Personism

personism a manifesto

I kept eating small spoonfuls just to identify everything I could. A single eggplant that was sweet and fed us for two days. It is a way to express everything that I am feeling, as it is with everyone I know who writes poetry. However, this is not the case in this situation. Butterflies have cleared the tummy and made a home at our hearts, if only but to make room for all the really amazing meals we share together. Slowly add in your flour, continuing to mix for another minute or two til well incorporated. I will make variations of this forever.

Or simply start freezing the rinds to your whole parmesan wedges! The poem is at last between two persons instead of two pages. I do not necessarily say that I agree with this. I think it appears mostly in the minute particu1ars where decision is necessary. For a joke manifesto written in 1959, it certainly still holds true. But is it strange that I love their thinly-brothed version even more? The nostalgia of the infinite representing the greater degree of abstraction, removal, and negative capability as in Keats and Mallarmé. For instance, Saucer's heavy use of nature-oriented, romantic imagery when describing Emily imbues her character with a youth and vibrancy, aided by the setting of 'a morn in May', already causing the reader's mind to contemplate Springs themes of new life, of blooming botany.

Personism: A Manifesto

Creating these alternatives involves un-tethering the original work from its place in history by asking how could it be otherwise and what form might it take now. Simmer for 5 more minutes. You just go on your nerve. So two days later, this very simple, very earthy, very spring soup happened. Next might contain soup, and more love. I ran out of em. Academic poets from the 1940s avoided manifestos like the proverbial plague; avowedly anti-academic poets from the 1950s therefore embraced them.

O'Hara

O'Hara's best poems come off informal, almost inordinately sympathetic, charmed, especially alert to comedy, intimately privileged. An entire day, please and thank you. Eliot, cummings, Hart Crane who O'Hara loved, by the way, though no one reads him now etc. Cheap shots aside, what does this have to say to us now? Every fruit and vegetable was minutes-ago-picked. Too many poets act like a middle-aged mother trying to get her kids to eat too much cooked meat, and potatoes with drippings tears.

Add beets and let it do its thing for about 20 minutes. Poetry being quicker and surer than prose, it is only just that poetry finish literature off. Return the broth and meat into the pot and add the rice and peas, giving it a quick stir. The color of your beans should be bright and glorious. It was founded by me after lunch with LeRoi Jones on August 27, 1959, a day in which I was in love with someone not Roi, by the way, a blond.

Like the poems in the form of telephone calls, these bot-generated samples end up back between the two pages. Well, Jared, the only thing missing here is Whitman. It is in this preponderance of theory that one could find, were one so inclined, the motive and opportunity mentioned above. Glitches also connote lack of intent or agency over the effect that suggests an implicit critique of romantic individualism and subjectivity. It feels most family to me. I made pesto out of some of the basil, pistachios I found in the fridge, capers, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Having a Coke With You O'Hara and Personism

Textures, vocabularies, discourses, constructivist modes of radically different character are not integrated into a field as part of a predetermined planar architecture; the gaps and jumps compose a space with shifting parameters, types and styles of discourse constantly crisscrossing, interacting, creating new gels. It is too new, too vital a movement to promise anything. Personism, a movement which I recently founded and which nobody know about, interests me a great deal, being so totally opposed to this kind of abstract removal that is vermin on a true abstraction for the first time, really, in the history of poetry. Like it or not, when you've met someone, and especially if you like them, you almost automatically bring more to, find yourself better-disposed towards, and hence take more from, think more of, that someone's writings. Or does it mean removing yourself from the poem?.

It puts the poem squarely between the poet and the person, Lucky Pierre style, and the poem is correspondingly gratified. Let simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring often. Because of the head note, we know that it is written in jest however it is true. Pepperonis as a form should be about direct relational connection rather than words on a page. It puts the poem squarely between the poet and the person, Lucky Pierre style, and the poem is correspondingly gratified. While I was writing it I was realizing that if I wanted to I could use the telephone instead of writing the poem, and so Personism was born. Puree with an immersion blender or whatever blender you have.

Someone, preferably, who actually takes the time to say something constructive or even relevant. And all, only Whitman and Crane and Williams, of the American are better than the movies. What does he know that I don't? This is because every vegetable, cream and butter, is farm fresh. On the 5th day, the day we were set out to leave, I discovered it was their South Indian Mulligatwany. The poem is at last between two persons instead of two pages. We also avoid end rhyme and strict traditional form, as it reads as cheesy today.

There is so much going on this story from the bird, the musicians, the paranoia of the government, scientific discussions, drinking, random Navy soldiers, drugs, etc. The description of how 'rose's color strove her hue' both relates her to. I could cry while telling you how each ingredient made me feel the most comfortable in my own skin. Most major poets, dead or alive even those who refer frequently to their own lives: Wordsworth, Yeats, Rich, Lowell stand up perfectly well if you don't think much about what it would be like to meet them. We walked in the rain, too. I also had 2 peaches, 1 plum, and a handful of strawberries.
