For anyone interested, some of my poetry can be found on my blog.
WildWithWords: This is a very dark poem I wrote about 30 years after settling aside the unusual and enticing title for future use. The title originates from an instrumental tune by 70s German techno band Tangerine Dream called “Mysterious Semblance at the Strand of Nightmares”. It appears on their 1974 LP “Phaedra”. Basically the poem is about the nightmares of a serial killer who is haunted each and every night by the ghoulish faces of his 14 victims.
One confusing reference probably needs explaining. Hopefully this will prove a light bulb moment for many.
The confusing second and third stanzas relate to the so-called “Stargate Sequence” at the very end of director Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 Sci-fi masterpiece “2001 – A Space Odyssey”. This nine-minute iconic film sequence is a stunning montage of hallucinogenic colors and scenes which flow past your eyes like liquid fire opal against a black background (the “black corridor”). I call this streaming LSD trip-like experience the “2001 Kubrick colors” which is not the number of colors, but instead references the movie title.

NaDz _: You've captured my attention with this poem about nature. Love the way it woven together so well especially (which is my favorite line of this poem) 'a scar of debris spray'.....love it!
