there’s this number 41378 that we came to know

with no apparent add-ons nor tricks to show.

you ooze with taboo

from head to toe.

Catharsis Momentary,

Bubble breaks.

the Yogi is breathless again:
 32
 
 
the right to never let her be lonely again
 33
with a name to her given
 34
rightfully, so verily:

pays-tree hangs from the chandelier

'fore tee-her-tea long years...

die-aye

reeks of passion
 45
pretty (you/i are/am)
 46
bad;
 47
forever involved, forever
 48
lame, wild and tame, thee.
 49
 
 
when all ellipses coincide...
 50
eagerly early
 51
for yet another
 52
session with the Lady with
 53
a pungent Heart.

bearable hugs -- they,

locked within:

hunney supine.

seasons'

fame fluctuates

in rainbow hues;

dreamy petals ride the wind

ever so lightly for lack of shelter,
 62
not needing it like the child in you.

blogger heaven inside purgatory... when will the fog burn off and the real poet shine?
 — bmikebauer

thanks, sir_I_clan.

mike, yeah i know, hehe.
but this set of blog-lines could work if read twice to, say,
an 8-min instrumental track which would compensate for
the discontinuity and lack of innate music in the words.

going through each of my old posts made me
realize how much i suck at poerty-writing.

it's so hard to write a poem.
: )
 — fractalcore

well, it's like, sometimes, reading the responses and the KIND of thing people write to get a response is like watching the kids in harry potter react to seeing jello for the first time.
 — bmikebauer

you may well be 33
but that does not give
you the right to say my name

or even class it as --..---//

Nice poem
Fact.
 — unknown

laying this upon an uneven terrain of some
instrumental sh*t i have been trying to finish
for 12 years now, allowed an illusory common
ground for the incoherent sections. the text, in
turn, added a whole new dimension to the music,
but it was more an instance of complementing the
text rather than the music, as the latter was the more
self-sufficient of the two.

: )
 — fractalcore

music always works as a river to carry down the barges and drift, and it's the trip that's important, isn't it? if you had it in you, you could visualize this as a dance performance and see your figures -- people and bricks -- moving against and with each other. it'd bring another dimension to your poetry and help you see what can't be done in words.
 — bmikebauer

completement.

silly boy.
but buoy
you make me laugh.
 — unknown

i actually see the sections flow seamlessly without the aid
of the instrumental track -- i wrote them in the first place
and i know the moves, shapes, colors, transitions involved
there.

a poem could be a private joke or secret handshake, among
other things. this one's a poem of poems which all point to
a single thing... a myriad voices coming from one poet.

this is way different from the different sources put together, though --
it is unique and a peace of heART on its own.

just making sure all sides of the argument are covered.
: )
 — fractalcore

Frac, you are eccentric and intriguing. I dig your style Dew'd.
"imps aorta ants--" --AND this is what makes it complete.
=)
 — mandolyn

a poem is always a play of the sounds of the words -- that's the 'music' part, and ephemeral and over is the mirage of content, the things we're supposedly talking about. but, they're there only to get the visual into the embryo so that a synesthetic harmony can form between body and mind. to get that, you have to be totally at one with body and mind when you write the poem. and, to get there, you have to be so fucked that you can't come up with a good comeback or prayer or slogan to keep you from wanting to die. the only way left is to rebuild the world sense by sense and make feeling.

you're setting some words to your inner soundtrack, and that's good for us, because it allows you to bend words to fit the flow, something which every poem must do.
 — bmikebauer

I think he wants to bum you
fact,
Run , run , Run scared
Hide, cower-

silly people
silly places
 — west-end

thanks, rubber mandy,
and unk, too.

mike, do you notice the areas where there's [subtle] cleaving?
those transition points are sometimes more than sonics could
handle. in a case like this, where uniquely significant events
crystallized in sporadic time-frames are made to coalesce into
a hybrid reality, one has really got to tame all of those individual
energy packets to the absolute zero level, as they are very
distracting to the author.

i can be oblivious to the ghosts in the box and let the hairy patter
enjoy his vroom broom ride, so...

he crashed straight into the volcano's crater and bent his spoon
while sipping the sulfur soup.

