Black spiders preserved by stars

by Jim Benz

a pre-existent given
divine madness
goading him on invisibly
harmlessly wandered the beaches
healing and wounding spirits
into the abyss and back
oral lineages and fraternities
our perception of these symbols
points of departure
the actual texts
transcending the subject and object
undefined aspects of visuality
under the influence of an archetype
what they were made of

Your poems always stand out for me on this site. No one really sounds anything remotely like you. Which is well enough, because I doubt others could pull this kind of stuff off so casually.

Fascinating title; reads like a story board (I think that's the right term) of what could become a good book. ;) I like the condensation sensation of this kind of poem.
