is being radically reworked
is two serial poems
"The secret of why we first took to our feet" (mythopoetics, image-centred, wisdom tradition)
"As you where" (google-sculpting, found texts, sound-centred, dense, irony )
Alien Memory Machine is also taking a different direction after writing a David Lynch poem
that's perhaps the third section . . .
poems for film
but not sure
Hm . . .
framing. I am learning about framing. Just as poetry used rhyme and meter to keep it memorable in the oral tradition the idea the concept the frame can be keep it memorable.
so a book project
an obsessive concern
I like poems that can stand on their own feet
but like even more a book that frames the poems
don't like the book of random scattered poems
the drive for clarity and unity and wholeness but not without first getting damn messy!!!
does the desire for order have a stronger pull for artist minded folk (poets and others) than non-artist minded thinkers???
what is an artist minded thinker?
Perhaps a willingness to enter new environments and pulls of understanding
an unhappiness with the given pre-fabricated
so yeah, for me that questioning and re-creating takes place in language art (i.e. poetry)
poetry is not really what is taught for exams
is not GCSE or A levels or BA or MA or PhD
is not not
or not so simply
depends how you re-order it
I like to think of my writing as shuffling
I just re-order the information
and what about tone?
well irony and playful seriousness seems to be the order of the day
I worry about the order of the day but i think it has to do with a mistrust of our manipulated emotions
So sincerity is questioned
and humor is a damn good lubricant
just look at the good Greeks
