Overriding Instinct

Overriding Instinct

A Poem by Brett Campaigne

postorgasmic ressentiment

seeds and branches entrench emotion entangling soil

                cracking bedrock with its judo persuasion

      perserveres at 'path of least resistance'

  and you are co-patient from your comfortable vantage

where did you come from?

these wires, this mother-board?

a mark of salience leaping out of a gland, losing opacity

          have you now lost your mother?

                                    No, her echoes attatch themselves to your brow

                    "I am here to love and to guide you

                                   but if you lay in my arms too long

              you will dream until your death awake".

                   all of a sudden I was there, and the world was open.

"I am here to love and to guide you

all of a sudden I was there, and the world was open.

stunning. Simply stunning.

i agree with the below review, that line: cracking bedrock with its judo persuasion was an outstanding line i also loved when you said: and you are co-patient from your comfortable vantage
that really speaks to me. excellent write! full of emotion and imagery.

Brett, I love this!
cracking bedrock with its judo persuasion

was favorite line, and the "mother board" thing!
Very good!
Sincerely,
Adam
