noise, peace (english poetry)

Y’all, I’ve been reading too much American poetry, so I’m going through this mixed phase of modernism and romanticism, I hope something good comes out of this because its certainly weird for me to write like this.

Disclaimer: bulletless doesn’t seem to be a real word, but I don’t get why, so I’m gonna use it anyway.

Disclaimer 2: I’ve since revised the second part of the poem, so if you’re reading for a second time, you may find it different than the original. If you seek the original, you can find it here.

  1. I make up that sort of word all the time, Johnny. My friends are often assaulted with ‘compassionlessness,’ ‘definiteish,’ and other words that are very correctly formed and comprehensible. The word for people who create new words is ‘neologician.’ And my linguist buddy used to say that language is always being created. So being a neologician is a good thing to be. 🙂

    • Holly, thank you so much! I wouldn’t say brilliant, haha, but your input is always so sweet and tender.
      Do you mean Gilles the murderer of children or Gilles the violinist?
      I promise you no children were harmed in the making of this poem.

  2. I love this, the use of the repeats at the end of each stanza remind me of W.B Yeats’ poem ‘The sorrowful child’, and the fact that it isn’t there on the last one makes it even more poignant. You are clearly very talented
