Dada Poetry The liminal

The image
The words

The art of evolution
wrought from a landscape
of defiant chaos
this wayward wisdom
at odds with the triumphing
vandalism of our mothballed truth

in this hopeful territory
of starry-eyed terror, risk
bruises the genuine conviction
and eager life treads past
the mauling gloom of virtuous narrative

here, dilemma scuttles
the deathly vessels of elusive safety
& escapes the stifling seductions
of unseaworthy compromise where flickers
escape in the almost unbearable message
this heart-thumping journey
not a battle, a reward

Nice, quite a work of art, let's revive the dadaist movement in the 21st century-M.A.N.
