A Poets Electrified Paper

By Strataic

We synthesized tomorrow; -since.


Enzymes bore more than-
Colour to bone; --though.

It wasn't the sound
Of nothing that betrayed-
Marble-ebbing-into-waves.

A lisp could quaver,
Sight; we only heard
Centipede-segments-sometimes; with-
One leg too many.

They caressed magic from
Moon-vivid illusions; and
As whispers wrangled senses,
We found the ground-
This wraith became me.

In distance; I stole.
Attention, yet before that.



We electrified paper once.

    Realy stunning. Wonderfully worded and melodic in some sensual/alien way.

    Very neat, well-written... "..caressed magic from Moon-vivid illusions; and As whispers wrangled senses, We found the ground-This wraith became me..." I like it. No offense, but I appreciate when someone points a typo out to me; 'one leg to many' supposed to be 'too', or did I misread? If so, my mistake; either way, awesome post! -NN
