LANGUAGE IS THE POET'S NEMESIS - ABONFIRE OF OUR VANITIES


Words, they are the enemy, never trust them to say what you mean. At best they are limited approximations.Always trying to catch you out ,trip you up. The world is Pamplona thewords are the bullls and we are the twats trying to show how brave we are.26 lousy letters in the alphabet-hardly a cornucopia, sure great things have been done with them ,but this is against the odds ,fighting the enemy, containing,constraining, merely hinting at waht you feel ,what you want to say.There is only one solution, one absolut,one truth, one way ahead ,forget words ,paper ,books ,keyboards, computer screens- the future, the truth ,is telepathy .Telepathic Poetry my friends you read it here first.Can you tell what I'm thinking , can you feel it burn , the intensity , the rage , the anger ?A picture can only paint a thousand words , telepathy is beyond words, as infinite as the cosmos. Embrace it or (creatively) die.

Dave King said...

Nope, I'm throwing in the towel. Too few words and too many meanings!

Thanks for trying Dave and I have to admit I sometimes struggle to know what the feck I'm talking about too! Writing helps me understand me- a bit.
