Modest Remains of Love

In modern relationships overstated gratitude spills like
the tangerine fizz

Skinning _a pain_ or taint off oblivion [i]/i//i/[i] here
I shall

Find... search... enter thoughts: know

Nothing deceitful happened insatiable sleeping essence
is recovered

Cuts are minor red-outs and the same smack of theme
stands under

Plan of action: tomorrow is my whole ricashe
to prove otherwise

Sub-serve the ones who brought back pure to
the tuning fork

OUch and disgusting for a perfect day easily

Lude beyond gorgeous obsessional... rave on let us
see voluntary nouns

______Intervals of a Different Character_____

l The vertical
l plumb l
l line

quick sketches never indicate a curve_______
_________a branch in a landscape for example
____________being aware of its relationship____to the vertical

My curves

are not mad
never should

the confident hand

overshadow my feelings

about the exclamation point's (usually I use them for cheery)
containment of urgency that recalls adolescent forms of
jubilant release, I suppose--some wanting of a way
to just say, *hey! everything's wonderful

The need ...
....to mitigate this cramp of conscience....

Sublimation means nothing less than the
alchemist's trick of turning the base into the
noble, the bad into the good, the useless into
the useful.

Anyone who knew how to do this would be
certain of immortal fame.

Unfortunately, the secret of converting
energy without the consumption of a still
greater quantity of energy has never yet
been discovered by the physicists

--Jung on Freud's theory of sublimation

An example of wanting to understand {through my own verse}
incomprehensible suffering, {frustrated attempt below}---it's
nearly impossible to write a poem without firsthand experience,
but I tried.

Jeffery Middleton, illustrator for Merriam-Webster's
Collegiate Dictionary 11th edition {issued last month} says:

The advantage of the pen-and-ink pictures over
photographs is that "you can emphasize certain
aspects...closer to the abstraction of what the item is."

10,000 new words & meanings-- totaling 165,000
230 new illustrations-- totaling 725

were among new technological words that Middleton
believes will date quickly, therefore no illustrations

illustrations removed: GRAND TOURING CAR, MUZZLE,
HAMMERLOCK, PINATA -(tends to be a violent image,
seems incongruous in a collegiate dictionary)-?

RAMPANT- the only non-noun new illustration -(should
be arousing.)

The whole thing, as Cassie also mentioned in her intro,
is a way out of the self / constriction of self conscious-
ness (and so also a way out of being ‘blocked’ or unable
to produce) that is, one poet is always being prompted
by the other poet, and reverse, and the relentless nat-
ure of the third party, the mail – all of these processes
acted out in the reading last night -

Which New Brutalist Are You?
I am James Meetze -ha ...very suave ...a dashingly good dresser.
You strongly desire to bring emotion back into "innovative"
poetry, yet you disdain pure confessionalism. You are the
spokesperson for The New Brutalism and behind that charming
smile and those shiny western shirt snaps, you are secretly
planning world domination. You love kittens, which shows
your true sensitive side. Your poems make people weep
Kasey, thank you! Allow me to mention that
"Unix 2" was co-written with Jordan & is one
of my favorites, a sensation of levitating as
Jordan and I exchanged lines back & forth.
