    Proliferative Mob


    day upon day,
    night over night
    wellsprings of beauty;
    horror; struggle;
    love or honor lent

    running to grasp
    with faintest cue
    wonder –
    that is you (plural)

    Zone poets – now
    or ages past –
    I salute, succumb,
    savor such
    pondering powers
    displayed in profligate
    reams of rich, recalcitrant
    verse

    would that many
    minutes more
    marked each
    day

    I
    can’t
    keep
    up

    This slender poem is very shapely sounding, Rhymist; beautifully thought and wrought. You honour the Zone poets greatly.

      Thank you Grant. And still, these days, I feel I'm missing more pieces than I'm catching. Things will slow up soon, I think. We've been enjoying our grandchildren the past five days while mum and dad were on holiday!

    You take such every day thoughts and in your personal style make them into wonderful poems.

      RLW, I see you used one of my favourite words, recalcitrant. I see you are saluting the rabble of the Mob in the Zone. I think there is too much intelligence in the RZ! We need to dumb down like the vast majority of society who see no use for Poetry which for many is a self-indulgent, frivolous enterprise - ah, but then again, as W.S. Merwin once said in a letter to me, "If it's your life you'll know it as you go along". I now see what he meant. Poetry is Life to me; I can't imagine not writing or reading it, and I am sure many others share this sentiment.

        Oh no Tanner - I am not wanting it to stop! I only wish I could absorb it ALL. These days I find myself falling more behind and missing more pieces than ever. Perhaps it is just a season in my life. I'll take in as much as I can for now, and hope that longer days for more perusing will return posthaste.

        not that profligate applies, that's the irony. but I did not know the proliferate, I dont think. score. Another word: Apotrapaic. as in apotrapaic magic; protection energi.

        edit:you even used the twin word to proliferate it blent in so well! hahaha It's mornings, that's my excuse, good morning.. guten tag.

        This is amusing amenOra. I actually think I had profligate in the poem title at one point . At some different attempts with the way I write, it might well apply. But then, today, looking at the poem again I realize that I used proliferate (verb) when wanting an adjective - more appropriately prolific (as Tony caught) or proliferative (which the dictionary gave me). I actually like the original title better - the way it sounds to my ear. I'm probably hopeless as an actual writer unless I find some awesome editors to go behind and fix my mistakes. Although, truthfully, I kind of like my quirky way of doing things. I too, had crazy dreams last night - must have been something going around.

      I love the style and diction here.
      A rush of verbiage echoing exasperation.

        You are sweet to say so LG. Even though sometimes I feel like I'm swimming against the current.
