The Zebra (Zebra Poem by Cornish Poet Clive Blake) Visoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry

An optical illusion
That tricks your sight,
Not colour, not HD ready,
But just in black and white.

An African sales success,
Of great pride it’s the source,
Cleverly marketed as …
A bar-coded horse.


-----------------------------------------------------------
The Zebra:
'The Zebra' ... an iconic beast if ever there was one. An optical illusion on legs, the stealth grazer of the plains. The zebra holds a special place in peoples hearts, especially lion's!


--------------------------------------------------------------
This 'visoem' is titled "The Zebra” (Zebra Poem by Cornish Poet Clive Blake) Visoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry,
from a collaborative project between Clive Blake and Adrian Blake. The production of another book being the final aim.

I describe Visoetry as illustrative visual poetry other than Phoetry. I came up with the Visoetry concept in 2005. Visoetry can also be described as Visual Poetry and loosely described as Concrete Poetry.

The poetry is by Cornish Poet Clive Blake cliveblake.deviantart.com/

Illustrations by Adrian Blake hairycheesecake.deviantart.com…
of DA *hairycheesecake fame. Adrian Blake is a brilliant photographer, graphic designer and illustrator, in his own right, but don’t take my word for it, visit his site and see for yourself (I am slightly biased, I’m his Dad)!

I'm sorry you don't get it but the concept is very simple ...
A zebra looks very much like a horse with a huge bar code painted on it ...
(Well it does with a certain amount of poetic licence involved!) ...
I can't really explain it much more than that ... and ...
It is something that you either 'get' or you'don't get' and there is probably no middle ground ...
So if you 'don't get' it, don't worry about it, you are probably not alone ...
:) :)
