Usually So by AngelaNorthen Usually So by AngelaNorthen

USUALLY SO

Every man is entitled to love,
but what with jobs,
incomes,
and other such things,
the heart’s core grows harder
from day to day.
The heart wears a body,
the body—a shirt.
But even that’s not enough!
Someone—
the idiot!—
inflicted shirt cuffs
and poured starch on the chest.
Aging, people suddenly realize it.
Women smear on makeup.
Men swing their arms like windmills following Müller’s exercise system.
But it’s too late.
The skin multiplies with wrinkles.
Love will flower,
and flower –
and then wither and shrink.

Vladimir Majakovskij

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-10-04
There's an impressive textural depth within Usually So by *AngelaNorthen, an intricate composition with a haunting narrative.

that is very cool
reminds me

misty lost feeling
secluded and off the beaten track
come across this and you stop and stare
look over the edge
and wonder what you might see
something new
maybe something scary
or maybe just more of the same loneliness
a far cry away from the normal
a nice retreat you have found

The work brought that prose forth quite easily.
thanks for the writing inspiration

and this is real nice...thank you

Giacomo Leopardi
Always dear to me was this solitary hill
and this hedge, which, from so many parts
of the far horizon, the sight excludes.
But sitting and gazing endless
spaces beyond it, and inhuman
silences, and the deepest quiet,
I fake myself in my thoughts; where almost
my heart scares. As the wind
I hear rustling through these trees, I, that
infinite silence, to this voice
keep comparing: and I feel the eternal,
the dead seasons, the present,
and living one, and the sound of her. So in this
immensity drown my own thoughts:
and sinking in this sea is sweet to me.

no doubts and since it was new to me as well as the poet
was interesting to run across
these lines say a lot
a bit of deconstructive line work
says what many try
thanks

i can say
this solitary hill
and this hedge,
of the far horizon,
the sight excludes.
gazing endless  paces beyond it,
the deepest quiet,
n my thoughts;
 As the wind
rustling through these trees,
that
infinite silence,
feel the eternal,
the dead seasons,
the present,
the sound of her.
my own thoughts:
and sinking in this sea
