Good Poem - Lorna Dee on "Cave Glass, Anatomy of a Scream" This Morning

"A new poem from my collaborative project" by Mackenzie Carignan & Scott Glassman at their blogs & at Runes Dances Colorforms speaks to me right now.

Lorna Dee Cervantes said...

OOOOOOOooooooo!!! I love "you take my breath to go." I can't help but give in to the compulsion to collaborate. The ghost of García Lorca says to do this with the title, alá one of his sonnets:

"Cave Glass, Anatomy of a Scream

you take my breath to go,
flung and baited but crisp

in blue birth. To stretch lightning,
isolate the green, bleed it

dry until he dreams jagged
faces onto you seems

like it already happened. I am glad
for your sadness, for its delirious

conflict, for the flecks
of silver that motor, that curtain,

that call from a closed room
we can never enter. The sea

is in there, boiling and still,
asking us to swallow it’s name."
Ah yes,
"I am glad
for your sadness, for its delirious

conflict. . ."

(I'd love it on a postcard)
(excuse the Will-to-Sand-Plank)
