Keep Your Spirit

Keep Your Spirit

A Poem by JoshuaSpeaking


“Keep Your Spirit”
by Joshua Giacometti
Indivisible rays, spitting soot.
Burning house, breaking flood of red drought.
            What do you think, Alexandra?
            Kiss my melting face, kiss my charred lips.

This is my vision of the future.

This was creepy and I loved it! The descriptions are poignant and hard hitting even though the poem itself is so short. I really liked the way you set it up as well it helped the flow quiet a bit. Great write.

Ah I love this, vague poetry at work, and it is fantastic! Did I mention that I like the surrealism poetry? So much is said, and unsaid. Nothing is fed to the reader, but everything one needs to figure out the well hidden meaning is there. You have given me much to ponder and dissect. Though you may need to splurge the real theme behind this poem to me eventually =P The images, flow, language it works so well. Very refreshing and though provoking read. Good to see that there are still good writers on this site, they are few and far between is all I will say. I must go read more of your work, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed your writing.

Cheers, kudos to a wicked poem (and i don't say that about many poems, i don't blow smoke as you probably know)
