Formerly Badass Horrible Poetry

This isn't just a poetry blog. Let's be honest, a lot of what I post is poetry but there are more often than not also postings about short stories. I do try to keep this blog separate from my others and post strictly creative work here. Some of it will be better than others, and much of it is in first or second draft stage when posted. These are raw works, and there will be spelling and grammar troubles at times because I use this blog to gauge what works and what doesn't. I use it as a place to get feedback. That's the reason it is "horrible". Because it's not finished-- And why should it be? We all want feedback but most of us are too afraid to put ourselves out there.

Welcome to my word.

argument of the world based on horizon

argument of the world based on horizon

are you of the sky
when fingers flex
weave the lacework of dew drops
notches clipped back twisting
dials of a pocket watch
do you slip on the squubquick
ten thousand footprints
squelching on the same mud trail
are you of the dirt?
i unzip the woven
and flex like the blue between branches
outlines dissolve
in the 3rd dimension
depth of stepping
depth around the knotted trunk
relics of space
are voids of Hecate
her howling wolf
Erato of Thalia
i am neither to vulcan fumaroles
& not to the decay of petals
but i will paint my toes
in the vex between a lightning bolt
& its amber song
trace my sights along the closing lashes
the tongues of latitude
the half shade sun

Some Neologisms

I got bored and made up some neologisms for things I didn't have words for. Feel free to use if you like them!

1.     Honeymist – n. (Hun-E-mist) the lingering atmosphere of musk that remains after a skunk has passed nearby

2.     Banthresh – n. (ban-thresh) the humid energy or wind that buzzes through trees and causes the branches to thrash, just before a storm rolls in

3.     Vex – n. (veh-ks) the moment of anticipation and stillness that occurs between a flash of lightning and a rumble of thunder

4.     Chiarlyshaunt – n. (She-ARE-liss-haunt) a mist that rolls through the streets of a suburb or city and luminesces orange in the glow of street lights

5.     Silvishaunt – n. (Sill-viss-haunt) a mist that rolls between trees in a forest and luminesces white in moonlight

6.     Squubquick – n. (Skwuh–b-quick) the mud that forms in grass, left over – a pathway travelled by many feet at winter’s thaw. Becomes slicker the more often it is used and squishes readily beneath a boot heel.
