Armistice


just as smudge on teeth 
a Black with blue eye 
condemned to fuzz on peach.

How is it that you always get to post first? ;-)

Really - so inconsequential. Short but deeply buried meaning today. I took it that in any world this trait was so irrelevant that it became inconsequential or perhaps unaccepted. Perhaps I didn't go deep enough?

Yes my friend you do look way beyond the blue eyes or the fuzz. I believe it is what makes you a good writer is the look beyond
will you please help make the world see that as well???
Love and hugs

Sorry Anthony, I read this many times but simply don't understand it. I know that poetry is multi layered and like music, means different things to different people, but I'm not 'getting' anything. Sorry!

I believe this is about the acceptance of bi-racial or multi-racial people. Let me know if I'm on the right track. Intriguing write.

It's great to see you write short verse Anthony. I interpret your poem to signify the idea of association between certain things. For example, teeth can have smudge on them, Black, meaning people, can have a blue eye, fuzz can be associated with a peach. The poem is about association; however someone chooses to do so. I love this powerfully little poem.

I like what you have to say here. You did it quite well in so few words

I don't think it's the fact that three short lines don't necessarily lend themselves to a simple understanding. I believe the power in these lines is that they compel everyone who reads them to parse their own meaning, search their own knowledge and experience for an answer. That's ART, brother,

mrs mediocrity said...

Short but sweet - and packing the punch of much longer works.

Claudia said...

kavisionz said...

Says a lot in three lines, and I needed three reads and one examination of the comments section to realize I may have got the right interpretation! Beautiful :)
