a political welcome
of free speech
through
free speech;
and violin violent
violins
carcasses
of dissonance
I may be the nation!
try to hide
slip and slide
I'm out of here!
a cloud
light
and no one thinks of Ezra Pound.
I do I do
it's the truth truth truth
rude.
a modernist epic
sealed with
empty cages
empty bottles
and a dedication
a possum;
or hung
twice by his
heels
to be eaten
alive by
you or me or anyone
who likes italian
cuisine
drama
subjective as
opinions of those
who never
learnt
how to read or
write
let alone
to be a
poet
we're not yet finished
here
with various
critics who
enter a plea
"slow down
break break break
with a failed metaphor
- flow"
telephone wires
roads and
cars --- killing
empty streets full of
empty people
who rhyme
commit crimes
as an
empty metaphor for
style.
"je suis allé en france
et j'y ai trouvé l'art
du siècle."
synthesizing laughter
into physical
emotional
strain.
or write sonnets
attacking
a clear sky
no stars
no more
no more
break break
break
fearful of the future
fearful of contemporary
art;
some of the finest most
affective lines
with rhyme
or red red wine
let an old man rest
and rest yourself
fearful of what may come
time to speak your mind now
so write write write
it's not a science!
read carefully crafted lines
and throw yourself
away.
put the paper
to your
tongue
French kiss poetry
for lovers
for broken bones
put the paper
in your
mouth
and speak
your mind
for a new world
underground
look around;
is this the end
of modern art?
renaissance poems
for modern times-
broken rhymes on
crooked lines;
freiheit. the
price we had to
pay for it-
nous sommes des animaux sauvages!
freiheit. the
lives we had to
save for it;
and we speak our mind-
see logic in the eyes of
those that write a
stream of consciousness
words that rhyme
a column about my poetry
serious and solemn
with care and
dignity
three syllables of formality
a storm of words
brief statements of
humanity;
put the paper in your
mouth and speak your
mind.

I couldnt help but read this with a French Revolution (the third one) backdrop but perhaps it is because I equate you with France. Either way, great stuff as always, hope to come back and comment more when i have more time.

ah, those nights where you're not sure where you'll be the next hour. this wrapped me up in the same way. excited for the next moment, alive in the current.

lovely in your inimitable way

Anatomy Anatomy
Whale Blue Review

Park that car
Drop that phone
Sleep on the floor
Dream about me

read this, liked it. the french gives a nice taste. i however couldn't help but notice this consists largely of some of your past works pasted together. not that that's a bad thing, i just mean i could finish some of the lines in my head as i was reading them. so it might not have hit me as hard as it would to someone who's never read you before. seemed like stuff from different places, mais ouais, le dadaïsme. ¡ay!
still, i enjoyed it, brought back some things to my mind and stuff, i'm glad i read it. good to see you 'round, homes.
