The Dictator In The Magic Costume (Poetry) - 12/14/2013 4:22:29 PM|
Buried in this is a comment on the importance of honesty and accuracy, not colored by the imaginings of how it would be if wishes were concrete. All is perception according to honest opinion. When opinions are no longer aligned with honesty then all is lost. Uncertainty in all things breeds an odor of discontent. The emporer has no pants you know. Bob

A Conference In A Famous Place (Poetry) - 12/6/2013 9:02:05 AM
Just about as convoluted as most conferences I have attended. Still no know what you said, but the conference scene is a lot like that… Let's network.
A Festival Through Inevitability (Poetry) - 11/30/2013 8:21:10 AM
thought-provoking but needs a sense of direction within the dense foliage of words ...

I personally enjoyed this seemingly disorganized and dreamlike piece. If you follow it there is a sequence of juxtaposed images going toward a conclusion. Like a vivid dream there is a story told, chaotic and startling in the changes, but detectable. Meeting the supernatural ( dream ) on its own terms instead of reflecting the organization of reality. Thank you for the trip Dr. Bob

What a lovely bunch of phrases going nowhere. And why don't like stream of consciousness.
From A Lack Of Explanation (Poetry) - 11/7/2013 12:07:31 PM
A fine riddle for which I have no explanation????
What Ought To Be Done With Time Off (Poetry) - 10/31/2013 3:03:11 PM
I liked this one Doctor. It holds together at odd angles and is almost like a trip down the rabbit hole. It starts out as chatter about an art show. Almost as silent and jumbled as the thoughts that run through our minds and we're afraid to voice because we have no idea if anyone would understand. Then at the end it seems to transform into a comment on the masks we reveal to the world..I liked the way it reads, leaving the flow open to some interpretation. Excellent work. Bob
Bouncing The Particles Through Their Seasons (Poetry) - 10/26/2013 7:22:40 PM
I found the individual images of each line of this piece to be interesting and the overall piece shines with those little temporary images. It suffers from the lack of an overall theme though. Any individual sentence would be a fine start for a seperate work though. I liked how each sentence was worded Dr. Bob

I prefer surrealism in artwork over surrealism in words. The result of the word painting comes out incomprehensible and unsatisfactory. However, critics of poetry will probably find it to be laudable.
Always Ready Or Springing Into The Mind (Poetry) - 4/13/2013 5:50:46 PM

Never experience walking through blue light. I have had some experience with ultraviolet light that makes whites whiter and some colors look quite ugly.

It puts me in mind of an acid trip or a flashback thereof...whether it is or isn't, is not for me to distinguish, but I like this and re-read it several times trying to get the full effect...(I'm kinda slow at times, must be the stroke I had last summer, but still I enjoyed this write) ED
