Poetry is Kindness #clmooc #poetryport

Poetry is kindness
hope of hyperbolic
hugs squeezed
with each stanza
Meter of memories
bouncing on allusions
of Tzu's creation in words

for love builds in
"Heaven in hell's despair"
as verse drops from the
curses of angles and benediction
of demons who sing ars poetica
for us all

Poetry is kindness
from beat poets, to black arts,
and black mountains bards
A blazon shield unifies
humanity
wrapping us in rhythm
and rhyme

Poetry is kindness
A cacophony of cadence
as distinct dissosonace
wiggles into our hearts
as Dante dances though
levels of love
as reality and imagination meet
at Herbert's concrete alter.
and the divorce of death
gives birth to the Dark Room
Collective

Poetry is kindness
whose tears wash
away pain locked in
personified histories
where truth hides
in mysteries of lies

Deep images
assemblages
of destiny with a foot
keeping time in the spirit

Poetry is kindness
Cruelty with heart
jealousy with face
yet through this rage
pain fades

Poetry is kindness
flarfist of of the port
passing poems
as
gifts
rifts
on
borrowed souls
filled with
stolen
meanings
Poetry is kindness
