“Enter the shadow realms of the creative imagination. Embrace the logic of surrealism, of waking dreams, of hallucination. Sing the poem songs of delusion, pain, struggle, suffering, desire, exultation. Turn back the cover, crawl into BEFORE THE BRIDGES FELL, and enjoy the brilliant poetry of David L O’Nan.”

Some poems from Merritt Waldon
Couches on Fire
Blind to street names, they drink, love & sleep Killing time, mending silence & loneliness the irresistible urge to feel another's skin Couches on fire with undiluted dreams Eyes meet, music plays loudly As she opens a mason jar full of memories Haunted with beer breath kisses & nude 3 a.m.'s, where minds idling Become secret eternities Mystic Candle Light High pitched droning unfolding in to words Toes drag across beige shag carpet A cigarette burns in an ash tray where Prophesy mingles up from finger into The blue smoke Dreams & vision warm themselves Next to the mystic candle light Nowhere awakens burgeoning With deep song Transcendent Eye Meditation Sun slow cloud filled sky Blue field golden pages Dug out a cathedral like cosmos Prophetic blue eyes Stars emanating Soaking in & consuming all Projective realities Transcendent eye Formulating the song of ages While imitating an Elder tree Reaching for the sun Sheltering the lost children Of the future Hymn to Sleep Narcoleptic eyes burn Air dehydrated against fluorescent light Necromantic power naps Retrieving bulk messages Written beneath our tongues Perpetual Dream Machine (for Robert Desnos) Troubling future now A “woke” generation Lost w/o true knowledge Lost w/o robert desnos & his perpetual dream Machine Bio: merritt waldon 47 year old poet from/lives southern indiana has been in quite a few publications has books by cajun mutt press Oracles from a strange fire co authored by Ron Whitehead, second Pistol City Blues published by Deadmans Press Ink.
