Chapter 1


I walk into a cage of landscaped roof

and flavored fumes,

dimly lit corners of sombreros and welded reptiles on the ceiling,

in a town of murals where cash is king from past crimes history.

A rainbow feathered bird sits on a perch by the door

daring for a cup of tea where time stands still

from a world of counterfeit smiles and organic greed.

novicemaster: The imagery in this prose poem is glorious. I love the way you manipulate words. You seem to have harnessed them to bend to your every whim. The slightly archaic ones like "whilst" make this resemble a fairytale. The entire idea of a prose poem is brilliant. I didn't get the ending at first, but ...

ItsAnnier: Great original idea! Long poems don't often hold me, but yours did to the end and made me want more of the story. Was it a Crime of passion with the murderer returning to the crime scene? I hope further poems will tell me more!
