"Oh, how I dream of elaboratly decorated spleens..."
Life's a junkyard. Wanna play tag?
I frequent PnQ, but bounce poetry off this site for practice.
I love e e cummings, WCW, and Emily Dickinson.
I'd rather have mediocre music that no one knows than the same hits as everyone else.
I cheer for Ben and Jerry's during football season.
Here is my cheesy banter:
I love words. I love how they string together to make meaning, to influence, to compel... I love how a line can paint a picture so vivid in the imagination that it makes your breath catch in your chest, and you can't help but pause to soak up the colors in your mind's eye.
The goal of my poetry is not to build clearly defined boundries for meaning or human emotion. I write without thought, focusing on the flow, the structure, the cadence... In the end, sometimes the poems I create are rambling non-sequiturs, and I like them. I'd rather you read through a poem multiple times: ride it like a wave, then dive into it and unravel its meaning for you. Thats the point of it. Meaning is determined by you, the reader, not by the writer. If your interpretation of what I'm saying is opposite to my intent, then I think I've succeeded: it's a poem that can relate to you, to me, to anyone who reads it, in your own unique way.
The poems I love the most are as follows:
"anyone lived in a pretty how town" by e e cummings
"As imperceptibly as Grief" by Emily Dickinson
"Improvisation on Lines by Isaac the Blind" by Peter Cole
"The Little Life" by Barbara D. Holender
"Possum Crossing" by Nikki Giovanni
"Do Not Go Gentle Into that Good Night" by Dylan Thomas
"A Supermarket in California" by Allen Ginsberg
and everything by WCW.
