    Don't cringe
    if I rip the sinew
    from the bell on South Street
    and wrap it around
    the rattly
    bag o' bones
    swinging
    from cob-webbed rafters
    like rhesus monkies
    flinging shit at their own brains
    to scramble the stimulus
    hard-wired to their minds by
    Jesus doctors
    in the days before people died
    inside before
    they died out
    Seems like the thing to do
    when every mirror I look into
    is broken with grief
    stricken with shards of hate jammed
    in their spinal cords
    Not the kind of thing you can
    dislodge with a needle
    and alcohol
    unless the needle is attached
    to a tube full of
    hydrocodone and the alcohol
    is on a tray to be
    served to all the would-be
    patrons of
    this hollowed saint
    emptied in the steets
    flooding onto
    the sidewalks, a river
    of bile and red blood cells
    toting all the trash
    of the city
    to the bell on South Street

      Note to James "Alexian" Neal - feelings aren't always clearly defined. Also, Black Rock Tractor: I'm sorry, I didn't read the description. I really like this piece. Becky

      I hadn't read your description I love Kandinsky. I like the machine gun rapidness of this. It's like how Kandinsky filled his canvases with images that almost look organic but not quite. I focus on that period of his work because that seems to be to that to which you're referring. You know, with the medical references and such being "organic."

      This is a good expression of disillusionment with contemporary day to day living. I like the medical/ anatomical images. This is like Thom Yorke in that respect. I think it's spelled monkeys though.

      Odd that she says that it expresses your feelings effectively, yet she doesn't even seem to be able to discern what those feelings are, no? Your imagery is strong--very strong. And the line breaks don't interrupt the flow of the poem, I think.

      I think you have slightly too many line breaks: they interrupt the flow of the poem, and I know how addictive they can get. This is a powerful piece. It feels like a very fierce criticism of something, which isn't entirely clear: life? People? The city? I don't know whether it needs to be more specific, but in any case it conveys your feelings really effectively, uses good imagery and hits hard. Becky
