'Question-Marked Purple Moment'


A poem by Oasis Thacker

Who constructed dams on my flowing fingers….
At the rear entry of a town….
A town called 'Question-Marked Purple Moment'?

Under the foot of a question mark,
At the center of the town square called 'Period'….
A person named 'Who' planted a tree called 'What'
-Like a large drowsy cloud-
During the period of 'When'

…….Has it grown yet?

'The Purple Period of Stone' …. 'TheTomb of Cleopatra?'
Within the commotions of her boiling sensuality….
In the shining lights of her bosom-bulbs…
How many battles were fought?
How many battles will be bought?
How many empires will be blown away by hot windstorms of her breath?
How many ships will sink…..
…….Before anchors of '?' engage?

Purple Cleopatra….
Purple serpents……
In a question-mark town Called 'Question-Marked Purple Moment?

In this town…..
Since how many light-years
The philosophers voluntarily poked their eyes….
With the nails of '?-mark' ?

Between two poles of '?-mark'
The victorious headless warriors celebrate.

Installing a net between two poles of '?-marks'
The victorious headless warriors play volleyball
With their own dissected heads!

And those unfortunate losers
Hang themselves
Making nooses of '?-Mark'

Headless humans….
Human-less homes….
Homeless streets …..
Street-less town……
A town called 'Question-Marked Purple Moment?

Which emperor colonized this town?

The endless road from the town square to the dubious rear entry of the town…
Which nomad pilgrims dug the first well of blue ink?
Which folklorist fetched the first pen of ink from the ink-well?

Page 2

At the rear entry of this town..
Which governments issued permits..
To fabricate trees?
As if they were building blocks……townships…….!!

Key of ? mark [] rotate idly in keyholes…….!!

O Princess!
Who will open the gate-gallows of this desolate castle?
Which of the seven princes, framed on walls,
Will jump for a rescue?
How will eunuch elephants of a circus,
Sheltered under secure shadows of tents,
Annihilate the gate-gallows?

The clowns
Use canes of ? mark
To entangle each other's feet!
They fall and make us laugh.
They fall and make each other laugh, cry……..
In the town-square
Of the town called… 'Question-Marked Purple Moment'

Arrows of ? marks,
Like boomerangs,
Turn around and strike Robin Hood himself…
At the rear entry of this town..
The Town called… 'Question-Marked Purple Moment'
