Poetry and antisocials

:D

I smile, because I'm not quite sure what to expect. I wonder if you enjoy any poetry and if so what selections you like most.

Just a while ago, somebody recited some of Carol Ann Duffy's Valentine off-cuff and I thought it quite charming. We reviewed it when I was in school and I remember enjoying it then as well. https://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.u ... valentine/

Share some, please, if you'd like. I'm quite interested to read what you enjoy

From Miguel Serrano's 'Nos: Book of the Resurrection'.

'Come what may I will proceed
To walk the way
Of beauty,
The way that leads towards the height
That seems to touch
The sky.
Steep is the path,
But filled with light
From those that climbed
Before me,
Who left on every jutting rock
A lantern glowing
With their dreams.'

I forgot about this one too.

Can't leave out Bukowski

I escaped my black widow
because she had too many males
in her web
and while she was embracing one
and then the other and then
another
I worked free
got out
to where I was before

she'll miss me---
not my love
but the taste of my blood,
but she's good, she'll find other
blood;
she's so good that I almost miss my death,
but not quite;
I've escaped. I view the other
webs.


(the escape)

It’s not that I don’t occasionally read poetry (though it is rare, according to goodreads of the 80ish books I’ve got through so far this year only 3 were poetry) it’s simply that my taste is wonderfully provincial. I expect most will know all of these.

Crow’s Theology

Crow realized God loved him-
Otherwise, he would have dropped dead.
So that was proved.
Crow reclined, marvelling, on his heart-beat.

And he realized that God spoke Crow-
Just existing was His revelation.

But what Loved the stones and spoke stone?
They seemed to exist too.
And what spoke that strange silence
After his clamour of caws faded?

And what loved the shot-pellets
That dribbled from those strung-up mummifying crows?
What spoke the silence of lead?

Crow realized there were two Gods-

One of them much bigger than the other
Loving his enemies
And having all the weapons.

Sort of related to this thread and the forum, there is a series of historical novels known as the regeneration trilogy by pat barker which follow WHR Rivers the psychiatrist and anthropologist who pioneered talking therapy for the treatment of ‘war nuerosis’ which would obviously later become know as ptsd. The first book centres around his treatment of Sassoon and his friendship with Owen. Iirc they won or were nominated for a booker prize, they’re worth a read if you’re into that sort of thing.

Not really one for poetry, my level is more:

Mary had a little lamb,
The midwife had a fit.

or:

Mary had a little lamb,
She also had a duck,
(You can see where this is going)
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.

Preying on victims I hunt in the night
Stalking them quietly, waiting to strike
Young women I kill with the blade of my knife
Curing this disease you call human life
Hookers and whores are the easiest to kill, but
Only the 'innocent' can provide the best thrill
Police and detectives continue their search
As more people go missing each year from this Earth
Time will soon tell what my fate has in store
How long I have left before I can hunt them no more

I’m not particularly interested in poetry myself, but I can appreciate talent and a good imagination and writing.

I haven't read poetry for years. I went through a phase of it and writing it when in psychotherapy.

I'm sold on the onion being a better Valentine's day symbol than the rose now, and as a kid I often used to think like that crow.

Good poetry speaks to the soul and conjures up senses it's easy to miss in life. Going to read some poetry for half hour. Have good days/nights all of you (unless you're out killing, then I suppose I hope you miss).
