A Zipper Poem? You Can't Handle a Zipper Poem (No More Jack Nicholson References After This Because You *Can't Handle* the Jack Nicholson References)

Zipper poem(s) from the Dan Harder larder.

I apologize right up front for the rows of periods I put in to make the relationships work, but Blogger refuses to accept simple spaces, so what can you do??


A (Not So) Simple Logic


searching the palpable
....................................................patterns
for patterns
....................................................for the love of God
for a rhythm
....................................................written in verse
that might possibly reveal
....................................................and intended to reveal
the logic
...................................................in an artist's work
or at least the will
....................................................the will
of a universe
...................................................and the simple
inscrutably complex
...................................................logic of a loving
and wildly violent


..................................................God

I don't know about the Jack Nicholson references, but I'm not quite sure how to read this. What I am coming up with is "...and the simple inscrutably complex logic of a loving and wildly violent God," which is an observation worthy of my great seminary professor Walter Brueggemann. Or as C.S. Lewis put it in the Chronicles of Narnia, "He is not a tame lion." Your poetry salon sounded like a wonderful evening. Cirque du Soleil indeed. Sorry I have been offline for awhile. Getting back to my blog, if I can remember how to log on.
