Midnight moonlight madness. Very surreal.
Non-Euclidean concepts of parallel lines,
Lewis Carroll called Euclid's line to chat,
Mathematical symbols, sorcerer's signs,
Jung's skull grinned like a Cheshire cat.
Symbolic language of the fantastic,
Cat-faced speakers butcher diction,
Harbors of dark virgin alien fantasy,
Knife-wielding poets murder fiction,
Read this poem with nebulous eyes,
Truth hidden to sway a porous mind,
Beautiful butterflies in colorful flights,
Leather and lace two hearts entwined.

|The poet, like some Grand Priest of Incas fame, takes his poetic knife to extract a still beating heart as offer to a ghoulish Bard-god.

|An interesting abstract compilation. The last line caused me some confusion in that it seemed to be a departure from the theme but I'm happy to admit this and accept that I don't need to 'understand' all that I read. Poetry is open to personal interpretation. You're obviously a very capable wordsmith and I look forward to reading more of your work.

|You have created a very dear poem with much meaning, didn't you? Now, I had to research but you have made me seek....and I am intrigued. The dark and the light, leather and lace...such a needed combination embraced. Scattered words with hidden meanings, definitions to each of them, connecting, relaying the next....important to fuse. Harbors of dark virgin alien fantasy...mysterious, pure, out of this world-dreams is what I feel from this. I do like it, Rocky. Makes me think alot and I love to go inside my head and sit there with wonder and awe! brilliant!|

|So sorry to bother you, Rockie:
Columbus in Italian is Columbo.
England's John Cabot was Italian.
My porous mind is easily swayed.
