Depersoned

Depersoned

A Poem by Dead Alive Dave
"

.

"

We’ll find out now, won’t we?

Unfortunately.

Eventually,

We all do lose context.

Alien is a real feeling,

To be felt involuntarily.

(depersonalization)

It’s not so very delicious. . .

“Do you know what a golfer’s wife does before she has sex?

     She drops her husband off at the golf course.”  Connie Chung

It’s not so salacious, either,

If it’s deliciously and very informally

          Sanctified.

(divorce is a sin dontcha know this?)

As false worship becomes common

     good sex becomes very necessary (none the less)

Gratification is God (you should know this)

Most everyone cheats. . . dontcha know that?

     baby doll

Over time, we will all lose our meaning.

(to justify this, or that)

Dissolved into time,

Gamed and partitioned. . .

Carefully.

Morality truly is something -

Extremely relative.

(to be lost)

Adolf Hitler… Time Magazine’s Man of the Year

1938

(and perverted)

Jesus f*****g Christ

    none of this matters

(wash your hands)

       be ashamed

        if you can

If you're stupid,

You will do this again

        and again

(perhaps even after you're dead)

        from a great many pieces

    - we really are each other

Incarnate

Under a different shade

(from the same light)

The same place

*until an end which has yet to exist

    there will be different shades

      again and again

Ad infinitum

       forever

           and then

Mr and Mrs Homogenous

(until entropy separates every f*****g one of us)

          It's not over


Beyond the horizon. . .

I can love anything there,

Because there is nothing

Because I am nothing

Because there is no ending

             ever

(I'm not done yet)

     I don't know that

I'm a poetry fan. I'm an amateur poet... I don't/won't know when I'll say otherwise? My first reaction to any poem, is the quantity of text involved (inexplicably so!... so, having experienced that reaction, I'll return) ~ then perhaps try and get some 'feel' for this work?

I love this. Really I do. Get better with each read. I can relate. You have used sex as a way of depersonalisation, and it work, but it could be anything that begins an undoing of self. On a side note - once you have had good, really good sex you can't go back o average sex - it's near impossible when you felt the light like that. I feel sorry for people who don't really know what good sex is yet) ' Until entropy separates every one of us' yes funnily enough I was thinking about this very thought yesterday when I was driving and listening to Triple J and I heard a female rapper nail a song, she sounded like she was from West London - I was thinking about how with population, sub cultures were becoming the'er own solid threads, and these threads will of course multiply and become a lot more commonplace, but what happens when the threads start to fray ???? what happens when everything becomes knotted, crazy times. But you are right, oh so very right, we are all each other which reminds me right now if the Beatles ...

I am you and you are me .....

The last stanza - oh yeah I will meet you there - I will probably be done with sucking life out of life, you know cos that the way I roll - but I dunno ...

Some thoughts here seemed random (disconnected) to me. About losing context, people relate to people situationally so when the situation diffuses, time to move on. Loved the joke about the wife and sex. You know, sometimes, cheating is a moral thing to do. F**ck the world. What struck me most in this poem is that for an alien or for someone who is nothing, you did an awful lot of thinking. A contradiction of sorts.

I was pretty drunk when I wrote this. It's probably terrible, I'll fix it a little later.
The theme is one of Nihilism here. Are you a nihilist? Alienation and separation. although i kinda chuckled at the golf course joke it kinda felt weird in the poem. still, very good, creative as always dead man

Making the reader feel weird is almost always my intention.

I'm a faux realist. . ... read more
