Volcano 3

the details repeated,
magnified, untraveled–
living outside
a map

random lines break down–
the page explodes, caught trembling–
from nothing, vast light

The Kick-About poem and collage and Oracle 2 Badger above serve as a prelude to my third Volcano offering at Pure Haiku, which you can read here.

  1. I watched the first episode of 1899 yesterday (son told me to) and your poem reminds me of the atmosphere.

    Not sure if the series is any good. I watch so little nowadays that almost everything keeps me awake at night afterwards.

      1. Yes, it’s the same anxiety.

        We don’t have a TV or Netflix and company, but occasionally when one or other of the kids is here we stream something they say we really must watch. The moving pictures excite my neurons too much. Not used to it.

  2. I was just reading a National Geographic about the volcano that erupted in the Canary Islands recently and your poems and this collage in particular are fitting right into the mental space that opened. Newness and destruction and life and loss, and above all a connection to shaping on a cosmological scale… You’re capturing all of that volcanic energy brilliantly!
