that which is not

night has no dimension, open
to every wandering
walls dissolve between now and then–
time sails a yondering


is it possible to exit
when there’s nowhere to go?–
narratives engulf you, cosmic
tides that whisper: hello–
join us

The NaPoWriMo prompt today was to “pick a poem you drafted earlier in the month and write a poem that contradicts or troubles it”. I chose “Who Is”, here

The collages above were first published in The Time Issue of the journal Feral last April.

Day 30. I made it.

    1. Thanks Muri. I’m glad I did it but it’s exhausting! I will definitely not be posting every day, except that Pure Haiku is featuring me this week–I don’t have to write anything new though, just pick some art and provide a link.


  1. I love the idea that night is open to every wandering mirage. And is it possible to exit when there’s nowhere to go. That line is really cool! The art and writing do a great job of moving within the dream experience.

  2. Congratulations Kerfe! I loved every one of your offerings, and thank you for all the inspiration you’ve given me. “Formless / narratives engulf you” could not more perfectly describe my state of mind during this wild month.

  3. Two wonderful collages and I learn from you each time in looking how you put them together. The words on the 2nd one are amazing and resonant.
