Days of Unreason, day one prompt:
“In this world of dreams don’t let the clock cut up your life in pieces.” – Jim Harrison
The solid brass slicing voices
of Regulator clocks hanging
over our heads disillusion sing.
Creation through us flows
freely, allowing us to ignore
today. Our calendar plans
crash imagination’s flight;
loss of lives – details at ten.
The solid brass workings
of the clock, your life dissects.
Do not allow time’s constraints
to sushi-fy your better dawns,
laughing storms, sunsets of awe.
A little over a year ago, I joined Jillys2016 in a challenge called “28 Days of Unreason.” She culled quotes from the poems of Jim Harrison in a book called Songs of Unreason. We used the quotes as prompts; diving boards suspended over the abyss of poetry. Jill is revisiting unreason, and I am skipping gleefully along. Come and join the fun!
