Here is the link to James’ art. We like his lesson of proportions. Blocking in the figure is a technique of the impressionists.
Issa’s Untidy Hut The Poetry Blog for Lilliput Review is a great resource and The Poetry Blog is a good description. They are the real china on the table and we are proud to use a new Google Plus page to showcase Robert, Issa, Lilliput, and a new way of syndicated posting via Google Plus.
Consciousness – She iterates the pattern,
spatial configurations in tones of colour,
ordered, deciphered, arranged
to the grammar of the eye,
a natural process
of special attraction in emergent photo synthesis
seeking a habouring organism.
Eyes of the drosophila fly
containing much of the same DNA,
only see the spectroscopic
horizons as myriad shards
in shadowy cascades, no colour appears
to their vapid disseminations,
nor to the octopus on the ocean floor that emotes
the undulations of those inaccessible depths
to approach the emergent waves:
But we are drawn only to her colours,
arranged like flowers on a window sill
of curtain days & potted existence.
Say we are not Sui Generis,
(the cause of yourself)
we are homeostatic holographs,
dimensions in spectral parallel membranes
& our near eternal process to err,
& along such a line we pass time in & time out,
but could we not cheat the butterfly effect?
The power line of that variable was always decisive,
the locusts came & there was famine,
despite the overtures of our sympathetic magic,
despite the magical animation of existence itself,
we are its creatures that want to drink its blood,
it cares not so much for us though,
having rarer pursuits than ice & fire,
folding & unfolding
predicated on its own unpredictability of the determined image
it must become,
existence, it too is not Sui Generis.
So i have found you now,
close & must keep you close
& mix you in the hidden elements,
& from the other side
watch your apparitions.
Wonder why, the blur of mind,
or what is known as mind,
in its dream & wake,
its trail of words,
its fleeting impressions.
Creatures of the world unite.
Photographs of happy moments,
emoted now, but not felt as before,
in the uncertainties of memories,
transits of existence.
The carnivorous & herbivorous,
steady beat of homeostasis,
the blue planet seen from afar,
feeding on stars,
a point in phasal space i suppose,
a special attraction,
a dazzling flash of fractal in infinity,
an iterating pattern approaching infinite variation,
within, within, within,
with us as some anomalous contingency called life
creating our finite objections.
