(1) Songs of the Self
Self-preoccupation as art’s raw material:
allegory, ambiguity, blindness
obsession theories. Monophony. Bleak house.
When one has lived a long time alone
the world, the flesh, and angels—no
more than leaves of grass
First, an index poem for NaPoWriMo Day 12. (Index and other phrases from The Creators by Daniel J. Boorstin.) Second, a book spine poem, a bit behind for NaPoWriMo Day 10.
April with its showers sweet
rattling the house-frame
new leaves tossed and turning
Happy April and Day One of NaPoWriMo 2016!
