Flamenco - Poem by Louis Borgo

The forest that sign wood sign of death
Would you like to hear more
Rig among a tree
Laugh among a breeze take it to colder
Run of eyes no tear drop bleed no mind
Would like to hear more
Loose of the wind bridge no hungry
The darkness warm the heat
And heat stain the blood
Am I brand it or has pack risen
To success would be to hear more
And thunder break a tree
What was the first words assigned
This heat of passion care care light from heaven
Dear Lord
What is for last dance
Come inside my love
I say let flame burn on.

    The poem (?) does not make any head or tail with such a disjointed narrative. Why so Louis? (Report)Reply

    A little of bit of experimental writing, which is always a difficult task to comment on without a larger context to go on. My very first, initial impression after reading this was it that may be a cut-up. It has the fast, unexpected jumps in syntax, like quick edits in a movie, that are common with cut-ups. Plus there are some repeating themes that keep it within a topic to some degree, always reeling the reader back into the poem instead off on some dreamy un- or de-centered excursion of sound or pure non-sense. The poem ties itself to nature and to humanity, and ties nature and humanity to each other, but not according to strict logic or reason. It is more an interaction on equal terms, or terms that are interpreted primarily through human feeling-tones and emotion. The title references a traditional Spanish art form that incorporates song and dance with guitar. A form that has become much more codified with time and very much evokes a certain hot-blooded passion that comes through in the closing lines and so helps close the poem in around itself. I like the poem very much, for its organic feel with the recurring wind, weather and trees. And yet that organic world is captured, cut and forced within a language outside itself which doesn't operate to convey more than the pure sound and rhythm of itself. The language is not a sign pointing at the wind, weather and trees, it is the rush of warm blood in a dance with those elements which it is not really separate from. At least that's what's coming to me from my initial encounter. It's a rich poem which I may see differently next time, and in my world that makes it all the better. (Report)Reply
