A fair exchange

The workers of symbol & myth
labour on pixies & fine mist:
render sublimity coarse
with their hyperfocused brows.

Painting storestuff, plumped imps
adorned with overcherried cheeks, still,
in the back room lies
a bath of abominable vine.

Tentacular from bleak, unspeakable chemistries,
cerebral ministrations of thought—
shadow balm growing hale
'til a queer silver affect protrudes
through sodden protaganist-skull.

Suddenly, rabbits are not worn by felt grooves;
Men are not average
to be flitted by dwarvelvific phenomes,
demons and angels do not play
on my children's playgrounds.

Odd-distanced action resounds now and always
to be lambasted by no reductionizing coal-shoveler,
and I will not labor over a poem
that eats me for its supper
without its having read me
a bedtime story first.

I'm really glad to read poems like this again.

Tentacular from bleak, unspeakable chemistries,
cerebral ministrations of thought—

Eureka, this is classic imagery.

And this poem definitely sounds like a fair trade, well at least better than any other trade going around these days.

Enjoy your super

@d-pend,

The workers of symbol & myth
labour on pixies & fine mist:
render sublimity coarse
with their hyperfocused brows.

The very portrait of a poet.
