treehouse noises by Neon Glittery
Neon Glittery climbs down from the treetops to explain the noises. Sound is everywhere: from the rustling of leaves, the swaying of trees, and most importantly the accusatory stares from angry squirrels. What Neon Glittery creates is more than a simple chapbook; it is a piece of art. Every page is painstakingly put together. Many are advised not to judge a book by its cover however ‘treehouse noises’ hand-sewed, tactile cover is a good indication of the pictures contained within. Alongside the poems are the glorious pictures. The pictures are a tad bit tricky to describe.
Mimosa leaves belong to the Dr. Seuss tree. Neon shows how a mimosa, a delicious alcoholic beverage can relate to the wild creations of Dr. Seuss. One sees beyond the gaudy colors of Dr. Seuss and experiences the deeper knowledge inherent in Dr. Seuss’s world as one grows old. It is a wonderful thing to grow and find new meaning in the old. Earth Days makes up these different parts, from the streams to estuaries.
Parts of the poems are too fragile to be held together in normal ways. Here Neon lets a light breeze blow away the poem. Even dreams fall out, leaving only consonants in their wake. Light sickles cut the day away. Golden hour is harvested each and every day. Many miss it but some bird frolicking in a summer puddle witnesses it firsthand.
A little lion rampaging shows the combination of cute and scary. ‘RAWR’ is split up into two separate segments. The ‘R’s are dropped revealing the sweetness, the cuteness with a simple syllable of ‘AW’. Yes this soul resides on the sleeve, like the heart. Next to it is an elongated picture of a lion more sweetly than scarily.
The way Neon has her boyfriend look at her while kissing is different. Usually people close their eyes. He refuses to do this basic normal response. Rather he looks her right in the eyes. She remembers his hazel colored eyes this way. From his face she sees sunlight meadows. Neon sees inside his mind to look at his happy thoughts. These radiate from the eyes.
What Neon Glittery’s poems show is a sense of child-like wonder mixed with the practice and wisdom that comes with being an adult. Much of Neon’s output, while seemingly child-friendly in nature, contains the ‘youth without youth’ appeal. For these are complicated emotions made simple only through multiple tries. Neon creates art for both children and adults. There is something utterly bizarre, fantastic and moving about Neon’s peculiar output of work.
