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

---

I wanted to add a couple of things. It is good to see you move away from so much end rhyme but at the same time your rhymed poetry hints at really great poets like Keats and Yeats. In that regard you are somewhat of an old soul. I hope you can find your genuine self.

I feel the rhythm is very good yet more like a jazz erratic beat due to the purpose of no punctuation. I find this oddly fits you from the review you left me and I enjoyed reading this and look forward to read more of your work.

Thanks for reading, Lonicera! :)
not as confusing as you might think Matt. the opening line may read plastic, but the poem itself has elasticity, more rubbery if you will, the more times you read, the deeper one wants to sink into the message. Great read

Pretty dumb poem. Going for a polyamorous/polymer bit. I get it. But what bugs me is you look like a guy that gets blueballed by fat chicks after having spent $50 on a half assed dinner date at Applebee's. Then when you drop her off, you try to awkwardly kiss her like that dude in that crappy '90s blind date show that says "It's your life. Take a chance." And then the girl just taps you on the shoulder. OWNED. I win. My poetry is superior. you lose. NEXT.

I’d offer you a digital hug, but you’d probable make my pixels sticky. Rage on. :)
Mattavelli,
I appreciate the inventiveness of your diction. There is a fine line between clever and pointless but you managed to straddle it. An interesting poem.

nothing plastic about this poet...straight shooter and the words hit their target with great accuracy.
"a daydream for the heap"
but a poem for the vault...
I could suffocate on regrets quite easily.

Polyambiguity (?), Hmm (?). Boy did I get a surprise from this poem's content, but --- I like it enough to read it twice.

Looked for a new poem and wondered, why aren't you writing? This poem however is well worth a second read as it's high on the agenda at the moment. We have ocean's filled with plastic. Seven miles down, it's been found. What a dump we are making of our planet. What a clean up exercise we need. Hoping all is good with you.
