#108

September 26, 2011 § 3 Comments

Take the ordinary thing and make it
Extraordinary – or
At least a little less
So ordinary – the decent poet can.
But take the thing by nature already
Exceptional, and make it
Understandable – or
At least a little less
Incomprehensible,
Make the world fit on paper
In a way it didn’t before fit between our hands –
Then he is phenomenal

Here are links to two examples:
Sarah Kay
Gabriel Gadfly

Visit each of their sites linked above and click Poetry. Watch a few (or ALL) of their pieces on their sites or on YouTube – you will be floored.
