Stewart McKenzie Poems
Rtfm 08 Planck Verse
When poetic compression of meaning Passes a quantum threshold (The Blanck Length?) Ambiguities arise.
Timesong 09 Timeless
Stay perfectly still. At your motionless* center You travel through time.
Rtfm 17 Po 'Em
The ideal audience size for a poet is one. Direct from me to you. No watchers. Whispering together in the privacy of our minds. When poems are performed therefore
Genietail 04 The Telomere's Tale
Shrink wrapped for freshness in telomere tails - Genes that is, lifestuff - Tails that tear with each genesplit until they’re gone, Life too.
Rtfm 20 The Ghost In The Words
The ghost in the words The voice in the signs The figure in the scribbles That hides between the lines
Rtfm 06 Mandarin For Maybe
The French and Japanese pass laws To try to keep words out While wanton English tempts words in Like some old hooker on History Street.

X Diary 07 Happy Sam And The Magic Hors...
A Children's Tale Once upon a time There was a little boy called Happy Sam
Timesong 10 Bumpy History

Rtfm 08 Planck Verse
When poetic compression of meaning
Passes a quantum threshold
(The Blanck Length?)

Present alternative meanings.
Assonance and dissonance intervene.
Group memories resonate
Meaning becomes a matter of probability
Of parallel possibilities in multiple dimensions.
Ordinary rules of communication
Do not apply at this level of compression.
