from the womb of acknowledgement

from the womb of acknowledgement

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


from the womb of acknowledgement


placid fornication, words
form together like spliced bodies

making love, making lines
making intimate themes
and rhymes

abed in abetting 
among
sheets of linen 
of linear lines
of belief
of structure
procreating in response to sounds
of life

heart beats
heartbeats
reproducing poems
from infinite kisses of the keys

it's never just a flirtation
but an affiliation
with an excitation
reconciliation
with a muse 
we just can't refuse---

you are kind, thank you.......
this is a well-done metaphor: lovemaking and writing are conjoined without being crass

i also like how this poem is involved enough to include alliterations without seeming pretentious - this is a sign of a legitimately talented wordsmith

Ah, the love of the muse....our true Valentines! She does kiss us with the thoughts, the words, the inspiration. No way we can say "no" to her. Lydi**

this is sheer class. Lovely play of words.

''heart beats
heartbeats
reproducing poems
from infinite kisses of the keys''

love the above lines.

I know its unnatural, but i always found the word ''womb'' macabre, which couldn't be more far from the truth since its the cradle of life. Exquisite poem Jacob.

thank you for your very kind review, Ana...

At times writing requires little effort as in placid fornication. The flow of words simply comes and form and structure become our creation, a born poem or piece of prose. And many of us are so compelled to reap satisfaction this way. A sort of phoneme masturbation. Perhaps a droll account of your feelings about writing Jacob?
