The Alpha and the Omega

shoulder blade

cutting edge

affliction severed

limbs-glued-dearly

and guilt her sibling

her siamese sister

resist...

this is not the first time

blood burns

heads turn

voices beg to know more

and boundaries lifted

are

from their very flesh

redistributed and distorted

yet

mechanisms of survival

now call for happiness...

so they speak up

together

out of breath

wishes

desires

lilac nails

siamese blisters

the impact on their feet

see them full of hope

run away in the frozen morning veil

so real

simple dreams of chained sisterhood

not yet broken not yet

This reminds me of the tragic story of the two Iranian girls, who died after having been separated by surgery. It was in the early 1980's. It was then a matter of worldwide public interest because their case was one of the most complicated forms of the Siamese condition. I don't know whether you had them in mind but this poem very strongly evokes their memory...

Axilea,
The stream of consciousness is particularly effective here and the words and phrases bullets driving home. Very finely wrought.

It is a bonding like no other. My mother's mother (my grandmother) was a twin, my mother and my aunt were twins and my mother's twin had twins, each with a very unique, special bonding, interesting write...

Conjures up the pain of the conjoined. I'm fortunate to be a separated identical twin with a weakness in the neck where we were once close.

You remain a shining light of perception and expression on Authorsden. Your work is challenging; a light thrown back from the abstruse surfaces of the human heart.

Another excellent work worthy of much meditation and reflection. I really love your work, Axilea.

Charlie, as usual, caught the thrust of this fine poem, Axilea,
but I was swept up in your wonderful metaphors...

and guilt her sibling
her siamese sister

Reviewed by Charlie 12/2/2008
This is unlike most of your poems here, in that many of the lines are disjointed-- severed from the body of the poem-- The latter part of the poem is cohesive, pulling images from the front half and gluing them all together in a parallel piece that speaks of hope.

We go from severing to chaining, from cutting edge, to unbroken dreams-- it all comes together. I'm glad such dreams are full of hope. Sisterhood is a darned good thing. I love the repetition of "not yet" in your last line. It is hopeful and promising. --Charlie
