In this exercise (perhaps a bit too “revolutionary” in style, but… it was fun to write!) the verb “to lie” is not used as in “to recline”, but as in “to tell an untruth”. Sometimes, our physical stance does not really correspond to what is going on within... but, in case anyone wonders... "she" is not "me"! :0)
(Illustration © by Wieslaw Rosocha)

Of the body, grammatically (in)correct


meek, she lies, like an adverb of skin.

As if the blood weren’t, more -
far more – than simply wild, a red adjective;
red, like the sea.

As if the sea wouldn’t part, a noun, for the passage
of the chosen ones, and wouldn’t close, like a pronoun
indefinite, invariable, over all the others.

As if between the wave and the pores
there weren’t, salty and prepositional, a
locution – unavoidable, like a contraction.

Like the tide, that doesn’t depend on wanting
but on the moon; the moon –

Transitive, like a verb making itself
meekly impersonal when it falls
like the night upon her;

And she falls asleep, in the red -
perchance – of a naked, wakeful adverb;
that lies wildly, dressed of skin.

Stretching parameters; requiring readers' full attention intellectually and spiritually. There is always intrigue and a sense of transcension in your work. I love these lines:

"but on the moon; the moon –
Transitive, like a verb making itself
meekly impersonal when it falls
like the night upon her;"

There is always an element of "sensing" rather than simply "reading" your work. I love that about your writing.

Wonderfully penned Alexandra, I love your poetry. Your descriptions are never common, always enlightening.

I am enjoying these literatural writings that bring language and poetry onto a path that highlights your skills as a writer. Well done.

Quite a bit of grammatical voodoo Alexandria . . . Exceptional . . . Really . . .
Reviewed by richard cederberg 9/18/2008
Exceptional Alexandra, and, well, perhaps a tad seditious to what is doled out daily as literary pabulum in this world! I was expecting the dangling participles, though, to reintegrate adjectivally to form compound tenses. Goodness! (-:
In the spirit of lightness ...

Parts of speech juxtaposed to visible body parts -- quite a concept. Beautifully done.
Love and many semantic {{{{hugs}}}},

A woman's body is like a beautiful painting. Your words describes the painting very well. Great job!!!
