Seven of Clubs

The first string hums poetry that eats faces.
The second shakes like rupture of lost voices.
The third string is the mind’s tattered wing,
the forth a transcript of how scorpion can sting.
The fifth string trapped in concentric circles.
The sixth string vibrates ting-a-ling
to court the ancient spirit.
The seventh string a spring
of notes that blind can touch.

and He shall stay
timid and graceful,
tightly hold the lyre and sway,
let the red waters run wild;
but drink a sip
and She is loose
to slay.

*From A Deck of Cards series

  9. A da, još nešto, ali nevezano za ovaj niti bilo koji drugi post, nešto što osećam da bi trebalo da ti kažem. Znaš li zašto te nisam ranije zapratila ovde na wordpress-u? Mislila sam da sam ti odbojna do daske. Eto. 🙂

    “The seventh string a spring
    of notes that blind can touch.”
