Musings on Musings and James T.

Posted on Jul 20, 2017 in Poetry

Poetry has recently insinuated itself into my life.

Been reading some, particularly James Tate and Tracy K. Smith.  Which, with a surge of working in the studio with the Dark Matters series, teased out some words of my own.  So, periodically I will be sharing some that I’ve written.

In the interim, seeking a means to blend the poetry with photomontage in a visual format.  Without being cheeky. or banal or cloying.

James T.

I’m smitten
With a poet
He is not a handsome man
And not terribly accessible

Since he is long dead
Yet his words pierce me like a fish joke

And make me smile in irony
As my phone autocorrects my own
