Stopped Completely Before He Turned 21

..

Never
mind the silence.

He’s a genius, a
restless soul who still
astonishes the (m)asses
with significant ar(t)dent
sway.

Absinthe
makes the heart
grow fonder,
rounder,
more solidly there
(with dark brown hair.)

Never mind
the immediate amp
-(m)utation of his
muse, the explosion
of surrealism in his goatee.

His conscience
has been scientifically
grifted.

Caution when opening
the universe, y’all.

(Continents may have
shifted.)

    I love this!!!

    He died when he was in his thirties, but he did his poetry writing as a child and teen. That’s what “stopped at 21” means.

    I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this:
    “Absinthe
    makes the heart
    grow fo(u)nder” … You make me giddy, girl. (Ooh, “giddy girl” wants to be a poem title.)

    Now I’m thinking of this.
