Mary Kasimor, "3 Poems"

Mary Kasimor

global shapes
Apples are an apparition
of wolf
Tongues delight
in the fascination
of shape & flight
a roaming structure
or Unsung
a landed white
Bird
a wealth of Orchard
exchange the bees
for memory
the skin membrane arranged
as Keys shines onto
a domain
Tactile
Female the Bee skims
Cuneiforms & global
shapes of honey


page 59

another twister shortened
the gold
alchemy
the answers died in electro-
magnetic fields
on marshy land
ducks drink the wet winds

between monday &
friday the river
consorts
with realtors
their days waving on
clotheslines
crawl with ants
worms slink
away in metal bands

indeed
they wrap their voices around wires
a summer evening
of cotton breezes
also curtains
that blow homeward 
I crossed the tea
& learned the witch’s craft
a hobby
of stubborn children play
with herbs &
star crossed skies

she mixes
dust on a veil of rain 
water rubbed raw
the stone’s forehead
a chain of events lead to thought
disguising survival’s ancient face
so sad
you said
you died
flipping to regulations on page 59
you float away in a helium
buzz of strawberries


triangle direction

the ghost returned
walked on
the ship
fingered
lightning
spun the myths
balanced the light
today starving
& distant
the words
were true
I left
doubt
disturbed
the night
in the back yard 
in checkered
light rephrasing the river
a deer
eyes spooked
the darkness garden
triangle tangles
the gleam of sirens
& teeth
the car drove down the alley
isolating storefronts 
mingling
the carelessness
of
deer’s tongues
as it wanders
feels the direction
south
the sigh of danger
& smoke of cigarettes
no one
is owned
but a worker’s
worn out face
at 3 a.m. 
& the train’s patient
movement
motion & reckless natures
forget &
lean forward
the man wears
nothing
his voice
conceals life
is
too vivid
between the windows
I never look
out before
it’s over
its sorrow
has numerous
ways of
counting
I
have none

Mary Kasimor:I have been writing poetry for many years.  I see my poetry as a continual exploration of language and how it works in poetry.  I often compare poetry to experimental visual art in which the language (or the medium) is broken down and re-assembled in new and interesting ways that then create new and perhaps even multiple meanings.”
