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. Bulletless should definitely be a word! I love the way you transition from verse to verse in this. I can’t speak about the technical aspects of the poem, since I’m ignorant of those, but I enjoyed this immensely.

  2. 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. 🙂

    1. I’m positively not the first human to say bulletless, cannot take credit! And yes, I know well of neologism, its a very common trait of the Portuguese language, since most things about the language are maleable.

      The other day, I was fiddling with the possibility of actually inventing a word for a plane tree fruit, since it doesnt have one in the english language. Still havent been able to produce a sounding word though.

      Did you like the poem, Toad?

    2. Apologies to Johnny if this is off topic but the ‘spirit’ seized me. lol

      M.T., I found something fascinating. English has a vacuum installed where its symbolic legend should go; that is, where you find out what each letter means. Think Kanji. We installed a vacuum there to use as a ferment.

      I have right temporal lobe damage, which I suspect gave me acquired savant syndrome, and allowed me to become the spigot where this ferment’s product is distilled.

    1. 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.

  3. 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
