Wordle #179

Week 170

I cannot abide this malaise,
the transition from limbo
to a cell of artificial design.
I want to live in the bones,
in the spaces creased
with perseverance.
It is in the depths
that I am made whole.

My heart is no longer cordate,
no longer flesh
it is an unsavory ligament
soliloquizing in inertia.
I stow it beneath the floorboards.
I hear it grunting and snuffling
like a fat, grey pig
as my fingers tick
aghast with the passage of time.

They say I am mentally ill,
that I must inoculate myself
against all thought and defect,
that I must become accountable.
I am a homely god,
my creations as mud on linen.
I go up in smoke
and there is no place in me
material enough to stitch.

  1. Ohhhh crap – starting my day with swear words in response, is always a good thing. I read this yesterday? the day before? don’t remember but I wasn’t logged in, – and like how the hell did you take the wordle, with such odd and jarring words, like pig and cordate and fit them seamless into this crunchy poem??? Seriously?

    I want to live in the bones,
    in the spaces creased
    with perseverance.

    …. and the entire second stanza …. what an image!

    They say I am mentally ill,
    that I must inoculate myself
    against all thought and defect,

    and then the rest …. I mean seriously? wholly or holy shit! You are so talented. This is totally rocks – from a grouping of words that are semi-random you pull this out of the hat – Outstanding Yves – totally outstanding.

  2. I can think of few things as scary as being trapped in ones own mind, which is what I felt in reading this. Or locked away, sedated to where you have consciousness but no mobility. Maybe they dont even realize you are still conscious. (like that Metallica song – One)

  3. Be a rebel, repel those that bind creativity.
    We can only live in our own creature created worlds.
    Being accountable isn’t all it is cracked up to be even for gods.
    Or especially for gods who do not live up to the standards they demand or other humans demand of them???
