Poetry: Inside Mausoleums I, II, III by Andrew Cyril MacDonald

Insides of mausoleums


Shapes shifted 
blue, turquoise endeavored 
to the favorite bar
 of constant devotion stumbled 
across them—
distant voices once here 
thereafter recollected, 
existent of a higher plane 
everybody all as one 
talked about it… 

some no man’s land 
sought for 
if retrogressive.


Type doors 
to faded sepulchers 
spectraled silhouettes align with, 
bundles what 
shape-shifts light makes 
ancestrally devoted
here in tombs 
windows encase them, 
cutting distance to climb of 
one’s paradise eternal 
a squared room 
dreamed alabaster 
contorts it.


Sky’s throw 
the distance that reaches, 
touches off-based 
thermal closed-sets in 
cold stocks we harvest 
at once for all if 
consequents upon our choices 
stand tall to accuse of 
some other’s vision what grace is 
stocked triumphant.

Bio: Andrew Cyril Macdonald considers the role of inter-subjectivity in poetic encounter. He celebrates the confrontations between self and Other and the challenges that occur in moments of injustice. He is founding editor of Version (9) Magazine, a poetry journal that implicates all things theoretic. You can find his words in such places as A Long Story Short, Blaze VOX, Cavity Magazine, Experiential-Experimental Literature, Fevers of the Mind, Green Ink Poetry, Lothlorien, Nauseated Drive, Otoliths, Synchronized Chaos, Unlikely Stories and more. When not writing he is busy caring for seven rescued cats and teaching a next generation of poets.
