Poems. By Christopher Barnes.
Longitude, Latitude. Endwise.
To inhale a split-second
Releases this always nearing,
Spotted on half a spume.
Tinges disbanding from glints
You too can empty yourself in it.
Bludgeoned, sunk from earths skin.
Grinding kits express it shatter-proof
But dazzlements flown.
De Beers grumble at lost sheen.
Diamantaries wink for light-grasp, glitz.
Crystal scaffolding no longer sparks.
Ferreted out of bin-spill
A diagnostic x-ray,
Face down in perished cabbage,
Risky slop Heinz beans.
Spirit-raised this after-image.
Light-touch truths as positional structures.
Gossamer in a thoracic cave.
A sweetener dangles
For its pigeon chested heirship
Distinguished hiatus hernia,
In the sepia of ages.
Firm-set atomic figurings, temperamental
As particle accelerators.
I boodle plutonium,
A drop-in-the-bucket offset
To be thimblerigged
Coursing for a boom.
The Unexpected Find
A backswept alley eye-opener
Roll up roll up to this pleasure-round attraction.
They tout tuck, ding-dong fights, wild oats music
Customer-snatching freak shows
In diamond-studded light.
Uncork a grumbling metropolitan purlieu
Ping-clink coin-heavy arcades.
And all your awe will be gravity-flung.
