    • POEM: As We Are So Wonderfully Done With Each Other by Kenneth Patchen (9/8/2007 11:30:00 AM)

      in response to anne's comment: i first read patchen in high school in the mid 2000's, some forty years after you did. i feel the same way: patchen defined the (as yet unnapproachable) world in a way that made it seem so magical and so passionate. KP is among the few poets that actually effected my development into an adult (my commute isn't quite finished) .

    • POEM: The Force That Through The Green Fuse Drives The Flower by Dylan Thomas (8/28/2007 11:48:00 AM)

      I disagree Barry: You're half-right. The One-Ness of all things, but man isn't impotent to witness it. He IS it. He's impotent to COMMUNICATE it. He's witnessing it so strongly though that its nearly blinding. True: one of the greatest poems at least of the 20th century. Thomas is right up there with Pound and Eliot in my eyes.
