CHRIS OLANDER, Poet/Teacher with California Poets in the Schools (CPITS) since 1984, blends performance techniques with spoken word to create an action art poetry: musical image phrasing to dramatize relative experiences—a poetry arising from oral and bard traditions: a sound poet exploring meanings and ideas in rhythm patterns.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Chris Olander Poems


Tonight it’s stir fry
  
alone
           chopping veggies

like we did
     before—
thinking of you
     gone
the knife’s edge
     sharp
sexy, the way you split
     snarly---
then cut my finger
     Bad!
The one you loved
     wet
in your pleasure’s
     appetite!
The onion was too much!
     No
I didn’t cry
     but

the juice in the slit
     stings
          like Hell!

 



Physics Erotica

In our bed’s physics:
     the garden’s dark red roses
          perfume crescent moon-----

In the valley oaks
     Leo stars flickering flames:
          physical music-----

A breeze quickens leaves---
     the galaxy swirls its milk
          into universe-----
