Divine In Blindness

fooling around she says simply
her hair whispies and butter toned blouse
a sensuous sistine anemone
graced with genetic code
whisper
fill up the qualms of avenues
of boardwalks
for the listeners of last years
wonder
begone in the firefly’d gloom
sweet morning of our running moon
our often swallowed remorse for what came after
he was swaying in the sounds of her flute
to the river bodies and aquatic life
nibbling gently on the bread crumbs
beneath the water she greets him
her skirt a pile beneath the sand.

Sometime

before the earth we were
finned swimmres of no afternoon

no morning just
space

This is a
place

that calls you often
when you are abot to fall
asleep

you start to fantasize
about a simpler time
a time when you weren’t
bothered with
consumer culture’d milk
or employment corn
color’d with commentary

there
is a
place
inside your body
where this swimmer
still swims
still moves about
and in some of us
it is very
large and
in others
it is so very
very
com
press’d
and
hidden

still the
swimmer
swims on

 


“Divine In Blindness” + “Sometime” are both previously published in Fuck Art, Let’s Dance Issue #012.

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
