Poetry

I used to write poetry.

I’m talking mostly decades ago.

at my ages, that could be any of manywhen

a little cummings in that last line.

Been digging Good Poems, selected by Garrison Keillor.

The poem for my last post came to me as I set the book down and got back to work. The OPML Editor was open, and it’s a shitload faster to write with than WordPress’ own editor, so I blogged it. Bing! justlikethat.

It might seem a bit out of character, but I have lots of those.

And many more left to write.

    Have you ever tried a technique of transcribing great poems by the hand until they become natural to you. I learned that great trick by one legendary copywriter. I used the same technique on my blog at http://www.dominikbjegovic.com
