You think I was being cute. The point being poetry does not have to be long winded to be effective. Rene Char joined the Surrealist group in 1929, and edited a collection of poems with Breton and Eluard in 1930. I discounted it as well the first time I read it until I realized that he had to have meant more by it. Maybe the woman he was with didn't and so he felt his manhood was threatened or that she really didn't love him the way he loved her.
Please don't condescend to me. I am well aware of how much poetry means.
Also, I am to tired for this, so goodnight, sir.
Condescending ? I think not !

.....kindly check your facts "Nina" I was quoting a few lines from Audre Lorde, if you might have taken the time to check closer.....something to the effect, as you were doing when you quoted your piece by "Rene Char."

Thanks for the lesson in the abridged, and somewhat diminished history of Surrealist poetry....I'm well aware of the Poets you've mentioned.........a little more tact and courtesy by you, and I might have saved you the time explaining......and you may have retired earlier....Thank you and Goodnight !

The poem was motivated by the ones who belittle, discredit and ridicule me throughout these web sites......and was in no way intended for you.
However I must admit that I was picturing myself writing it in an idyllic setting, interlaced with the memories of genuine love and warmth in a picturesque setting.
Hope you are well ?
A.K.
hay good afternoon to you...... I am okay thank you for asking.... and I hope you are well also..??

I have seen what they have written about us.... especially on the avatar thread.... you should do as I do and ignore them... I would say that they sound a little jealous and desperate ... and while they are talking about us... they are leaving everyone else alone.... so it's a win win situation ....

don't let 'em bother ya baby...

You are right. I was feeling defensive and brought my negativity to the thread. I should not have put that on you. I apologize for my entirely unwarranted reaction. It was unfair. I was a b*tch, I can own it.
It seems I have some things I need to work on. Again, I am sorry to have put my issue on you.

Thank you Nina, We all come nearest to the great,(myself included), when we are great in humility.

I'm fit and never better

It's not that anyone here "bothers" me, it's just the fact if I let one slide, another one soon follows in its place.......I think it's a sort of built in so called Freudian psychoanalytic theory, a defence mechanism.....however I wouldn't complain if they all went away and picked on someone else.

Could I respectfully say, not meaning any offence, that I don't particularly like your new avatar.....

and In case our pathes don't cross in the next few days......HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Are you the least bit curious why Laura Beth signs her posts as Wildbluerose Or poses as Stacked and Proud? Well..we could talk about that. perhaps Chat with Ozzie.......I bet you'd love that!

I still want to know why you signed up as Clare Bathshire...wanna talk?

"Could I respectfully say, not meaning any offence, that I don't particularly like your new avatar....."

Stacked and Proud, this is the part that reinforces your low self-esteem and thus the put-downs that you're comfortable with. And this is the part where you desperately reply to the astute Homunculus Nebula in an effort to validate yourself.

There is a dark, hooded sadness,

Crouched at the bottom of my soul,

Waiting with bitter patience.

He does not howl or scream,

But he makes his presence known with an incessant maundering ring -

Like hollow chimes in the swirling winter wind.

He does not touch me or speak to me,

But he follows at my heels with the persistence of a shadow

And then pools around my feet-

Like the wax that holds a melting candle to its ground.

The Conundrum of the Workshops

When the flush of a new-born sun fell first on Eden's green and gold,
Our father Adam sat under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves, "It's pretty, but is it Art?"

Wherefore he called to his wife, and fled to fashion his work anew --
The first of his race who cared a fig for the first, most dread review;
And he left his lore to the use of his sons -- and that was a glorious gain
When the Devil chuckled "Is it Art?" in the ear of the branded Cain.

They fought and they talked in the North and the South, they talked and they fought in the West,
Till the waters rose on the pitiful land, and the poor Red Clay had rest --
Had rest till that dank blank-canvas dawn when the dove was preened to start,
And the Devil bubbled below the keel: "It's human, but is it Art?"

They builded a tower to shiver the sky and wrench the stars apart,
Till the Devil grunted behind the bricks "It's striking, but is it Art?"
The stone was dropped at the quarry-side and the idle derrick swung,
While each man talked of the aims of Art, and each in an alien tongue.

They fought and they talked in the North and the South, they talked and they fought in the West,
Till the waters rose on the pitiful land, and the poor Red Clay had rest --
Had rest til the dank, blank-canvas dawn when the dove was preened to start,
And the Devil bubbled below the keel: "It's human, but is it Art?"

The tale is as old as the Eden Tree -- and new as the new-cut tooth --
For each man knows ere his lip-thatch grows he is master of Art and Truth;
And each man hears as the twilight nears, to the beat of his dying heart,
The Devil drum on the darkened pane: "You did it, but was it Art?"

We have learned to whittle the Eden Tree to the shape of a surplice- peg
We have learned to bottle our parents twain in the yelk of an addled egg,
We know that the tail must wag the dog, for the horse is drawn by the cart;
But the Devil whoops, as he whooped of old: "It's clever, but is it Art?"

When the flicker of London sun falls faint on the Club-room's green and gold,
The sons of Adam sit them down and scratch with their pens in the mould --
They scratch with their pens in the mould of their graves, and the ink and the anguish start,
For the Devil mutters behind the leaves: "It's pretty, but is it Art?"

Now if we could win to the Eden Tree where the Four Great Rivers, flow,
And the Wreath of Eve is red on the turf as she left it long ago,
And if we could come when the sentry slept and softly scurry through,
By the favour of God we might know as much as out father Adam knew.

Intolerance is the most socially acceptable form of egotism, for it permits us to assume superiority without personal boasting.

Devout, pious, conspicuous, hypocritical believers, such as you, are never safeguarded in such a high degree against the risk of certain neurotic illnesses; their acceptance of the universal mundane considerations, that you appear to have, is a neurosis that is unlikely to spare you the task of constructing a personal salvation.

Remember the long ago when we lay together
In a pain of tenderness and counted
Our dreams: long summer afternoons
When the whistling-thrush released
A deep sweet secret on the trembling air;
Blackbird on the wing, bird of the forest shadows,
Black rose in the long ago summer,
This was your song:
It isn't time that's passing by,
It is you and I.

I've dreamed of you so much that you're losing
your reality.

Is it already too late for me to embrace your
literal, living and breathing physical body

and to kiss that mouth which is the birthplace of
that voice which is so dear to me?

I've dreamed of you so much that my arms--which
have become accustomed to

lying crossed upon my own chest after attempting
to encircle your

shadow--might not be able to unfold again to
embrace the contours of your

literal form, perhaps

So that coming face-to-face with the actual
incarnation of what has haunted me

and ruled me and dominated my life for so many
days and years

Might very well turn me into a shadow.

Oh equilibriums of the emotional scales!

I've dreamed of you so much that it might be too
late for me to ever wake up again.


I sleep on my feet, body confronting all the
usual phenomena of life and love

and yet

when it comes to you--you, the only being on the
planet who matters to me

now--

I can no more touch your face and lips than I can
those of the next random passerby.

I've dreamed of you so much, have walked and talked and slept so much with

your phantom presence that perhaps the only thing left for me to do now

Is to become a phantom among phantoms, a shadow a
hundred times more shadowy

than that shifting shape which moves and which
will go on moving,

stepping lightly and happily across the sundial
of your life.
