I Love This Site
#1
Thanks to all who have made this site possible. It has really rekindled my love of the spoken and written word. I mean it. Fucking Milo, man you write some great stuff (it makes my dick shrink). Same for you Leanne and ellajam and Keith and Billy and erthona and Bena and newsclippings and christopherbythesea and true enigma and tectak and jeremy (gone now) and ray and and on and on and on...

I suck at poetry, but this site has made me want to write again...thanks to you all...

Just yesterday I saw a car license plate titled "CREEPER"
I couldn't figure out if it was a remark projected at the viewer or a self diagnosis.
I'll be there in a minute.

A newbie poet senses impending doom as his half-remembered recurring
dream turns into reality. The spectral entities of PigPen encourage him
to stay as they take turns plying him with shrouded obloquy.

You must be a fan of Jorge Luis Borges.

You got talent. I'm *just* smart enough to know that. Keep on keeping on poetic soul.

Really? I just got such a Borges feeling from you, your shit. I LOVE Borges. Him and Oscar Wilde I find myself compulsively agreeing with. I've read everything he's written. I love his compilation of essays (though others might not like as much as his poetry or fiction). He's got about as much common sense and penetrating intelligence and wit as I've literally encountered...kind of like Montaigne in that way, though Montaigne not as delightfully so.

God I love great writers and thinkers.

Did you ever read Paul Valery's writings on poetry? They might be better than his poetry.

Anyway...I'm in love now, and feeling good. You'll have to excuse my manic effusiveness. Big Grin

Mystic moon, silver host
Shimmering on the sea
Lure me to innermost
Tangled complicity...

No one, not even Borges, could have possibly read everything he's written.
Or did you mean Wilde? That's faintly possible.

But me? No, jeez, I've never read everything of anything nor anything of
everything. But I've tried to fool some of the people some of the time
(that's got to count for something).

Valery... my brain balks. Not a good balk or a bad balk, just a balk.


But Borges, anybody who loves Borges is somebody worth loving. Smile

^^^Obviously not everything. lol But those three volumes that came out some years ago of Borges's collected poetry, fiction, and essays are wonderful. I still pick them off the shelf to read certain things from time to time.

Oh, billy, give him a try, I haven't read him in years used to be a fave. I think I may have one around, maybe I'll reread it and get inspired. Thanks for the idea, NN.

OT, yeah, this site has it all for me, makes me grin frequently and I read and/or research what I never would otherwise. Thanks for keeping it going, billy.

Thanks, too, for the shout out. You have the foundations of being a dick-shrinker: you have read and consumed the greats. That's really the only way to begin. I am enjoying watching you grow. I love this site too...it's very difficult to find honest, fantastic critique anywhere online these days. More than loving the site, I love all the people involved in this fanatical dysfunctional family.

I'd read a fair bit of his poetry in the past and felt I was connected
to it in some way. It was more than just liking or loving; it was what I'd always
dreamed of writing. I could never do stuff like that; but, in having his poems to
steal from, mine have gotten a bit better. I love his stuff because it deals with
time, paradox, what writing does to itself, etc. Mathematical magician.

I found this one-volume collection that he selected himself a year or two ago
at a used book store ($2) Smile , but I stacked it next to my computer unread.
THANKYOU for reminding me of him. Will scramble through the pile and find
it. My passion awakes... Smile

P.S. And yes, I truly love this site and the generous benefactors who've made
it possible.
