You ever read Bukowski’s Rape of the Holy Mother? One of my all-time favorites: http://bit.ly/2iCXpC (scroll down)
thanks for pointing out guy’s great quote and for guy’s pointing me to juliaintherye–wow, to “do” art in houston, texas, that’s a sisyphean task.
i also had no idea about bukowski’s poem, so again, thanks for pointing it out.
one thing you could point out for me, on the topic of poetry, is, well, poetry. i just don’t get it. apart from maybe ode to a grecian urn, or the rest of the romanticists (clearly old guys smoking the ganga in the old country and tripping out on the sublime landscape), i can’t get my head around it because my religion is prose. but it seems odder than ever to have a traditional approach to poetry, since it–more than any other writing–doesn’t subscribe to the structuralism that i would think it does. but that’s because i’m not on the inside curve with poetry.
Poetry is so much bigger than the “traditional” poems and poets most people are familiar with. Check out a poetry slam in the City some day if you want to sample a variety of different styles in one place. Or check out poetryspeaks.com, the newly launched site that sparked Friday’s discussion.
