Practicing Poetry

I open a drawer marked POEMS

Maybe: POTENTIAL, PAST, POLTERGEISTS

Prepare particles & pieces

Pull out Memory like Potter’s pensieve

“One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one’s mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one’s leisure. It becomes easier to spot patterns and links, you understand, when they are in this form.”

Then pray for poetry.
At least prepare: pad, paper, pencil.

Pacing.

Pacing.

 

Pacing.

Then POP!
Poem!
Pouring profusely!

Perfecto!

Poem, ©2016, Jen Payne, National Poetry Month, 21. Inspired by Suddenly This Overview by Peter Fischli (1952) and David Weiss (1946-2012), a series of 250 small sculptures of unfired clay, addressing three main themes: imagined moments from the lives of famous people, popular opposites, and everyday objects; quote from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling.
