This construct pertains to that (often) nebulous time upon awakening when the eyes are still closed, the body is mostly still at peace, but the mind is conjuring all manner of weirdness from the sounds and smells about.

"There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes
to see with the other eye."



fancying forenoons sustained vigor’s
epiphysis cerebri arouses with pelting rain
(Eyes still closed, the vagueness of reality sharpens
with the aroma of brewing coffee and the laundry hamper)
information runnels flowing as auditory influences
pepper temporal dimensions associated
in spatial dispersion
(she’s doing the dishes)
bone against flesh groaning to
pierce barriers beyond all limitations
or the vast confinements of
sarcoid hemispheres in
dawn’s unexampled awakening
(Necks sore; I should mark off today maybe)
seeking harmony free from variation
or change inwardly evolving
eyes accept
what most regard as malleable, immanent
art predestined to pop culture’s fugacious trendiness
(Those dreams sucked. I wonder what’s going on.)
fearing another aggregate of clerisy envisioning
society as eternal shards fitted seamlessly
that when evolved
are endowed as a whole
with amorphous consciousness,
life without confinements, or, the mutterings of
religious reprobates that figure faith through sullied portals
(“Coffee’s ready sweetheart - bad dreams?”)

Interesting dreams for sure, Richard. Back when I did karate, we would do certain excercises blindfolded to sharpen the senses. It's amazing how one can grow to sense someone coming without a sound or scent. Your poem reminds me of those days and how inward-thinking moments like that become.

Congratulations on your new book! It sounds great. Love and hugs,

Richard, if I could wake up like this, perhaps I might be able to
write a poem as intelligent and illuminating as this...or at least
such lines as these:

bone against flesh groaning to
pierce barriers beyond all limitations

Somehow, with those wonderful bracketed voice inserts, I imagine
that T.S. Eliot would have liked to have written this.

Reviewed by John Flanagan 3/23/2011
Nuanced, multi-shaded and layered exploration
of the newly-"unexampled awakening"...
streams of (Joycean) consciousness running free
put punctuated at intervals by the 'other voice'
of reality and the ordinary doings that get us
through the morning and the rest of the day.
As Christine says, this is deeply inviting, and it's
a joy, Richard, to be welcomed into your world and your expression.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 3/23/2011
It sure helps to wake up from those! I think you've described the feeling very well.

Reviewed by Christine Tsen 3/23/2011
Wow! What a deeply inviting poem, at once beautifully profound, masculine, sexy and well as stark.
The third eye, beautiful!
I have it in mind to read your books soon Richard.

i am going to hear a speaker this saturday in santa monica who talks a lot about this sort of thing. that's a really cool pic too, love to blow that up for the office. funny how the altered state of consciousness in the AM can lead to expansion of perception and awareness-- this morning i envisioned a world of nightmare and awoke to a world of nightmare.
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 3/23/2011
Okay, I get this, I really do, though it took several reading & don't ask me to explain it...that I know I couldn't do...funny how I posted something about waking up as well...are you following me...? ;-)e
