Polyambiguity

Polyambiguity

A Poem by mattavelli
"

No punctuation to add to the confusion

"
----

Here’s a plastic thought

Another daydream for the heap

No molded rhyme this time

Just a smooth sheet of metaphor

Overstretched and gaping allusion

A wrapper for recycled thoughts

And polymemories

Uniquely malformed

A filmy single-use example

Of want degrading love

While time erodes will

For me to wrap my head around

And suffocate

Love your title word, which should become the catch-phrase for our times! In this day & age (when responses can be so opinionated, heated, and/or weird) maybe it's better to be polyambiguous in our writings! You've mastered the art of writing something intriguing that anyone can inject their ideas into! And perhaps we can all poly-agree! (((HUGS)))

Oh , not plastic again!! I do not like that word. It is destroying our planet, we throw away much too much, a one time used and BAM, it's gone; could be that with a love tryst too I guess. I like the way you used your words; well done Mat
Best, B.

I'm not a fan of anything that is not natural or non biodegradable .. and made a decision yonks ago to try and reduce my own carbon footprint .. Pet hates include all forms of plastics and any derivatives thereof, polystyrene, Formica, etc etc ..

p.s

My aversion to the above referenced products began quite a few years before my Godmother suffocated her self with a supermarket plastic bag ..

Originality is your forte without doubt .. Write on my friend

Oooh I like I like. Dark and yet true. I enjoy your morbid take on seeing things. To me, it felt like the loss of a memory of some sort, sort of a distortion that eventually suffocates one's own thoughts. That memory means something but can also take down a person without a fight. :D I dunno if that's what you meant, but I really enjoyed it. Haha, I'm a sort of sardonic person for the most part so thought it's not funny, but I can see it applying in life with interesting results.

Matt!!

I may not have the smarts to deconstruct your poetry upside down and backward, having been kicked out of Oxford for biting the head off a bat on moving-in day, and again a year later at Harvard but with a Pomeranian, but I know good music and I appreciate your choice of words and how well they flow. BTW, I employed the changes you suggested with the stanzs/ line breaks of my interstate poem and it's a huge improvement, so I hat-tipped you at the end. Now if you'll excuse me, I have 100 plastic bags to intercept before they reach your mailbox.

You guys are crazy. :)

the lazy hazy days
of a plastic and throwaway
society ..its everywhere

trashing the earth as we go

you.re so
very welcome;
The title seems to speak of uncertainty or vagueness in many areas. Recycled thoughts and polymemories are mentioned, so it would seem the poem's subject concerns the effects of the past on the present. The last four lines appear to be about mistakes made in past relationships that are beyond the possibility, even the desire, for rehabilitation. To say it in technological jargon, human relationships are a b***h.

The wrong little be can suffocate just like plastic and the over use of it. Each like is creative crafted in this poem.

Ah-HAH, Matt! 🙄

The metaphorical thrust of your words pulled my mind into two different directions:
One, how mindlessly and apathetically the world's entirety has become to the lasting damage plastic has, and will continue, to do to our environment, animals and humans, alike. It's mind-boggling insanity on a scale history has never before known. For example, a couple of years back I made a vow to buy as little as possible nothing that included plastic … after a week i gave-up, because virtually "everything" we need to survive (except raw vegetables and fruit) is packaged in some form of plastic. Hell, even water comes in plastic and we pump gasoline into plastic cans … on 'n on 'n on 'n onnn......sheesh!!!

Direction two, took me into the direction of how much of today's poetry is so ambiguous even Einstein couldn't figure it out. Ah well, could just be Me. But, knowing You, you meant it both ways to intentionally confuse those of us in our dotage … LOL!

Thanks, M'Fine Friend, for sharing another from your deepening well of ingenious originality! ⁓ Richard 🍃
