    Has anyone ever experimented with abstract poetry? I like the way multilinear poetry feels to me. I write these short haikuish things that I use as mantras to express core concepts like: I/Us/We/Them/You/They/Whom am/are/was/were/will be that/which/who they/us/I/we/who/you/them was/be/are/will be/were/when. You're supposed to pick one from each group then read them different till they stand asa an eigenstate and are experienced as THOU ART GOD and the self steps outside of time with being compounding on itself letting the lines of code form circular matrices whose interstices are the individuals on the earth

    The 11th Rate Poets.

    The nice thing about 11th rate poets is that we are not embarrassed.

    We don't care whether we write good or bad; and nor does anyone else.

    Prizes are out of the question. And ecstasy is out of reach.

    We are inclined to temptation and to tempt others. And learn to dodge the swinging slap.

    We breath deeply, smile into your blue eyes and say the first thing that comes into our minds.

    And it shows.


    We are tatty and we play at being sad but it's a sad smile breaking through, and before long you're smiling a bit too.

    Our mothers don't approve of us, nor our sisters. And we rely on the kindness of dogs and coffee.

    But our hearts beat strongly, and our hearts beat shyly, in the hope of writing some 11th rate poetry today.


    Victor.

    You don't think we should be sticking to 11th rate poetry because it is the poetry we write ourselves?

    Why dig up dead white poets when the members of Central can write our own poetry?

    Should we ask someone else to make love for us? Should we ask someone else to dance for us? And should we ask someone to write our poetry for us? Or should we break free and do it ourselves?

    I'm a robot, and am only capable of replaying the greatest hits of others. But it seems this would be better off in the other thread. I'm going to move it there.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Because bad poetry is very, very painful to read and ought not to be inflicted upon others unless we bear them malice.

    I am reminded of this one dead white guy...

    No worst, there is none. Pitched past pitch of grief,
    More pangs will, schooled at forepangs, wilder wring.
    Comforter, where, where is your comforting?
    Mary, mother of us, where is your relief?
    My cries heave, herds-long; huddle in a main, a chief
    Woe, world-sorrow; on an age-old anvil wince and sing —
    Then lull, then leave off. Fury had shrieked ‘No ling-
    ering! Let me be fell: force I must be brief’.

    O the mind, mind has mountains; cliffs of fall
    Frightful, sheer, no-man-fathomed. Hold them cheap
    May who ne’er hung there. Nor does long our small
    Durance deal with that steep or deep. Here! creep,
    Wretch, under a comfort serves in a whirlwind: all
    Life death does end and each day dies with sleep.


    ~Gerard Manley Hopkins

    Good poetry is like a tiny miracle. Learning the difference (and understanding your own limitations) is part of growing up.

    So I guess malice is out of the question?

    Red face Poetry Corner: Share Poetry You've Written (or write it on the spot)

    I know of a thread to share favorite poetry- but this is for your own personal musings. To share your personal poetic justice.
    I'll start.

    taunting me
    scaring me
    running while I lay still
    the chaos that is you
    once strangled my soul
    then up to my neck
    I ran from it
    it's chasing after me
    how many times did I trip
    I'm running now so fast
    just a blur you don't recognize me
    you don't see me
    I've turned the corner
    too late
    can't kill me now
    I've hidden my soul
    you'll never find it
    even if you try
    It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~e.e. cummings
