  1. Joseph Cornell and Visual Poetry

    The artist, Joseph Cornell, has long been a favorite of poets... His inspirations include the opera, ballet, Mallarme, Poe, fairy-tales, Nerval, Verlaine, Mozart, DeQuincy, Dickenson, etc... He constructed images/objects out of fragments of imagery, texts, and music... creating something magical out of the bric-a-brac of the bibliophile's sanctuary:

  2. Lovers as Warriors

    Lovers as Warriors

    You must not think I am unromantic
    because I refuse to spend my day
    writing sad songs about heart break
    and flooding rains of tears.

    You must not think I am unromantic
    because I do not see the reason why
    I should throw myself at the feet

    ...Heart of stone...
    ...stone cold eyes...
    ...eyes with intent...
    ...intent to destroy...

    ...remind her of that night...
    ...night that haunts...
    ...hanuts her dreams...
    ...dreams filled with screaming...
    ...screaming ...

    Gorgeous George and Sneaky Pete.

    Gorgeous George has three wives. He reckons he deserves them, for he really is the most georgous pheasant you've ever seen. He lives in our seven acre meadow, and as it is lambing time I see him and his wives three times a day as I do the rounds. There is nothing he likes better than to show off his golden feathers in the morning sun, to rattle his wings and greet the new day by crowing like a creaky gate.

  5. In Coffee Veritas



    I dread having to have found the words for this. I wanna do other things. I wanna go to places. I wanna write about other things—miserable country travels, inferior accommodations in some substandard shelter (calling it an inn would be too charming), wearying and exhausting bus rides where you find yourself all sticky ...
