Galaxy Girl

postcard 9s

Linda at dVerse is looking for surrealistic poetry.  The collage box Oracle is always ready to offer a surreal commentary on life.  But this prompt also made me think of poetry generators–there are so many online now.  I decided to take my poem and plug its words into a few of them.

the world of the future
returns to galaxy girl


ominous city
a rosy red lips returns
by the galaxy


I pretend to return
I feel unidentified
I touch the future
I worry the world
I cry galaxies
I am a girl

and from one I’ve used a lot in the past:

The world walks like a cold galaxy.
Where is the light window?
The dark sidewalk invisibly identifys the girl.
The big window silently desires the galaxy.

There are lots more to try–just type in “poetry generator” and be prepared to eat up a lot of time…

My altered postcard is of the Smithfield St Bridge in Pittsburgh, from a poster by Lantern Press.

postcard 2s

I’ve been doing some postcards in combination with the Collage Box and its Oracle.  For this one, I took a postcard of Van Gogh’s “The Seine with the Pont de la Grande Jutte” and added a few elements and a poem.

constructed out of
the shadows–transparent soul–
my body here undone
