Rapture of Eden~

Rapture of Eden~

A Poem by NoneOfYourBusiness akaKITTY KUTABAREakaCandyPole

Once upon a time Apocalypto wore a kerchief


Old Crone churned butter . . .

young girl cut pieces from her skin
for the morning sky
old dog settled into the grass
at her feet

young cat caught a finch
in her pocket
monocle hiding one human eye

they said the rapture would begin with a trumpet
men lie

it began with the churning of butter
and a broken girl without a heart
but who still remembered her smile

I loved the images you used in this ..there is a sort of sadness and the feeling we all have that you can't really capture it with words that are transparent because part of it is the darkness..anyhow loved it

Heavy stuff and I liked it. Great feeling and visualization. I feel a sub story from you maybe hidden within the story. No matter what a very nice read and thank you for sharing.

I think that rapture would begin with something as simple...and complex...as that. I hope it would. It makes more sense than emanating from cold hearted power brokering, something has to be the fulcrum and why not make it something beautiful. It wouldn't justify, but it may make the bitter pills easier to swallow. Missed your words...awesome as always.

Self mutilation begins
when our minds
do not compute
the line drawn
what significant others
and what
they do.

is no rapture
beyond a church
in smoke and mirrors

and the bedroom.
