A good medecine

A good medecine

Author: Lucía Dubarry

“This sunny afternoon I looked around… I have reached the end with tired arms. I feel lost on an endless path while I simulate oblivion. I could have done better, I can’t fail. Few understand me well, it’s like talking to a wall. I don’t know what’s wrong with me that I can’t go back. So much beating the bush, now I walk through the wounds. I know that I am nothing more than less. No one else could heal my pain. I simply¬†can not contain myself. I tried to laugh at it, cover it with lies. I tried to laugh at it hiding the tears in my eyes because deep in my heart there is no place to cry. How can I forget? I will never forget you, you left me behind the wailing wall. I’m in the last chance to lose control. I’m alone here, sitting not knowing what to do. I must say that things got¬†more difficult, I know they did. I need to hang my mind on a noose until it dries from its problems. Everyone knows that there is no way out. I play sad songs to feel better. Your love is like a bad medicine. A crystalline guardian God of guitars gave me a lake in heaven and he showed me a place with speakers … It was like a good medecine.” Luc√≠a Dubarry


Visual Poetry received for the International Call for Visual Poetry 2084 Imagined Futures (2023), whose slogan was: ‚ÄúImagine and send us your visual poetry creations from the future to our present. The time has come to occupy the future and allow your artistic vision to shape the world to come. Together we can transform dreams into reality.‚ÄĚ
The call was organized by Aura Poesía Visual (http://aurapoesiavisual.blogspot.com/?m=0). We thank Ana Verónica Suárez and OmarOmar.

Visual poetry is a form of experimental artistic expression that combines visual and verbal elements to transmit a message with the image predominating over the verbal. Unlike traditional poetry, words can appear superimposed, deformed or combined with images and graphic elements (typefaces, photographs, illustrations, etc.) to create a poetic experience that transcends written language and its literal meaning.

Note: given that some of the visual poems have been delivered without a title, from the editing area of 2084 Futures Imagined from the South, we decided to give them a possible title with the intention of equaling them to others, simultaneously helping to distinguish them.
