dVerse — Jacquline Hurlbert, Artist — fashioned friend

Content With My Delusions- J.Hurlbert


fashioned friend
astray from anguish
poisoned by passion,
etched with existentialism,
malaise from malevolence,
pained by paternalism,
notched by narcissism,
carved by charisma,
regressed from rejection
erased by exploitation
bruised by braying banter
degraded with dirty deeds

i leapt —










red puddle
clingy tar
pile of twigs

from blood and darkness,
a whispering shadow:

fear no more.”

pulling myself together
a few spare parts left
with them i fashioned a friend


Tonight is Linda’s first official host as part of the dVerse team.  Linda has asked us to create a poem that is inspired by one of the selected art pieces done by Jacquline Hurlbert.

Inspired by Jacquline Hurlbert’s artwork titled, “Content with my Delusions”
