Two Poems by Carter Monroe

July 18

psychotic expulsions in a loomed dichotomy
form the basis for the miscreants who proffer the dogma
incessantly,  the shakes continue
in the wake of manifest destiny
lined by the path of past mistakes

there’s a wandering sense of chaos
subverting the delusion of objectivity,
creating another cave
another fire
a new series of shadows

July 26

damn this equestrian ballet
that comes in the back and forths
between mama and the den
and the shaking head
that sees the “other guy”
in a skewed light

doesn’t know from where it came
or how it came about
they were just people
who met at Plato’s crossroads
puked together
and shared a cigarette.

  1. “in the wake of manifest destiny
    lined by the path of past mistakes”

    short memories or historical lobotomy? it’s like a “No Exit” hell where you’re doomed to keep repeating the same sequence over and over again.

    “creating another cave
    another fire
    a new series of shadows”

    Maybe Plato was right… perception is reality.

    Thnaks Mr. Monroe.

  2. I like these much, Carter, especially the second one.

  3. yes, plato with his play dough has been justified by these mere mortal words . . .

  4. David Smith Says:

    Mr. Monroe is simply put the rarest of cats. A gentle country-boy saddled with Leo Gorcey’s dead-end brain. A steel trap inside the hen house.
