A cleaving of minds: Joint Cleave Poems

In submission on September 5, 2008 at 7:59 pm

These are joint cleave poems, they were amazingly fun to do together.

One person does one side and the partner/opponent does the other.

1) 29.11.06

Huddled together these fragments – flung through time
_________________coalesce to form – the spine of a withering frown
________________a look of sadness – drops
_______________like trembling rain – beading the glass
_____________before the unveiling – eye

2) 30.10.06

__Pretend the violets count
– on icicle fingers
___________crispy with wit – and rings of truth and lies
_______drawn out the lines – inscribed with frozen thoughts
__Their thoughts must sag – bending brittle branches
as skulking shoots unwind – the breath of winter dies

3) 29.10.06

The words shimmer on my skin – new as bright clouds
______forming water memories – their shapes indistinct
____-__intermingling hesitantly – with inexperienced longing
____I try to hide their meaning – : the peel of shed things
_____falling, ringing like bells, – curled into fists.
