What does burning poetry smell like?

2 posts in this topic

I sat to think

and could not

but in partial bursts

that I could barely

hold on to.

I received an image.

It made its impression

in my mind

and lasted for three seconds.

I wrote it as a poem,

as the inside of paper folded,

before it's turned to chaff.

I wonder by its whiff

if one could understand.

Brevity and depth.

Reading it is a journey where you go though some ground and end up at a place you were not at the beginning.

The first stanza very much comes to you in partial bursts, the second is like an image and can be describe with the word "precision", the third is very sweet poetry, and the final ties it all up in surrealism.
