Today is a day for posting

And changing the links, perhaps organizing pages.

Should we create new pages for each category of poem? Or spread them willy nilly across the screen, and perhaps load an avatar?

I think I’ll find all the poetry spread across my Papers, PCs, and the web and collect it here. Then decide. Comments are welcome.

Let’s start with a little self referential poem concerning how we break lines in modern English Poetry, as if we learned enjambement recently…

LINES, SPACES, BREAKS

Lines break where breath stops
start where words express anew
thought, picture, hue.
lines end here
or there and can be seen
related, or bound with no mercy
tied to your next idea

And again sometimes together you
bind an image like a camera
light to film, line to line, face
to memory.

From the break a binding
image drags a thought
along, past spaces, forces pauses,
—–Emily Dickinson used dashes——
Make the reader see
See the light, see many sides.

You never know, you only
decide yourself how the poem
breaks for you, your ear, your head, your heart.
