Getting Feedback 2008

           Getting Feedback

It would be nice

Before I die,

If I got feedback.

I don’t know why –

Sophomoric vanity?

Although, I’d hope,

It’s open to more noble reasons

For some confirmation

That the ‘alster’*Stand for Truth

Expressed through poetry.

Free Form 2008

          Free Form

Free form, no,

I reject it.

In a frame, yes,

I accept it.

Chaos-free,

Invisible,

Where choice is no-choice

Possibly the real creativity.

Indifference on an inner frame

Where choice picked from the air

Can chase the music,

Face the music,

Make the music

Formed by muses.

Bravos To Those 2009

        Bravos To Those

You have no metaphors,

Yet you depict…

Small intellect,

Yet analyze, poeticize;

The need

To put the pen to pad

Impossible to dodge. You dare

To bare your superficiality

To coming generations,

Any generation,

For your need to generate

Is greater than…the what?

God knows.

Bravos!

Accessibility 2009

        Accessibility

 A bad? A good?

Obscure? Transparent?

I have work I cannot comprehend

Months after its been written.

I meant what?

If, in your hand

The rhythm in your head

Enables passing from four/four

To five/o r seven/,

– good for you!

But entering upon

A work without obstructions,

Is a good thing too.

Endlessly Creative II 2008

        Endlessly Creative II

I write for the inner man.

I write for the outer man –

The vain man, the me man.

Like Leonardo, I see landscapes,

Cityscapes, faces that escape

From pebbles that I pluck

Each time I get the post.

Creation knows no limits.

Crazy faces in the spaces,

Their limits are my limits

And my limitations theirs.

There was no skyline

When da Vinci peered at ceiling cracks.

What city

Did he see

Interpreting the line and plane?

The country? town?

Even he, da Vinci had a curtain,

And because creation is subjective,

Subject world formed in the mind,

I can approach my inner, outer, vain –

My me man

Seeing faces new, unknown,

Un-specied and unnamed.

As many as are pebbles

They’ll be born.

Eccentric II 2008

        Eccentric II

Eccentric follows fantasy,

Puts trends aside,

The threads of impulse

Finding rhythms

Which elude the rest.

With love of labor his,

He loves the fertile in himself,

Sees the fertile in a businessman, a calf.

Inventive,

Curious in others’ eyes,

Axis of support off center

But supported nonetheless,

He’s fostering a foster in himself,

Building, liberating.

The eccentric does it best

By being,

With and through the deviating axis

[Of support].

Eccentric 2008

       Eccentric

The eccentric follows fantasy,

Puts trends aside,

The threads of impulse

Finding rhythms

Which elude the others.

The eccentric makes

A love of labor,

Loving progress in the other,

Loving interest in the others,

Loving everything that’s fertile,

That’s inventive,

That shows promise.

Fostering the foster,

Building up and liberating,

The eccentric does it best

By being.
