Best Poem of Jay Alexander

Translucence

The waves break like signs
Rise and fall,
Crash into spraying light,
Bright, tight, hold,
The shards unfold,
Beneath a gaping sight,
Fresh as the breath of a cold night;
The scattering sounds flee,
That preying might,
Which will not leave a,
Stone unturned,
And burn into a loose mind;
Once more an umpteenth time,
Smash onto the shore,
Fiery bright.

There's no respite,
From this aching noise,
The buoys bounce,
Strain from stories
Told and retold;
Then pick up some slimy dust,
As day breaks through,
And if ...

Read the full of Translucence

Birdman And New York

Stoned in still water,
Osiris glares at me,
Wings sharp as shields,
Batter the subway overhead;
Somewhere a cadence
Passes, a blue rinse,
Your bird-eye senses that scent,
Chanel No.5,
Pokes it in your brain -

[Hata Bildir]
