clouds
feed a creature as rice, barley, herbs, sesame, or beans
Express into the divine
and become child
Be born into existence, and live
