compensating closeness


compensating closeness
with another
anonymity
of amorous affirmation

massive muscled
exhilaration
exhaled to
floodlights and
rhythmic beats
that rip my heartbeats
raw

hands go:
clap clap clap
stagedived closures burning

Freddie_Mercury_performing_in_New_Haven,_CT,_November_1978
Marian inspire us with the music of Freddie Mercury at toads. somehow I tried to put myself in his shoes and trying to imagine the ambiguity of feeling he might have felt up there on the stage.

    interesting, i think i expect form poetry when i visit you. i think this is appropriately not that.
    love that photo of Freddie. gosh this whole exercise is making me extremely ferklempt. 🙂

  2. Not easy to capture that energy in words but you have conveyed a sense of stage presence here with your terse lines. Great response.

I love your feedback
