Diastic poem by Ken Sherwood. Note on process and constraints in writing April Tenth

April Tenth

Our speak-stream society
merely the hands
Rapt Beholder
that velocity since earth

Earth [[#|alert]]:
"sparrow warble" puri

true and up
through spring

tender-bent perching,
lowing, the vespers

sing particular spirits shrill deficiency
the urn lost

laughing up train bearing
gone quite death
Their rumbling, long

rattle and circle
String still the ben jonsonian

whit earth

and spruce

circulate

baying
still lost

HIStory

HIStory sounds not HErs at all
Man Made HIStory his own bubble and Slave,
His own Doll and Mistress,
HEster Prynne was made so UnSEEn
He Wrote her story hundred years ago,
In Massachusetts, SOMEWHERE in Salim
WHERE WOmen SEEn as [[#|MEER]] Witches and EVIL

She did not speak nor Sneak
Hand-Cuffed and VoiceLESS: destined to BE
Silenced by her SCARLETT LETTER, not an A
Able, she was not, Adulteress was Her Label
The [[#|Scaffold]] was her Stage

His story is not Hers
Is his Story Similar to hers?
Sounds and Voices sound in different ways
To SEE means to SEEk, to SEE means to read beyond the SEA
Ophelia was Hester’s GRANDma, by nature, both doomed to decay
HIStory MADe WOmen inferior to SEE
As if “ BAD, MAD, and Dangerous to KNow”

Naked State

(Brooklyn Narcissus - Paul Blackburn)


lights lonely
line river
wobble
lovely lights

lonely, lovely blue
double lovely bridges

straight backwater
IMPOSSIBILITY

rye myself

the fucking rainy
exchange
mine as one
and
our pan tunnel, whose
trouble;
learn to long
HOME
