Stranglehold – Over the Rainbow

over the rainbow

This is Part 4 of poetry issues #23. The poem is "Stranglehold" and the visual artwork is "Over the Rainbow". "Stranglehold" was written a few weeks ago (while "Over the Rainbow" was created even earlier). I find it strange how it reverberates with the events that, when it was written, belonged to the future. A lot has been said about the prophetic character of poetry, but I don't think that this is the right quality to attach to it. I'd prefer to put it as "(also) dealing with the constants of life".

This Part is preceded by Parts 1, 2, and 3. The fifth and final part of the issue will follow next week.
