Cubist Poetry

A few days ago I wrote a post on Facebook mentioning cubist poetry. Two poets, Chris McQueeney and Regina Puckett, left comments with astonishing poems.


Like a Rubik’s cube
Your visage is square
Off center
All angles and corners

A fabulous face painted flat and outlined
A perfect banquet of color in which to dine
Each tinted circle and painted square
Begged for the world to stop and stare
A simple way of expressing beauty and art
Color sprayed onto canvas from the heart

blue lips laced
with caramel color
in the shade –
knotted beauty,
sipped from paper
cups as natural
