September Collage Poem: Merseyways

entry picture


Wonderful woman lost in her mirror,

worn subject of a Swiss dream

cobbled on the back

of the toilet door.


Tiny lights

observe their image

fragile; a subtle glance.


The river wild, the river loved, the river mild.

History, life, rivalry

my eyes were filled with tears

from the sight


to play by Petrarch's rules the Bard foreswore


swept away on a sea of tears

is that a dot in the distance

or somebody drowning in the river


hateful twins of driven steam compete


water water everywhere

and not a drop

to drink!

This Way

Words work this way
enraptured together this way
preserved always this way
collectively endorsed this way.

These collages are very interesting. The 'hodge-podge' effect of such disparate ideas is like reading a many-authored chapbook.
