Before Burroughs

Before Burroughs

A Poem by Souladareatease
"

Palindromic Poetry

"
Letters, the beginning of a word
share in reason, sentences heard
The Ancient Days of Urizen given
Los Sentient Being, Blake's vision
steeped and seep ways, upon thinking
Long were his questions, slept upon
Forlorn views, negatives muse, sigh lined.
Before colors again adorned sprit and mind
Grimm or glitter of fairy dust
hues that dance the odd or macabre
these joys and public displays
carry me through this very day
With light that shines positive
dawns break, entering as living dead, yet
With light that shines positive
carry me through this very day
these joys and public displays
hues that dance the odd or macabre
Grimm or glitter of fairy dust
Before colors again adorned sprit and mind
Forlorn views, negatives muse, sigh lined.
Long were his questions, slept upon
steeped and seep ways, upon thinking
Los Sentient Being, Blake's vision  
The Ancient Days of Urizen given
share in reason, sentences heard
Letters, the beginning of a word

I really like literary experiments, Ouilipo, univocal poetry, or lipograms, snowballs or in this case a nod at palindromes and William Burroughs ( I read The Naked Lunch many years ago), here you base this on William Blake`s work, which I know too. So a poem that inspires me to look again at certain creative minds. So I poem I enjoyed looking at.
