Best Poem of Stewart McKenzie

Rtfm 08 Planck Verse

When poetic compression of meaning
Passes a quantum threshold
(The Blanck Length?)
Ambiguities arise.
The soundcolors and rhythms of words
Present alternative meanings.
Punza bound.
Assonance and dissonance intervene.
Group memories resonate
Variegating meaningspace.

Meaning becomes a matter of probability
Of parallel possibilities in multiple dimensions.
Ordinary rules of communication
Do not apply at this level of compression.

Timesong 02 Now Then

By the time that you hear me,
I spoke in your past.
When I hear your reply,
You in mine.

The image you see of me left me -
How long ago?
Not long, but a while,
Unless light brings the moment.

[Hata Bildir]
