"books" – poem dictmutationary y'all

In autumn I leaf through them.

I brush past bushels

Of prickly consonants,

I stand willowy and

Make eyes at rotund vowels.

They litter the churches, mosques and synagogues,

Like re-arranged numbers on license plates,

Unlegislated.

=

In an automaton I lead through them.

I bust past buses

Of pricey conspiracy.

I stampede whistling and

Mend extrinsic roto-visuals.

They load the chunks, mortar and swords,

Like rear-view nudity on linocut,

Unlocked.

  1. Its really cool to see how much your writing has progressed.

    I think this is a poem that is really sensitive to its own music, perhaps in a way that the poems you first put up here can’t match. It makes me feel positive about life as a whole, in that respect.

    You are no longer looking upon an orange. It is half devoured. Next to you sits a pile of pips. Only flavour reigns, and you are king of tongue-city.

  2. !

    basically I just wanted to experiment substituting words wit others in the same area of the dictionary while keeping the form of a poem.
    I quite like both the original and elements of the messed up one but I don’t really know what to do with the material!

    anyway, thanks for liking it, you fruity mystic

  3. Yes yes, I got that. I’m no patsy to your magic, fudgey wizard of death.
