Poetics


I look for the poetics,
I'm not sure what they are,
or where, still...

are they colours, places,
slanting pieces of shadow,

energy, other lives burning
up in front of me,

I feel the inner fire,
always burning out,

then at some point,
when I can't take it anymore,

returning me,
back to that place,

alright!

you need to get a big word
out - yeah...

or re-emerge,

well strap
me to a chair,

there's nothing more menacing,
than that the whole thing
may be beyond us,

and that existence is nothing
more than thermodynamics,

and so somebody as dumb,
has to make a break for words,

so word meaning, should I die of you?

never to know very much,
until I get beyond this idea,

that the nobody within is more
precious, than the somebody you
are pretending to be...

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
