Book Review for panpiped panacea:

Subterranean Blue Poetry

Volume IV Issue IV


to close this world like a book half-read

where the author clings to a cumbersome plot

where hordes of heroes are sold at a discount

where the heroes’ sorrow is elevated to the imperative

where each page resembles all its predecessors

where all that’s precious is buried in footnotes

or is buried in a flower bookmarking the middle

or in someone’s grey notes left in the margins

to close this trash to slam it shut throw it in a heap

or deep in the river – let the current take it

to save only the flower shriveled and shortlived

to have faith in it . . . – to rewrite everything"
