Vulnerability: a small poetics

Declaiming before the world, unquiveringly; nullified if there is not an outside-the-self; rise above for art is the once-more mantra; the poet does not matter, not in her particulars; the person, in that moment is irrelevant; just transcend the angst-past, the aching day, those scars, that awkward-always burden of unreal image; the garb is a shell; the nude a construct; the naked an ideal; a poet’s voice, stance is but a form of witnessing; let me be; let me be channel; in that instant, project & resonance & transfix; there must be a raw to it all in the smooth; a singing of inner; the poem is waiting for you to be completely absent within your entirety of presence.
