Waveform
Watched single statis; delicate flow
in binding staid a point.
That which remains
is alone when lonely need not be.
Interference.

Harmonic oscillation,
swing vines in subhuman waves
tangential to desire.
Tangential to desire.
Going seen.
break.

Continuity is the warping
of tangent points into nirvana.
Sub-secting the law.
Sub-secting what law
into artifical mechanics.

The vagaries of heaven
in oscillating Love like waveforms
straightened
at sight and sight. Watching betrays
in holy light.

I can't write poetry anymore without thinking, "WWJRD?" What Would John Rosenwald Do?

Rosenwald would use about 25% fewer words and understand Quantum Mechanics better than I do before perpetrating this shlock to the world.

You're forgettng that he would also have a comprehensive list of every single synonym for every word in the poem and he had revised the poem 10,000 times with every possible combination of words.

Plus, he could share a good story of discussing the poem over a cup of tea with the Poet Lauriate of some African nation.

All while trimming his perfect beard.

Sure. Make me feel even more inadequate. :þ
Clearly, I must reread my sister's dissertation so that I may ameliorate this guffaw of art.

I once gave an hour.5 presentation on that poem.

The funny thing is that Rosenwald would LOVE this discussion. He's not vain enough to be joyous about students remembering his class, but he would be happy about his former students still enjoying poetry.

I think I'm going to spend some time this afternoon with Omyar Khyam's Rubiyat.

BTW: I posted my favorite poem onto my LJ.
