my Panopticon

My freak show,
My house of throe,
My leper colony… parking for hearses.

I loose a stop-brace,
I pretend ‘Poker face’,
I click on the file My non-finished verses.

  1. Your command of English is superb. So many fine layers of meaning that brings images, visions to the mind. All with so few well chosen words. Also, I enjoy how you connect your poems through the links like threads in a tapestry, each one a donation to a greater scene. Sublime!

    • And now I’m blushed, smitten and overawed by your stunning comments… Thank you, Daniel! English isn’t my native tongue… well, I guess you know this already. I dig dictionaries, I sink into the internet… I try to express myself as close as it possible. I’m picky to words. I learn every day… that’s why your comment is my treasure and award! Thank you!
      (and I’m happy that you liked my tangled posts… I know, some people consider that this is rather annoying… but I wanted to make my blog like an alive creature… with a blood circulatory system and streams of neurons… LOL! Am I Frankenstein?) 😯

    • No Frankenstein at all. I think the feel of navigating to each of your posts is a wonderful journey, each stop a delightful discovery. Instead of a linear step through each of your posts, it’s a path with many branches, well marked, of course. That gives your blog a fresh and unique appeal. And your diligence in making sure your use of language is correct, shows in every line. I admire and respect that extra effort.

    • OMG, OMG, OMG… It’s good that you’re so far away… because I would hug you to death! (Oh… such a sweet departure to the Kingdom come) 😛
      Thank you! I thrill when I hear compliments for my English… if only my speaking were so good as my writing (sad sigh)

    • LOL! I accept your hug and hug you back. It’s a reward to read your work. I don’t detect any accent at all 🙂 Hopefully, my Southern slang isn’t too difficult either. Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂 -Daniel

    • Oh, thank you, John!
      I really appreciate your opinion and enjoy with your comments!

      Hmmm… generally, I have a tendency to short writings. It’s something like to take a stone (a huge clew of thoughts and words) and cut off all unnecessary (extract a core-idea)

      Oops… I sounded immodest… OK! You caught me!
      I’m just a non-native English Speaker :))))
      The short verse, the less of mistakes :))))

      Hey! I’m kidding! I have some loooooong stories 🙂
      Have a nice day!

    • Thanks, Cat!
      Yes, yesterday we posted practically simultaneously 🙂 I was under the influence of my post still when I saw yours… probably I should get used to this already… but every time at this moment my heart skips a beat :))

      I love your writings too, Cat.
      Hush-hush… hush-hush…
      This rhythm… under a thin crispy crust…
      It sounds like snow crunches under felt boots.
