Ringing of the Bards #11

The Ringing of the Bards poetry carnival organized by Billy. The project is a way for poets to be exposed to other poets to enjoy. Billy also runs as a way to promote ourselves. Check out the link to find out how and where to nominate as a web resource.

Below are 2 collage (cut up) poems of hyperlinked lines. The lines come from the poems sent in for the 11th edition of Ringing of the Bards. Although each line is a clipping, it was too hard to read with underlines so just a phrase from each line was made the link.

Examining Yesterday

Solid gray, dancing though
the plaid of mullions on the ceiling

in your dreams you might believe that
replete with flattering admirations
you’ve dealt democracy so many blows
to echo through each lighted rafter.

How were you to know that
then: you stopped dead in your tracks
burnished fallen blushes

Not You, Alone

You oft behave as if your word’s the gospel.
it scrolls across the sheet.

at wee a.m. under the delusive grip
in its own climate
when despair brings you to wine in the darkness

frozen by the words that sneaked
amongst the pithy

Soon, gentle paces, muffled footstep
people really come together.


The Ballad of Joementum Joe Lieberman is set to the tune of Danny Boy by Madeleine at MadKane
