'In poetry, you must love the words, the ideas
and the images and rhythms with all your capacity
to love anything at all'

Wallace Stevens

I like to write using words that have various meanings...that way the reader is free to interpret
as he or she chooses...to participate, to apply/discern the textures/images/ideas via personal involvement....
I also enjoy being somewhat of a neologist....fun for me, and, I hope, for you.....
as to parts of speech, well, they seem to morph, to renegotiate delineations...to play, creating rhythms, sounds and colors as they go.....

Thank you, dear poets, for perusing my efforts....I've much to learn. There are those here that have generously made valuable information available....I am most appreciative...

Love, D.

Brush On

your Shakespeare....veneer to seal illusion
the eldritch
grabbed Lear by the dangling bits/
swallowed/
concluded the transformation had been achieved
jump a couple of generations to feast with Titus
as androgyny is supplanted
by dual nondrogyny, complete with the exchange of meaningful eyerolls accompanied by simpers and cackles....
no bouquets thrown, though bows were taken
