    Hello, everyone,
    My name is Marcus Scott. I am a freelance Chinese/Japanese/Spanish]English translator and an amateur poet, composer and video game fanatic. I have always been interested in the written word and in what it reveals about souls, both our own and those we encounter throughout our life's journey. I feel privileged to be able to share my work and my thoughts with you, and look forward to seeing your works. Most of my work centers around love and self-awareness, though sometimes the themes get quite dark, touching upon such subjects as death, vengeance and madness. However, I do intend to branch out an experiment with my poetry, and am excited about doing so even as I sit here and tell you about it. Thank you so much for reading this message, and I cannot wait to see what this community has to offer!

    What follows is a poem deadicated, to a dear, lost friend from Emerson college, who in great literary signifigance introduced me to the great
    persona work of John Berryman, & the literary fireworks of his spectacular 'Dreamsongs.

    For Susan Whittaker

    Death comes again with a flood of wings
    lost comerade oh so mind!
    down the 'rabbit hole'
    with no valid reason
    , other than the bewildered spiral
    of the unexplainable journey, itself

    Leapyearing the memories come out blind & screeching
    like so many startled bats
    out of the violated sanctuary
    of their emptiness-filled caves

    like something inexplicable
    out of a rocket scientist's handbook
    no doubt propelled, by the probing vastness of the sheer hysteria
    of some distant, dwindling
    long ago, barely whispered tale of insecure redemption

    the Regrets
    on the other hand
    come on like worn out phoenixes
    who are far too ashamed
    , to rise up
    out of the sobering wreck
    of their spent ashes
    which smolder amid the pantomined silences

    When in point-of-fact
    its like pretending to use Fire
    as a cry for help
    when its only a mere excuse
    , to burn the bankrupt landscape

    By Ron Marcus
