Poetry today

A poet is one who understands incomprehensible language. - Blanche

LIGHTNESS

verbal
anorexia,
eats you to the skeleton
the alphabet that
do not know
to use

"

BEAUTIFUL NOTHING

remain a fixed point
in the stagnation of the wind
like a lonely buoy
forgotten in the fall
whatever is to come
will only come
you just stay
in the beauty of nothing
at the empty point of the sun
expecting excitement
from the interior of the sea
the storm generates storms
and rest too

THE ARTIST

he only painted her breast
he had been looking at the canvas for a month
failed in his attempts
to invent it
and the grain is the center of the dial
counting down the seconds
until the first inhalation
the first tapping of the warm organ
in white flesh - the delay
by which a man gives birth to love

Great poets and writers are those who know life too well, not from books, but from life itself. Those who have sat behind a desk for years and analyzed other people's words, instead of writing their own and looking for them outside - where life is, and inside - where its personal experience and meaning is, never prescribe. They forever remain at the level of word order because they have no material to wear with them. 

 

To write means to be responsible for the development of language and culture. Unfortunately, few poets and writers are aware of their responsibility. If you strive for a commensurate with the language, though it is always bigger than you, then you have taken the right path.
