Poetry by Alan Catlin & A Brief Intermission

logo alt 3

Blake sunflowers

illuminate the brain:
rainbow visions

of bloated yesterdays,
gone tomorrows


White Rabbit

Down the rabbit
hole after Alice:

broken looking glass
shards reflecting light

that isn’t there


Negative Light

A broken prism
reflecting inward:

ultra-violet lamps
make everything



Season of the Witch

Lava light eyes,
pupils rising

and descending
in slow motion

floating in bright red
emulsions; brain dead

in the afternoon


Alan Catlin remembers when Tim Leary was the latest thing. It makes him feel like the Ancient of Days without the beard. His latest books are Beautiful Mutants, from Night Ballet Press, and Last Man Standing, from Lummox Press.
