One look disturbs, or: In time, our eyes close

Poetry Partners #100

An ‘American Sentence’ by Tea Solon of ‘Butung Is Layp’

One look disturbs heartbeats culled eons ago, beloved brevity.

A ‘Crystalline’ by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

In time, our eyes close; our hearts slow,
attuned again to ancient tongues.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)
