Just noticed there's a break in the last stanza on the first link - probably best to view the whole poem by scrolling down the main page link on "Literary Burlesque"!
Lots of other great stuff to read there, too.

Andrea said...

Wow. Wow. Wow. You have been so busy lately and doing wonderful things. I love this poem. It's all very inspiring!

Rachel Fenton said...

Gosh, thanks, Andrea! I actually thought of you as I was writing this poem - I had a feeling you'd like it - so pleased you do!

It's a brill site if you hadn't come across it before - I can well imagine some of your work fitting in there.

Very happy to spread a little inspiration!

Titus said...

Good, good poem. I like the perspectives, and Cannibal Feast in particular really resonated. Memorable images throughout.
Cool you!

Rachel Fenton said...

Thank you, JoAnne - and thanks for coming back so soon after your comment on my last post! I haven't slept yet!
Off for some zeds now...I've re-drafted and edited fifty six poems today - pooped!

Lori said...

Macabre. I like how befitting is the image. Your poetry is getting so sophisticated, Rachel. It's great.

Leslie Morgan said...

You are really in your ascendancy, Rae! I am so pleased for you. It was "Four Hours . . . " that nabbed me. I'm in that kind of state and you wrote the words I couldn't come up with. Thank you.

Thomas Taylor said...

Rachel, your poetry is so vivid and your writing so lean. It's exhausting and rather wonderful.

Kass said...

You're on a roll. This poem really makes me want to run wild and eat something raw.

Exciting, unusual work!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Rachel, it appears you have quite a gift! I loved the poem. Good stuff :)

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks, Lori - I find a lot of art work really inspiring. "Sophisticated" - yikes! Better stop now, else I won't "get" what I'm writing!

Rachel Fenton said...

Leslie - is that a sign I'm about to fall flat on my face?!

I'm glad my words resonate for you - thank you - now I must publish something to lift you to the tree tops!

Rachel Fenton said...

Thomas - you just described me! Haha - but seriously, thank you.

Rachel Fenton said...

Kass - go hunt crudites! Roar! Thank you!

Rachel Fenton said...

Wendy - hullo! Thanks - maybe less a gift than a run of luck but I'll take either!

Andrea said...

Oh, that's lovely! Well I definitely do.

Rachel Fenton said...

Andrea, I wrote Objet Trouve after you'd posted the art I said reminded me of Bosch - the rest of the poem tootled along by and by.

Jonathan Gill said...

Congratulations Rachel. Another excellent piece of work. Very intense and dark, just the kind of poetry I like.

Talli Roland said...

Headed over! You're doing so well lately with all your writing - congrats!

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks, Jonathan. Great new profile pic you've got there, too!

Rachel Fenton said...

Thank you, Talli! Appreciate the support.

Rachel Fenton said...

PS Andrea - just noticed you changed your pic half way down the comments - I like that photo - very apt for this post, too!

Golden West said...

Wonderful, Rachel! All your hard work and perseverance bearing sweet fruit - delightful!

Rachel Fenton said...

Thank you, GW - I'm not giving up!

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Love it. Love the stark quality and the surprising images. N x

Rachel Fenton said...

What am I on about, Andrea - "Destroyed Object" is what I wrote after our art ramble! The poem I mentioned before is a totally different one!

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks so much, Nu!
