22 tarots in disuse
1 red vase, dusty
all-pervasive monstrosity
of ill truisms abandoned on a chair ---
23 versions of the same lie
to them, goodbye

45 attempts at the same abuse
recreating the ideal ego
same leitmotiv, lame leitmotiv
and since the wind was up this morning
like an early song --- it took
took took them all away

how they hate to be forgotten
birthday wishes and all!
on the wind’s wings rings my laughter:
how ironic predictable and hirsute
monstrosity’s farcical face
look look look, so manifest now!

2 green glasses sticky, stacked up
reminders of a desperate embrace
whispering empty incantation
saccharine fragrance undiluted
heavy-duty grip of death

an old parrot (1) writes a few maudlin verses
to mimic a sad song sobbing for love
trapped in the cage of the afternoon
--- 2 green glasses, finally washed
freed from the grip of gluey dregs.

Well done indeed. Much depth in each line. Freed from the grip of gluey dregs...Finality prevails......Unequaled from beginning to end...

Incredible depth to this piece, Axilea. Interesting how the past shapes us and forces us to move forward. Like the sense of hope from that last line, too.

Reviewed by Charlie 6/8/2011
Oooo, I get those numbers--love those numbers. They add symetry to the whole of the poem. "took took took" and its rephrasing in "look look look" do the same; nothing I love better than a parallel bit of poetry. On a different note, there is no sadness in this poem, but a sense of finality, self-mockery, and spacious freedom. This year will be fuller than ever of the antithesis: may it be full of beginnings, of self discovery and success, and of loosing yourself in tight bonds of brotherly love. --Charlie

Reviewed by John Flanagan 6/7/2011
I'm not sure you've removed the pain entirely,
Axilea, but rather sublimated it; this is wish
in a different way, a see through the nonsense
and insincerity way; the images come together
to paint a still life: cards, absinthe glasses,
vase and that old parrot mimicing, repeating.
You stir so much in me with this poetry, thank you.
