The Motions


Recommended Posts



I read

other Poets

Sometimes - I feel - I am

Being pelted by stones     My Heart

is suspended somewhere in everywhere  emptycaverns

soon to be gone gone gone

othertimes more a nod and wink

behind the scenes 

traitors to surface - we pretend to have secrets

in depth -


a set and setting of Objects

with their  suspect susceptibility to hallucination

and other distortions

a divine construct of paint and faux faux

meant to be seen at a comfortable      distance

or be subject to ever-ever-ever moving

swarm ‘All those vibes’ resonate resound repeat

renew ‘from which we create physiks cosmos and



or so 

we tell 

each other

part of the greeting

a handshake which says

‘no matter how complicated or complicit

our weaving 

we just 

don’t know’ There!


right here!

It gets into your bones

this hollow

The Motions

an echo of the Un

the Not the Silence

before and after -


‘ See? I told you.’

Hi Juris,  This is a compelling piece and it has pulled me back to read over and over.  The repetition of words was very effective in cementing the movement of the poem in my mind. i really enjoyed reading this.

I wonder if "pelted by stones" is a good thing. On the one hand, you're feeling it, on the other hand, it's unpleasant. But which is better, the pelting or the nod and the wink?!? I'm just going through the motions ...
