All Poems Have Been Written: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poetic Lament

November 13, 2010

When I told her I wrote poetry, a woman told me “All poems have been written”. This are my poetic responses.

It’s hard speaking of poems from ignorance./
Like saying all great dances were already danced./
Don’t repeat riding thru the glade./
All love is already made.

Later (9 p.m.) I wrote this Haiku
One of the saddest/
and most absurd silly things/
that I’ve ever heard

Sometimes Demonized Coaches Need Angelic Coaching: A Revolutionary IMprov Poem

July 27, 2009

She sits alone.
Stares at the phone:
New, unbidden demons
unleashed in her home.

A couple of calls!
That’s all
it took.
And her world was shook.

Then,
through another medium,
she hears new, angelic voices,
again:

“You’ve opened my sight!”
“You’re changing my me.”
“You were right!”
“Thanks to you, I see
freely!”

And the demons fade,
and aren’t even as much,
as drying dew in the glade,
due to the lives she’s touched.
