    Only Poems Bleed

    I like poems that don't bleed all over the place.
    In fact I like poems that know their place.
    And their place is the poetry thread.

    Should we start to see a spot here or a spot there,
    We suspect a pretentious poem
    Trying to write in their own blood.

    They tell me only poems bleed;
    Only a poem can write in their own blood;
    And only a poem can paint blood red.

    I don't know about you
    But when I see see a poem starting to spot red,
    I tell them they are off topic.

    A poem is but a single drop in the ocean.
    Like the seas, endless and ever in motion.
    Stirred and churned by the warmth within, she never rescinds.
    Continiously shaped, edged, she breaths the cold harsh winds.

    Unpredictable, she is; never a bore
    Now, soft, pristine, graceful and clear, she is at peace.
    Then chaotic, bursting, chirning and yearning, a sudden unease!
    Ramming and pushing, crashing against the shore!

    She is not bound, not by skies, or by the lands
    Forming clouds and storms, bleeding rivers and lakes...

    Could you possibly understand, what it would have meant,
    had my poem be caught in but a glass so still, longing for more fill,
    but a tiny drop amongst some others,
    bound by a thread with but a few of her brothers?

    My dear Fluffy, I can't possible understand, or what it meant to be bound to so few of your brothers. But still, I felt the familiarity of the bleeding rivers and lakes, and how nice it was of you to respond in kind.
    Victor.

    I think it's getting at if a poem were so still as to be confined to a glass it would make for miserable reading.

    As for sharing thread with her brothers? I dont know, we're all sharing a thread now.

    It's that I meant that poetry should not be confined to a poetry thread, for its meaning/intention will probably be lost. Instead, poems should be unleashed whereever and whenever they seem appropiate. Which I believe Victor in his poem desires, as his poem rebels (not posted in the poetry thread) at the thought of such confinement. Not quite willing to admit defeat of the set rules by the forums authority.

    Using the forum as a metaphor, sharing a sentiment that is true for many of todays ongoings. To voice against blind acceptance of authoritarianism.

    At least, that is if I interpretted Victor's poem as he intended. But that's just another power of poetry, it can speak differently to every unique listener.

    His poem speaks more of how things are, mine speaks of how things should be.

    Poetry should be everywhere.

    For example: Exhibit A.

    As a third poem, seems this might just be reality.

    Yes Fluffy, you have understood my little poem perfectly, it is a cri de coeur against the staighteners, the wowsers, the literate, those Roman Legions who marched across Europe in straight lines, in alphabetic order.

    Of course most of all it is a reference to the song, "Only Women Bleed", click on - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXW9w17Tf0A

    And of course women do bleed, but in a literate, patriarchal society, women don't bleed all over the place. Women don't write in their own blood; women don't paint with their red blood. No, like a good poem, women know their place. Women and poems are not allowed off topic.
