its a night to myself and finally i am able to sit down and concentrate on my work.
tonight has drowned out the sound of static and commotion.
my task is herculean.
to compose a portfolio of my own work that i deem worthy enough. it is to sit alongside a poem that i respect and cherish.
worst of all will be the poem i have now committed myself to, entitle “From the Mouth of the Stars”. it is a multiple part epic that was spawned of a spontaneous poem that i expanded for a class assignment to write a multi section poem. it draws from multiple musical and literary influences, including the Woven Tide’s “From the Mouth of the Sun”, Brother Android’s “Scientific Satellite EP”, Bear in Heaven’s “Beast Rest Forth Mouth”, and a tall Phillip Glass of “Orion” that i was coming down on when i wrote the original poem.
im sure there was some of Italo Calvino’s “Cosmicomics” floating around in there as well.
honestly? i think maybe i just wanted to give a shout out to my favorite artists.
