1 Poem by Vernon Frazer

Toning Down the Noise of Light

venomous rhythms
target aperture needles parking
percussion sludge

tent warnings
capture drudgery’s rapture dance
tongued until

a vociferous light instills the silent fire

crackling hallucination vents
a whirlpool alliance salesman
ventures a doggerel epithet

no seed of understanding left brighter

than writhing sun rays
glancing off their own reflections
no threat to a railing mirror

toxin glamour peels
its skin, a writhing lap dance

or payday to premature closure

any dance left living
darkens, the quirky wheedle
grudgingly reproved

the silent impulse dimmed to darkness
