Colin James | The Maniacal Coolies Would Dress Sagaciously

Colin James | The Maniacal Coolies Would Dress Sagaciously

Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s short story, Typhoon.

 

Gray and green are serpentine colors.
Blasts of gales below deck while
outside the storm disputes itself.
The waves dot their eyes like exemplaryists.
Land is over there somewhere.
Stow your anger management course,
cargo of human metonymy.
Race, class, sex, race.
Partake of the edifices but know,
those with missing parts regrettably,
won’t be so much as
financially compensated.

Colin James has a couple of chapbooks of poetry published. Dreams Of The Really Annoying from Writing Knights Press and A Thoroughness Not Deprived of Absurdity from Piski’s Porch Press and a book of poems, Resisting Probability, from Sagging Meniscus Press.
