Orbs Of My Eyes

i will club

that baby seal

when i come to it.

with its fur removed

i will not be cold

or my pockets empty

as i drink from

a loaned glass.


i raise my club.

But it often

makes my heart fell odd
at this angle

like another fellow is inside

and my memories numb

like a job where shoelaces

knot into resilience .


a frozen cosmos—

a resonance on my ribs

as a snowflakes

form  upon

he orbs of my eyes …

Probably one of your most poignant....

The first lines...had my breath caught in my throat...what an appaulling image...and then how you go on to elaborate and expand in the scope of its embraces to metaphor a universal greed...was simply marvellous...

"i raise my club.

But it often

makes my heart fell odd"...

Yes...I like the way you bring the liminal conscious, which most, even the most heartless might detect in themselves...that little whispering voice...

Excellent statement Andrew...Nicely penned as always~