; )
 — fractalcore

ey, sir_west_I_end_clan.

how are things going from your wet, er west end?
; )
 — fractalcore

i mean, *distractive* to the author.

 — fractalcore

your basic form is pop-song from the fifties, turned 'ironic' in the 70's and then redeemed by punk. it's linear, tell the story of peggy sue, and strum along. but, there's a point when you stop relying on happy-face to control your parents and start finding the world's vibration. for some, it's going to be people on happy street, and for others it's going to be the bang against the wall. you've got this thing to do, and you've got something you want to say. they're just not coordinated yet.
 — bmikebauer

i summoned the ghosts to a hearing of this 8-minute fugue being
played by me and captured live on cam -- it's experimental and
the text is almost random. otherwise, i could've/would've written
a couplet, instead.

i'm not completely satisfied with it, but i'm happy enough with the
way it is now as a piece of writing. revisions are always open-ended,
anyhow.

the video is quite okay, too.
; )
 — fractalcore

like 10
dislike pathogenic
west end is my friend
he's in bed
Asked if he could
he can but baby steps.

This is not a-poem you know i know
do not get carried away
bye the compilation

ha.
silly fact
oppss i farted
 — west-end

'video' is about motion, and seeing one is to pretend you're there and with them, but it's an art in itself and the really intuitive film just makes you feel like jerking away and standing still and twitching. it's got sound and visual, but the visual controls how to hear the sound and the sound blurs the visual into some kind of cheeze dip... unknowable from any other kind of cheeze.

sitting on the floor and making happy face and sad face trains your parents to come to you or stay away, but some time or another you start arranging your world so that they respect your space... they see that it means something to you... that you've got an idea of 'you' and 'space' at all.

i am ready

not for cheese though

It's MandEE. Mr.
 — mandolyn

you know what 'touch' is, and 'smell', and you know that these things are real, but you think that whatever you do is outside of the senses? some rational thing which makes such sense that everyone's going to laugh and all...? they'd laugh anyway... they want to laugh. it wasn't the poem, it was because they let you say something at all.
 — bmikebauer

No mike
it is just about
the string's
 — sir_I_clan

the connections, but that's a mathematical thing, a rational dance played out more physically in basketball, where's there's supposed to be a 'winner'. there's none wanted, cause the games just get in the way of making the connections beyond 'stick it to me' and turn instead into 'where it starts'.
 — bmikebauer

ok
i won you lost
nothing is played
all is lost
 — unknown

you can be anything you want to be... they told us that. i'm going to win a marathon tomorrow and swim to china and write like henry james and ford maddox ford combined.

the thing is, i can't and don't even want to. what i can do is feel and work out my feelings into emotions for you, in my poems. and, i'm only going to write them when i have to, because poetry writing is like cutting your own heart out. you think that's fun, write a sonnet on what your mother thinks of you... whatever you think she thinks of you... can you do that? cause, you should only do that when you want to find out what you really think of her.
 — bmikebauer

i don't want to see myself in some beautiful movie i saw, sunsets and wine, i want to make my own movie of what's what, and not even show up in it, not even a cameo, cause the next film's going to be better.

This is fact's poem
An it's not bad

move over look sharpe
stand up get striaight


playing with a souvien
 — unknown

is it really a poem? you do this how you can, but i do it how i can, too. you're not wrong, but you can't tell when your right.
 — bmikebauer

there are some golden lines here, threading their way from the heart -- sweet etchings stretching from inside toward the beloved sHe with child-like glee ...
 — AlchemiA

I think the real question is, how does Diana feel about this poem.
=)
 — mandolyn

yes, if it's written for her, and this is just posted here in happy-ness, then she'd be the only real reader.
