    Another one I’ll have to chalk up as homework read. The Skipper, Gilligan and the Professor never a lustful carnal thought prevailed. Stuck on an island with Ginger and Mary Ann. One has to wonder what they were doing behind the trees. I’m still trying to master my meter. I’m interested just not understanding.

      Nothing and One (a.k.a effusions of stroke and oval) are binary code. The eruptive, geologically prolific imagery is a way of viewing the 'world' of the internet. I know it's pretty abstruse.

        OMG! What density of imagery and command of language. So much meat on the bone, its lovely and overwhelming. You are not a light and easy read, Grant.

          I will think better of this poem since you see it thus, Tanner. Thank you for being more-than-whelmed 😊

            Hi, grant, late to the party again! This is another one of your grantian masterpieces created in a lyrical and mystical style at which one can only marvel. Stringing together words that have no business being within a paragraph of each other into a wondrous and magical tapestry of surpassing unity, beauty and depth!

              I thought this festooned galleon had sunk without trace way down the thread, MHenry. Sometimes I love it; sometimes I loathe it. Do you have poems you make that are like that? I like your observation about the inappropriate fraternisation of the words! Hahahahahahaha.

                I think I am rarely ambivalent. I either like what I have written, or I don't.

              I'm more like you MH in that I either love it (seldom happens) or I don't. That said Grant your work is truly amazing and thought provoking. You are a master of words putting together ideas that I would never think of doing. As Tanner said 'so much meat on the bones'. Separates - pardon the expression - the men from the boys.

                wow. you have a genius for words that goes beyond ordinary wordsmithing but this time the subject interests me more! do you think we can transcend binary thinking?

                  I think that the binary of nothing and one is at the very heart of existence as both unity and duality. I think our (largely unconscious) imitation of it with our digital technology is fascinating evidence of how the cosmos is written into human beings, generically and individually.

                    Otherwise said, despite outward indications, nothing could be more 'natural' than digital technology, hence my attempt to poetise its world shaping impact with the imagery of vast geological forces.

                        cosmos is written into human beings, generically and individually- your comment above
                        How, you may ask, did I stumble upon this one? grant hayes

                        Answer: I have no effing idea!

                        I was going from pillar to post as I do in art museums and at the Farmer's Market. Drove my old bf nuts!!
                        Joy joy! Here I Arrived as if by an auspicious push.... or could it be a pull?


                        I was shoved back in my dining room chair after reading:

                        Effusions of stroke and oval warm
                        the reeling oceans bladdered
                        behind galactic scads of keys,
                        minister germs to the shallows, and there
                        stir forms



                        This entire piece is an accumulation of many thoughts and mysteries that I have been toying with of late in my unending desire to figure things out... existence... past. present and the future- here and if beyond, where?
                        in regard to your comment about genetics. Have you ever spit into a vial to check your genetics back 5 generations or so? I would be curious to see where it could take you...


                        LOVE the poem- seriously --- more likes people!
