Kristin E. Johnson's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Die Kohlmahlzeit by Herbert Nehrlich (3/14/2005 11:44:00 AM)

    Oh, my. Oh, my. That's the lenghtiest German-language treatment of bodily functions and smells that I have ever, ever seen.

    Fart humor auf deutsch. Not something you see everyday.

  • POEM: Corgy Theology by Bill Grace (3/5/2005 6:11:00 PM)

    Bill, I respect your faith very much, but it looks like you are doing the same thing that I do when I try to write on religious topics and that is to be restrained about the ideas and images presented.

    True faith is supposed to give true freedom, and reat religious poets are tremendously free in what they express.

    I try to answer the challenge of the Buddhists when they say that one should endeavor to think a perfect thought.

    Now, mind you, I cant even fry a perfect omelet, much less think a perfect thought, but I don't think the Buddhists have the exclusive rights to discipline of thought. So I borrow a bit from their discipline if not their worldview.

    Maybe I can't think a PERFECT thought, but I strive to have an ORIGINAL thought.

    What I have learned is that making a truly original and artistic expression of a religious topic is EXTREMELY difficult to accomplish. A real warning sign that I have taken the wrong approach is if it turns out in somewhat of an arrogant 'I'm right and you are not as right as I am untill you get ahold of my wisdom from me.'

    Just a few thoughts.

  • POEM: Do Not Mock Me by James Grengs (3/4/2005 3:33:00 PM)

    If you seek to make words your craft, be careful to know the meaning and usage of the words you choose.

    Take care to know the difference between 'than' and 'then' and when to use each word to say what you mean to express.

    than (thn, thn) conj.

    Used after a comparative adjective or adverb to introduce the second element or clause of an unequal comparison: She is a better athlete than I.
    Used to introduce the second element after certain words indicating difference: He draws quite differently than she does.

    then (thn) adv.
    At that time: I was still in school then. Come at noon; I'll be ready then.
    Next in time, space, or order; immediately afterward: watched the late movie and then went to bed.
    In addition; moreover; besides: It costs $20, and then there's the sales tax to pay.
    Used after but to qualify or balance a preceding statement: The star was nervous, but then who isn't on the first night of a new play.
    ***** In that case; accordingly: If traffic is heavy, then allow extra time. ****
    As a consequence; therefore: The case, then, is closed.
