Poetry Showcase: Jeremy Limn (March 2023)

Poem 1

We wonder in shadows
of previous lovers.

and the sun drenches our
shadow with memories of
Bruce Springsteen.

And you won't forget me.
And I won't forget the way
you loved me nor will I
forget the way I loved myself.

Poem 2

Subterranean sheets of melody 
hang around your neck 
I can only see it 
nobody else can
and there is a moonbeam
in between us
in between lost memories  
from Nagasaki 
I hold its goodness in my
green tweed jacket's pocket 
with a lapel shaped like
your lips 
I feel it alive 
do you?

Poem 3

A deluge of Bob Dylan as
The next Pope of mankind
And it's a cold February day
and lyrics come when I need
them the most a maxim tied
to my fat thighs and God needs
me, I don't need you, 
and stitched to my neck is you
a straitjacket dipped in aconite 
of hemlock an eclipse of you
and a blue neon corduroy Steinway piano 
bloodshot and alive

Poem 4

I watch my aphorisms like
broken vessels of an unprecedented 
grace I fall into this mire and 
I want to be awake 
but I've blended myself into 
aghast fumes from your displeasure
I won't awaken again 

Poem 5

November is too late
and November was my
new tune 
and my tempest doesn't roar
and I can't find Babylon 
my sweet vagabond is supports 
my misery
November is too late it's a dislocating
my poesia 
my uncelebrated beautiful
