Minutes slow into years in absolute darkness
Paths interlock and escape, creep up my throat
Thousands of pounds triple time and stomach, swims
Fingernails and flashy talk
Get lost every time finding you smile—never crossed paths again
Old flawed decision borne in whiskey and clothes
we meditate his destination as we travel East
blackout Heart in a strange truck
Death is cancer away from his brow,
Smell of loneliness: rotten, dirty and intelligent
Red periodically sped up and slowed down
Books in random boxes, clothes tossed
need to go to emergency room


I was inspired by the Found Poetry Review to try a new way to use my writing “scraps”. I took some of my old poetry and flash fiction, used The Lazarus Corporation to “blenderize” it and dug through the wreckage for new phrases.

  1. That method worked really well for you, to produce a deeply emotional poem — and thanks for the links; I shall certainly think about trying it too.

      1. I have no idea how to do something like that, but I do notice that the blogs that seem successful at that sort of thing are hosted by people who are authentically themselves and connect with people in a really genuine way….so my only advice would be to just be yourself 🙂
