The book is in five sections; the first section discusses the creative process. And it offers that notion of the line, the spider web, as creation, and those slender lines in the air are lines of poetry, but also, of course, the line of semen connecting the two lovers.
The pronouns and articles, prepositions, often remain in the background. Where do you place yourself? In both poems, those characters function as versions of the narrator, aspects of personality. Although the overall excavation involved almost a million cubic metres of stone, there is no archaeological evidence revealing where that quantity of stone went, and no evidence of the work.
I remember when I wrote this poem, having gone to bed with my wife and making love, then getting out of bed somewhere near midnight and going into my study to write for a few hours, and the poem was pretty much completed; I think I wrote for three hours or so and had the outline of the poem and some of the language down, then got up the next morning and started working with it again and allowed the poem to shape itself, and it came rather quickly.
I saw Bountiful, especially that second section, functioning as a Bildungsroman, considering the sources of this poetry, what the process involves and what the process has to offer to one who trusts it and engages it, the trust that the language itself is sufficient and will start to burgeon.
Despite decades of research, very few answers have emerged to explain the enigma of the Longyou caves. I like that idea of switching around some of our characters from poems and stories, from our lives. This begins the dilemma of pivotal decisions in the cave.
And of course, if the caves were just for mining, why create such intricate decorations on the walls, columns and ceilings? Not so with gay men.
All of the 36 grottoes are distributed across an area of only one square kilometre. But we tend to forget that we need to make use of these elements, and I was trying to move outside of myself a bit instead of being I, I, I, and work with the woman who is in "Singles," for example.
Our ancient ancestors have achieved many wondrous things, but this truly is an unexplained mystery. The fourth section ranges a bit, begins with politics and Zenist sensibility, and uses those general subjects to focus on creatures from which we generally shy away, leeches and ticks and moray eels, but with a sensibility that means to find their worth, means to understand that they have purpose or, as I say in "Ticks," that they lend us purpose.
And it offers that notion of the line, the spider web, as creation, and those slender lines in the air are lines of poetry, but also, of course, the line of semen connecting the two lovers. John Logan did that in some of his later poems, and I found that was a way of talking that seemed natural, and in doing that I was able to expand the lines and not keep to those tight stanzas.
The task seems to be incumbent upon him to do that.
No traces of construction Despite their size and the effort involved in creating them, so far no trace of their construction or even their existence has been located in the historic record. You know what I want to mention, too?
Whitman and Williams were contemporaries for a couple of years, Williams born inthe year the Brooklyn Bridge went up, and when did Whitman die? So I grabbed Larry, and we were standing on the steps of this funeral parlor in New York City, and all of a sudden this guy comes slouching up the steps, wearing a long coat, and Larry says, "Joe, Joe, what are you doing here?
I had been trying to write "Hummingbirds" in that same sort of style. He always needs to find a way to create something new for Himself; He gets tired of the solitude at times, the solitude of the artist in these poems, and He sort of bumbles His way along, as we all do.
That woman seems, in some ways, to be a character from one of his stories; I think of Ray when I read this poem. So that was deeply ingrained, and the imagery in those books comes out of that education and imposed religious sensibility. However, mining operations would have required equipment and apparatus to extract the rocks and transport them.Poet of the Month: Michael Waters.
