Father's Veil

written by: Corey Brockington


Unworldly? Shirley oblivious in lighthouse
Her venture is without coma, oh, sleepless
Shirley fishing hair at unrest
Unknowingly? Shirley (she is-)
Not hardly period at her curious, oh,
Ms. delirious trapped like Rapunzel
redundant? Shirley spooling her strand, Casting
Her lock into worldly expanse—A

double dense entendre—An oceanic drift
Of knots and slips.


Her line “to live freely” (she was-). This age:
Shirley sinks her tangle of breach into oceanic pretense, Loosing
Her oblivion at grifts
Of doubt, reaping as the catch of split
the beginning...

Corey Brockington

Corey Brockington begins telling lyrical stories as a songwriter from New York. He becomes survivor of tragedies, lover of change, and poetic storywriter. The Walt Whitman Birthplace Association and HSBC award his poetry anthology while he attends college in search for inner voice. At twenty-nine years old, Corey’s poetic tales transcend his lyrical rhythms into words painted. Subsequently, also know as Brock, he was published in a reflexive collection entitled Yearnings, and is currently orchestrating his first novel. Parallelistic Inker compiles of present and past during his daily commute, whereas he transcribes multi-person viewpoints, nearby shores and skyscrapers for contrast.
