>A Mystery on the Coastal Waterway poetry tow truck #6-lean on me/sunday scribblings #253-story

>From a dune the Martians laid claim to,
the chronicles were written on the quiet call.
As they buried their feet in pyramids,
formulating mathematical configurations.

Meanwhile … down a tunnel,
the dark-haired girl who drank
from five silver chalices
had chosen to live in a slaughterhouse …
observing the madness of the gods.

She contacted an uprising for the western
American front to put a coup d’état in position,
where there once existed buildings
with barriers to protect from the hornets’ nest.
Maybe she could find out
who kicked it after all. 

process notes:
(a very drafty poem that needs some work)

I used these following titles to write this poem:

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest: Stieg larrson
Slaughterhouse-Five: Kurt Vonnegut
The Martian Chronicles: Ray Bradbury
All Quiet on the Western Front: Erich Maria Remargue
Dune: Frank Herbert
American Gods: Neil Gaiman
