Create (A Tribute to Arzel Joy)

Create (A Tribute to Arzel Joy)

A Poem by Eric Pudalov
"

A spoken word poem dedicated to fellow writer Arzel Joy.

"
Destined to create
From the date she was created,
Arzel will not be negated,
Nor will she be emulated!

Are you related 
To these words she composes?

No...
But you absorb through osmosis,
A mind pathway that turns you ferocious,
Until you accept that she's quite
Precocious, and you hear from
These poets, "Of course everyone knows this!"

Yet she's told us her muse,
One whose name you've confused,
Has morphed into a stranger,
Like a mystic form-changer,
A thought that makes souls
Feel like foreign exchangers...

But when her muse is fluoresced,
We see that she has expressed
Her intimate words of the lovers caressed...
And we who write know 
That our feel-
ings
u n d r e s s e d
cre-ate
sense-you-all
pow-er
like we're verbally
SEXED!!

And after...this ecs-
tatic feeling starts... 
to wane,
Arzel, like her fellow poets
Must keep herself sane...

Arzel -
We ask for a dose of
Your verbal cocaine...
So please

Write us a sonnet, 
Villanelle, or quatrain
Because from your poetry
We cannot...

abstain.

Really descriptive language. Since it's spoken, it'd probably sound different then what I have imagined in my mind, but overall I think it's great!

:) Well done sir. I would be grateful of that gesture. Thank you.
Blue, is a friend and she could turn any subject matter (from an unassuming rock, a relationship, etc..) into very exceptional poetry piece. You captured so well her talent. A wonderful tribute to a young yet versatile writer.
