Subliminal Poetry

In everything there is poetry. It can be found in the day-to-day things and in the irregularities of life. But below the recognizable experiences lie things that speak to a deeper part of ourselves. Subliminal Poetry is the observation of the world around us that speaks to that subconscious mind, poetry that delves deep into our hidden world and feeds our innermost being.

“Collage of Influence” is K.S. Lapham’s works centered around this concept revealing what is beneath the surface and venturing into the subconscious mind.

Crystal bell of timeless composition.

Your contemporary rhetoric is singularly

Provocative in its capabilities to speak

The voice of the spirit.

This factor in

My opinion is what lends to your work

The independence of any era

That it all leads

To living and dying

Open Doors

Circulating visions

You are everywhere


But not wordless

Energy becomes a tell
