alabaster immortality
une voleur honteux
slip of the tongue
in each saturated pore
spectrum rehearses its symphony

crooked whispers of a flute
a glimpse of blue infinitude
quiets the confines of los alamos
¿quién es él? eso piensa
en kaleidoscopes

paralysis in the peristalsis
jewel in the vitreous humor
phosphorescent anti-matter
until it watercolors
the poison of psyche

papillae the plagues
oxidizing ash and ember
a quivering effigy
splinters the moon
instinctually

the mirrored hand exhales
swept the epileptic ceiling
dissolving tendrils of mahogany
detached from the retina
unblemished

tranquil, the deception
immutable twilight
the film frame fades
captured in the mercury
from particles to reaction

09.April.06

"If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One ... I am become Death, the Shatterer of Worlds"

the plasticized quantum theory by ~freakoutsyndrome weaves an interesting study of a portrait, subtly extending the language barriers and capturing the right words to paint the image. Worth reading and coming back to. ( Featured by coshdaddy )

you are absolutely one hundred percent completely wrong, I am an artist I don't just copy and paste the works of others.

the only words that aren't mine are the quote at the bottom and the line une voleur honteux which is from a William S Burroughs book, hence the previous argument from one commentator who suggested I conjugate appropriately

This is fantastic. The images are so dark and heavy, and the way each one is presented separately (both through line breaks and the lack of punctuation) really make it feel like it's dissolving. Spectacular. Definitely favorited!

I wonder if you hadn't posted the A-Bomb image, if this would have had any deep meaning to those who commented? It is a powerful image that few words can describe, but you've done well to describe the sublime horror of it with yours.

Having met Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the B-29 Enola Gay that dropped the first bomb on Hiroshima, I have both the greatest respect for him as well as the the greatest awe for what was unleashed that day. For many who only see the end result in the terrible destruction of a Japanese city and not the base brutality of the Japanese and the events that led to this turning point in history, all words are lost.

To fully understand this event, one need only talk to a veteran of the war in the Pacific who faced the Japanese in combat or those whose misfortune it was to become a prisoner of the Japanese, to understand the overwhelming need there was to do this. We can regret the death, destruction and suffering of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but let no one ever question why this was done, only that it had to be done to end the madness that was WWII.

My grandmother was in Hiroshima when that bombing occurred, and the horrible scenes she witnessed would have been completely indescribable.

I once read an account she wrote (she's Japanese but previously worked as a translator), yet it was brief. Though, the images I could construct from what she described proved to be identical to what I saw re-created in the A-Bomb Museum in Hiroshima, it's terribly moving.

Even though she was there, experienced the horror, she still supports the same opinion as you. She believes that if the bombing had not taken place, then the "Japanese government would have fought until we were all dead."

Just thought I'd share. :)

Thank you Phillip. We have the luxury of hindsight to look at the Atomic Bomb and place judgment. War is such a horrible thing and WWII was no different. Your grandmother is a very courageous and intelligent person to realize that and see this tragic event in that perspective. It's a shame it ever had to come to something so horrific to end the war. I don't think it would have ended otherwise. The world changed that day, maybe for the better. I pray world never sees that kind destruction again.

I'm confused by the french lines. I'm not too much of a fan of this kind of poetry either. It's like stringing together a bunch of phrases that sound nice but aren't coherent when read as a whole. Congrats on the DD though.

:iconfreakoutsyndrome:

it isn't about being coherent
for me at least

une voleur honteux
and ¿quién es él?

are specific references

"subtly extending the language barriers "
i dont have any clue what you are talking about
please keep on mind that english is not my native language but i thought if it says "extending the language barriers" everybody should understand it and I can't- I mean as you can tell I am able to speak English but I really dont get what you are saying
so much about extending the language barriers :(

"I am become Death, the Shatterer of Worlds." Is that a quote from the Bhagavad Gita? ...Or perhaps by J. Robert Oppenheimer?

But, yes. Very fascinating type of poetry. I greatly admire and respect those who form words into art. Well done. :)
