    dotsA small interludedots

    A light flashes, eyes flutter,
    a body shudders,
    bound by a coma no more.

    A brain reacts, chains dissolve from a synapse,
    a heart tightens then relaxes.

    Light dissipates, more flashing, a thought floats, convulsing,
    lost between blank spaces again.

      Though I am not sure about the deliberate use of the indefinite article 'a', I liked how the poem followed its own rhythm - rather like a heartbeat, its physicality juxtaposed against the agitated futile flutter of the nervous system. There was only one line I didn't enjoy:

    bound by a coma no more

    though it rolls wonderfully on my tongue, the 'no more' fell flat. Other than that, I liked it, and the deliberate detached manner.

      It gives me a sense of trasgedy about loss of consciousness. But then I wondered if it is about life itself being a strange flash of consciousness ...

    I kind of don't get much out of verse which merely describes a scene or process; because I want to know also about the observer! However, people tell me that is a matter of taste. Well, this poem uses free verse to achieve a vivid and concise description, and I did get a generic emotional reaction from it (tragedy).

    I'm enjoying reading your poetry.
