Description: Last year I went to Poland and this is reflections on that I guess (coupled with Buried in the air)
Thanks for reading, let me know whatever you think to it
Your Hasty Execution -------------------------------------------
The steel cage
and chopping-board tracks
border the cherry blossom
and the gallows:
The firing range
casts iron-bar shadows,
framing cell-wall graffiti
on permanent display.
The languages of Europe
meander through the air,
through fence-holes, razor-wire,
and falling leaves,
finding solace among
their wind-blown graves.
I like this piece, I like the contrast between the not so beautiful and the pure beauty of the place. Personally I always wanted to visit Poland, I actually have family there but I have never gotten the chance.
I also like how I couldn't realy see a structure to it, it was more of a description in simple terms. I think thats what a writer has to do sometimes, sit back and write what they see because perspective plays so much of a role and poetry is about making things come alive with meaning.
And the meaning is the best part. Its painful and its harsh but there is beauty in it.
So all in all great read and thank you for the comment on my piece a while back.
