Maybe it is
on me
I limited choice
rather than watch
as it drifted through
seas of possibilities
you can interrogate a text
through novel quests
like a comic
which flips through
understandings in dialectical frames
or perhaps Found poems
inference far stronger
of the main idea

Check out how Kevin Hodgson summarized a book in comics

Following Kevin's lead I decided to use Found poems as a way to take to notes of a book I am currently reading.

An open life : Joseph Campbell in conversation with Michael Toms

You can find my feed of found poems here:

Do ways of representing
start denting
the pool of minutes
yes but the understanding
within us
through slow reading
and remix strengthens
the negotiation of meaning.

Pull into the Poetry Port: A #clmooc poetry challenge for the Month of February #IndieWeb

1 min read

Poetry can offer a safe harbor from the tumultuous waves of our lives. The words and verse we offer can also stir up a storm in the calmest of seas.

To celebrate the limitless navigation through the channels of language the crew has christened a new vessel of verse: The Poetry Port

Every day in February a random word was chosen. Need a poem? You will be assigned to one of our captainless crew who will craft a ballad just for you. Get your daily ticket for the journey using this form

Want to write your epic creation, check the calendar and put a poem out there. Text, audio, video, gifs, all of the above and nothing at all.

poetry adrift in
unwary words
of visionary

in port

waves of words
crests of truth
distort the barnacles
lodged in our souls
as bards
from the atolls
of lost words
