‘Edenbray in Exile’

A Retrospective Anthology of Poetry, Articles and Essays

‘Latrice, He Said ~ I Wanna’ Be Bob Dylan’

…   …    …


The night has tumbling skies

As auburn red as Lilly’s gorgeous hair

So barren the awful sentiment that hits

And harms two fateful twins bonded

Pearls and advantaged peoples

Share the amalgam of constraint

Twisted, warm and fatalled by

The erroneous pressure of form

Belittled, bedraggled, frustrated

Where are the moments of extremity

That elude our wildest aspirations

Or formulate the dawn of our preposition?


Bella, Tarim, Fuchsia and Madre

So simply contented are opposed

By the context of their unborn attenuations

Or the altruism of their conformity

So ultimately translated and bereft

From the endeavour of our collusion

Perfectly entwined, assimilated and adored

Translated for a later generation

Nothing so noble as to separate this moment

Or call vacant the felony of new certainty

Where only migrant peoples occur

Or the trials of aptitude fade incandescent

Authors Note: I promised to provide as comprehensive and varied an Anthology in this 2nd Retrospective of Edenbray’s work.

In this piece we are invited to participate in an ode of celebration for two literary stiles as diverse as time and circumstance MIGHT divide them. Two literary masters and troubadours of totally separate ages and experience who told tales for audiences for one and the same reason. My sincere belief is that Shakespeare and Dylan would share a mutual respect and admiration for each others work and then Counting Crows put the idea in my head from another lyrical piece of their own that was a song and then Edenbray penned it out, fleshed it out. You dig ?! …                                                        ~ edenbraytoday
