Interesting, I like it. A rich page to start from. Peter Pegnall did a short series that fits in here, if the link works.

Poems suggested by phrases from Scott Fitzgerald's 'Tender is the Night'

A Scherzo of Colour

Bougainvillea against a plaster wail,
pink lips parted in desire;
a pool of blood in the doorway.

Lap it all up.

If you prefer black and white,
a touch of evil -
fly a dark kite
hieroglyph of agony.

Season of Missed Chances, 2009

Bowie Burroughs et al. There is an angry or maybe blase approach here, maybe... I like it. Tommy
