The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010 (Author Central)





What Be It, Anti-Poetry?

What Be It, Anti-Poetry?


The moment ordinary Poets hear that word they cringe.
Could there be a confrontational connotation?

For surely the prefix: Anti- indicates taking a stance
Against something or other. So why bother?

In actuality, Anti-Poetry is a Self-defeating exercise
Whereby the writer may fly; freed from gravitas and vanitas.

Like all transitional forms during the course of evolution
It is a missing link that bridges old world poesy and neological poetics.

Novel species shall arise from said proverbial soup!
Displayed in memoriam at wax poetry museums.

Archetypal feathers from an archeopteryx
Will give wings to flightless bards who are apteryx!

STFU Grammar Nazi!

"These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings." 

~ Colossians 2:22

 "Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.
 

The limits of my language means the limits of my world." 
~ Ludwig Wittgenstein

"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice." 

~ T.S. Eliot
 


STFU Grammar Nazi!

Language evolves through improvisation;
Lending itself to radical rearticulation.
Clarity may be the currency of communication BUT
Ludic Telos underlines its alteration!

If Grammar Nazis had their way
Poiesis would be impossible.
They wish words would never sway
Yet such changes are unstoppable ...

Neologisms are loosed into our lexicon
So often, we update dictionaries annually.
Ebonics plague many an interaction on-
Line (queue up urban music manually).

You see, a sound isn't the same as what it represents.
Even the letter isn't strict in any sense.
Leave rules to sorry fools stripped of innocence.
Expressions may fit situations (it depends)!
