I, fevered ocean heroine wearing a black umbrella
crowning for desire drowning in seagull shelled feathers
of delicious man, his lip of night scented a dark liquid perfume
under my eyes, silver scored white lines mouth-pinched in truth
cocaine smoked steel sky, I want for brewing a blue-black veined itch
a god to heal my naked wake prisoner I am, for a hard growl marble
in his moist wild laugh iced eye under the skin
black angel white angel
of death none will remember
the melodious Paul @ d'Verse Poets Pub hosts an interesting challenge: Contrapuntal Poetry
in essence: "Contrapuntal music is composed of multiple melodies that are relatively independent that are sounded together. In the poetic world, contrapuntal poems are poems that intertwine two (or more) separate poems into a single composition."
Read the poem on the left, independently. Repeat for the poem on the right. Then read the lines straight across, as if there is no gap between the two.
1+1 = 3
