! ! ! ! Defining Insanity [are We Still In Same Conversation? ]

Rating: 3.1


Mental gratification …. Absent indulgence
or whatever be its final christening …
too abstract to subscribe to perimeters of abstraction
or accept authority
This tinge of madness
this aberration imparts clarity, impales reason.
Does it actually stop somewhere?
Can you contain it?
……Say in the vessel of verse as vassal of verse?
Ask yourself… for the only times I felt
free from the tether of skin
was in moments when
I embraced the transcendental…

Call it weirdness if you so choose
it’s the optimal contouring
of your concaves with convexes
of natures that elicits
cry of Alleluia/Eureka…… Alhamdulillah ….

Rehan, you parallel line you! Did you not think i could track you down? No new work? Whats the deal with that? I want you to know that i check your work out regularly, tho' i don't comment much, and i don't read many poems in general on PH.And the reason i read you regularly, with the very little time i have, is because you never ask, never plead, never beg. You write for you...you write for the right reasons. You could care less if you get 40 comments or 4 comments on a poem, so long as you read it...and say to yourself ''This is Good Work''....And you don't require 300 comments on 1 poem after e-mail blasting 1200 members in a 1 week period & bait them by spending 6 hours a day leaving the same generic comment on the poems of the 3oo victims of that e-mail blast, all of which say: THIS IS GREAT WORK...YOU ARE AWESOME...! (and they never even read the poem) And thats why i don't read & comment very much. I, as you, are not part of this Circle of Comments for Padded Stats. And i respect you & your work for that reason as well as the fact that your work is worth the read & has earned respect! You take care, my friend...As usual the above work is another Hyder Pen-Gem!

'this aberration imparts clarity, impales reason.' My, how this line sticks with me. I agree, 'impales reason' is such a perfect description. Always, always a pleasure reading your stuff.

I'm relatively certain this is my favorite of yours. Clarity is torture, really - and 'impales reason' is dead on. There's a fistful of the sky in this. It really is quite wonderful. If this be madness, Rehan - I'm buying tickets and hopping a plane to Bedlam. Christine
