An inner eye be not memory say I, say I

But a longitudinal wave stretching forth its monstrous hand

Memories are repetitive say I, say I

You end your life the same as you began

 

Fate has claim to us all say I, say I

Noone has choice on family born into, nor circumstances at that

Life is predetermined say I, say I

Changes made tend to revert, the soul grows fat

 

The greater romantic lives within us say All, say All

You can be anything, except what you can’t

Evil is simplified projections say All, say All

Those in the light tend to twist and slant

 

You are who you choose to be say None, say None

Arrogance slides to confidence as you become a man

Slip the cloak and ride the wave say Few……say Few

You’re remembered best for what you don’t plan

Friday’s and Upcoming Schedule

Tomorrow is friday and the normal day I make multiple posts with new material. While my writing tends to take a focus on friday and sunday due to free time from school, my winter break is fast approaching as is my poetic reading list. I’ll be reading the following: 

The Making of a Poem: A Norton Anthology of Poetic Forms by Mark Strand

Poetic Meter and Poetic Form by Paul Fussell

The Crafty Poet: A Portable Workshop by Diane Lockward

Each is considered a major publication on or around writing poetry and I’ll be reading in the order presented above so I can gain a grasp progressively. As I finish each book, I’m likely to take a stab at experimentation in Poetry and i’ll be sure to post it here for views/review. I’m currently finishing a poem in gnomic verse, and finished another as an intense example of alliteration. Fun stuff! Hope anyone who reads this has a great day and forthcoming weekend.
