Day fourteen poem: LexPoMo 2017

LexPoMo2017Today’s poem resulted from a poetry exercise in Wingbeats II (edited by Scott Wiggerman and David Meischen) using D.H. Lawrence’s poem “Twilight.” (View the original poem here – title discrepancy due to sources – The Complete Poems vs. New Poetry.)

Reblogged from the Lexington Poetry Month blog.

Twilight deranged

gone from day is sight
litter glimmers light

a veil of star, a single play
there forsaken have the children

lie like a waste has meant
day worldly that all by flittering

goes moth-blue moon and night
oozing stock scent

old mirth of children wanes
clamor and pallor in palimpsest

the west dips and swallows
out of earth comes darkness
