Parental Advisory

Hear Ye. Hear Ye. Here we propose to posit prose-like poetry
forming a form of continuous connectivity,
to communicate considerable contemplative reflectivity.

Simply put, we pose this where
prose-like poetry is what you’ll hear
when wondering where the time went
while reading such rhyme wonderments
as oft are wrought, and revealed thusly,
each whit of wit written Hieronymously.

The Word Man

 


Take a deep breath. 
Make a wish for someone. 
Think of a word. 

Of course it can be any word, 
but for the sake of unity 
let's think of the same word. 

Let's think of the word, man. 
Consider the word man, 
and all that it means. 

Now, think of a man. 
Say the word in your head, man. 

Think of the sound 
that the word man 
makes in your mind. 

Extend the word, man. 

Hear the sound of the word. 
Say the word out loud, maaaaaaan. 

Now, think of the letter 
in the word 
that makes a sound. 

Think of the sound 
letter a makes 
in the word, man. 

Hear that sound now. 
Make that sound now. 
Keep that sound in your mind. 

Now, think of a woman 
that you love - 
a mother, a daughter, a sister, a wife. 

Think of your love for her. 
Think of her love for you. 
Be embraced and enveloped by it, 
engulfed and absorbed in it. 

Wonder in it. 
Think of love. 

Now, think of the woman you love 
making the sound of the word, man. 

Think of the woman you love 
hearing the sound of the word, man. 

Now ... 

Think of the woman you love 
thinking the sound of the word 
you took a deep breath for, man. 

Think love sounds. 

*Breathe*
