X-ray

We Paradise-made,
where trees are dreaming
office furniture dreams,
the accountant tangles his tentacles
into the watchmakers last will,
clocking in his hours
and each cloud, like a gossip girl,
scatters its warheads and its Pulitzers –
do not stare into the night,
into the satin,
the nebulosi,
the beats
that carouse with the flame
of an old, greasy kitsch;
do not stare into the night,
it holds the flowery place
within the requiem,
it is here to devour,
to stand and with its sockets fixed
scan chagrin and trouble
laying sea-stones
half-chewed, confused,
beneath its feet –
the voices, like lace,
scratching the records,
of romance laden songs

that hiccup the most
when the tired host
discloses lack of gramophones;
between I and I
a single pair of eyes,
the game’s deaf telephone
tossed between hands
like dough:
instead of flour – snow;
instead of tears – icicles;
instead of love – chemicals
and dried dandelions
twisted into lady’s braids
and in the frames, pictures
of an indigent saint
from whose bones there wont be
any daggers made
no migratory birds,
no beads for the bracelets,
not the moon-soup of daybreak
to drip down
our hollow mouths
and the skies will not howl
its coyote red screams,
its navy blue nail polish,
its arches overladen with viscera;
whole;
but will, like an imp,
grabble between busts
of primavera,
mingle through the fingers;
you look up
and there is nothing
but holes.

it’s , lately, how it looks inside the hearts of all.

Rendgenski snimak

Mi smo napravili raj,
gde drvece sanja
snove kancelarijskog namestaja,
racunovodja
mrsi svoje pipke
u amanet casovnicara,
da unovci mu sate
i svaki oblak, kao tracara,
sasipa svoje
bojeve glave i svoje Pulicere –
ne gledaj u noc,
u saten,
u postapalice,
otkucaje
koji lumpuju
plamenom stare, umascene kicice;
ne gledaj u noc,
pred cvetno opelo
dosla je
da zdere,
da pored stoji
i netremice gleda
dok joj jad i beda
zbunjeno
pred noge polutke slazu:
glasovi im kao cipka
grebu ploce romanticnih pesama
sto stucaju najvise
kad umorni domacin
objavi nedostatak gramofona;
izmedju mene i mene
samo jedan par ociju,
gluvi telefon
prebacivan iz ruke u ruku
popust testa;
umesto brasna – sneg,
umesto suza, ledenice,
umesto ljubavi – hemija
i sasusen maslacak
uvrten u damske pletenice
i u ramovima
slike uboge svetice
od cijih se kostiju praviti nece
ni bodezi,
ni ptice selice,
ni perlice za narukvice,
ne mesecja praskozorna supa
da kaplje nam u suplja usta
i nebo nece
zavijati kao kojot svoje crvene vriske
svoj teget lak za nokte,
svoj svod
nacickan iznutricama
vec ce
kao akrep
bauljati medju bistama primavera
provllaciti se kroz prste;
pogledas gore,
a ono,
nista sem rupa

takva su nam, u poslednje vreme, svima srca.

The Red Riddle

Where was Spring when flowers fell?
hand in hand, the dream and the child
with Persephone; in Hell.

White-veined in their shells,
blooming and oozing, tenebrous and wild
Where was Spring when flowers fell?

Whisper, deeper than a rain-stuffed well
never too ripe, never too mild –
with Persephone; in Hell.

The lackadaisy Moon will never tell,
not to the star, on either side
where was Spring when flowers fell?

And blushing cheeks with daggers swell,
and whistles rendered mute abide
with Persephone; in Hell.

With heart-strings all aloof and gasping just to dwell,
in tones and hues that colour darkness ‘kind’ –
Where was Spring when flowers fell?
With Persephone; in Hell.

Shared for Open Link Night at dVerse, do take up on the reading offered at the place!

It is 2022 and as it is evident, I cannot leave the villanelle alone; and it does not leave me be either.

Suburban Witchcraft – preparing the Issue 1!

•January 31, 2022 • 6 Comments

After a long time of just thinking about it, I felt like it is the time to do it. Starting my own magazine, second time down the line, with a lot of excitement and bewilderment and I would deeply appreciate if you took a look and got involved – because after so many years, it is precisely my readers and fellow creators that have been the fuel behind my own creative ideas; and your support and involvement means the world to me.

Take care, and share, and get in touch!

Suburban Witchcraft Magazine

Greetings everyone!

With a long, long time brewing inside my mind, I feel like the time is right to finally launch this project, and with the help of you, dear readers and creators, launch it to the full extent of my heart.

As someone who already ran a magazine, as well as submitted to plenty of them, I find that the times have changed little in the sense of publishing availability and publishing, showing and sharing content with creator desires in mind. These are just some of the reasons for the creation of this magazine. I want to provide you with yet another way for both you and your creations to be out there in the world, to be seen and read, in a way that inspires others and you to keep creating and to, well, keep sharing, showing and talking about it!

The name “Suburban Witchcraft” came to me…

Just a simple piece I don’t even remember when I worked on correctly, that I thought I’d share about. I like the simplicity and possibility of thought with it – I find it dark but pleasantly soothing?

As always, do feel free to tell me what it reminds you of or what it makes you think about and I hope impending February is treating you kind.

The Inner Wilderness

Plato had amazing insight into the question of finding the unknown. "How will you go about finding that thing the nature of which is totally unknown to you?" he wondered. The deep inner space within yourself, the inner wilderness within you asks for you to explore it, and in the process discover yourself. What better way to do that than through writing? This space is a personal blog for your reading, and my writing adventure. Go through the blog that follows to, perhaps, discover something as well.
