For those who are not familiar with the poetry of the Krazhdj, you may have an important lesson about Curiosity in your future. The Krazhdj are an alien race whose most profound thoughts are expressed in the Great Poems. Since humans cannot speak their language, translation devices struggle to encapsulate Krazhdji nuances and concepts into English. The recitation of these poems has been known to peel walls off of paint, turn milk to tears, and remove unwanted cat hair (from the cat).
This poem is an excerpt from the upcoming novel, Blithering Genius, Book 2 of The Other Universes. Hey, I warned you.
“DESPONDENT IN DUALITY
FECUND SPRITES DANCE IN FUTILE SPIRALS
FEVERISH – DENYING THE ABSOLUTE
EVISCERATED BY STARLIGHT
OBLITERATED IN ABSENTIA
SPLATTERED EXPECTATIONS AND
DECIMATED DREAMS FORGE THE VISION
THAT IS ART.”
