NaPoWriMo 12 -Formulae

Possibly the strangest poem I have written – prompted by the Napowrimo challenge for today – Today, I challenge you to write your own index poem. You could start with found language from an actual index, or you could invent an index. Happy writing! Well I pulled a randm book from the bookshelf and it was Keywords for the Crowley’s tarot … probably why it sounds like an invocation of sorts.


Aeons of Alchemy, dissolve
Beasts of blue, evolve
Central to chaos, revolve

Death’s dominion regained
Eye of the empress remained
Failure of fortune attained

Grail of greatness resplendent
Hermit’s heart attendant
Indolence impedes independence

Joker of justice busted
Kundalini’s King flustered
Lust for Lilith mustered

Magus of Mercury insurgent
Noted numbers convergent
Oppression of order emergence

Path to power, appealing
Quintessence quickening, sealing
Rider reversed revealing

Scarab’s secret subsiding
Tower of temperance providing
Universal union residing

Virginal valour victorious
Whore of worry laborious
Yod yearns for Zain, vainglorious
