A Longhouse Birdhouse: WHY POETRY ~

A fine enough poet but I believe the best mind of Matthew Zapruder comes through in this excellent new book of essays — really one long essay — on the same subject of why poetry, why poets, why is there air, and he even scores points on Auden’s much over-used ragged line “poetry makes nothing happen” . . . with a delightful twist, Zapruder will show the reader that is exactly right: poetry MAKES nothing happen. A big word that “nothing.”
In these essays Zapruder shows forth as a natural born teacher.
Take up this book.

Letter To The Next Landowner

 

You won’t keep it up like we did

Not to worry — we did it for a half century

 

The stone hut, the sturdiest looking, will go first

I built it for our son — earth to earth

 

The house we re-built from ground to ridge

All the time it made the most perfect sense

 

A minister and his wife owned the house before we did

He not only sold us the house, he married us

 

The land was cut & mowed & planted & moved & loved

Every day of our lives, but don’t believe it

 

The land will tell you —

We are buried here

 

Our bones are the stones to be found

Wait for the wind

Bob Arnold

BEAUTIFUL   DAYS
Longhouse

A Longhouse Birdhouse: KATHY ACKER ~

“There’s going to be a world
where the imagination is created
by joy not suffering,
a man and a woman
can love each other again
they can kiss and fuck again
(a woman’s going to come along
and make this world for me
even though I’m not
alive anymore).”
