Unchoreographed Ballet by DC deWinter - Twist in Time Literary Magazine
Trapped in the stickyglue of timelessness,days fly by untasted as I dance a slow adagioin the cellar of my imagination, a devout acolytewaiting for something, anything to happen. Days fly by untasted as I dance a slow adagio in the cellar.I weave in and out between boxes packed full of other lives,waiting for something, anything to happen.Sometimes I sing; sometimes I close my eyes and think of bullets. I weave in and out between boxes packed full of other lives;I’m a prisoner of fading memories that whimper as they die.Sometimes I sing; sometimes I close my eyes and think of bulletswhizzing through the empty spaces of my life. I’m a prisoner of fading memories that whimper as they diein the cellar of my imagination, a devout acolytewhizzing through the empty spaces of my life,trapped in the stickyglue of timelessness… ____________________________________________________________ RC deWinter’s poetry is anthologized in New York City Haiku (NY Times, 2017), Uno: A Poetry Anthology (Verian Thomas, 2002), in print in 2River View, Meat For Tea: The Valley Review, From Whispers to Roars, borrowed solace, Pink Panther, Another Sun,Down in the Dirt and featured in numerous online journals.
