Poetry corner!

Except...wait...the internet doesn't have corners.

Hrm.

I may need to rethink this title. But, meanwhile, some writing:

Splitting Hairs With Lasers
by Christopher Walsh, 4/13/2016


Light will never be in tentacles.
Wobbling, gripping, tentacle'ing — NOT WHAT LIGHT DOES.
Sunbeams, lasers, yes: they're made of light. Literally.
Anything that grows: made of light, metaphorically.
...so maybe light IS in tentacles.

Death By Cynicism, 4/13-4/14/2016

Scenic cynics seek
Serpentine second-guessing:
"You'll always be wrong."

Au Naturel, 4/13/2016

Moss on your eyebrows, rain on your shoes
Weeds rooted on coat, truly coat-ing your coat —
Bugs dally 'mongst hairs on your legs, arms and head
And find nourishment (lots!) from your fallen skin motes
You sound rumble-stomach'd, but in fact it's the noise
From the myriad swarmers using you as their boat
— You give them comfort, and they give you warmth
So thank you for all of that life that you tote.

- dedicated to all the life forms (microscopic, but still) which live thanks to you
