have dreams come to promenade for you
haberdashery of auguries pleading
have seeds inserted by a thumb
cracked the spine on the book of leading
has the din of voices endless needing
become the same in every language?
it has loomed this way since i began
and now the light to you comes bleating

has the din of voices endless kneeding - never more.
 — Meep


will phew do? probably not. damn.

any reference to blake?
i mean am i blind or am i reading fury?

i have no idea about the meaning of the content straight off
but the emotion is palpable
more than palpable. it leapt off the screen
[i typed scream instead of screen before editing]
that palpable.

i know a tyler.

phew is good. but as gnormal has eloquently said, good, repeated five times reveals its true nature- boring.

not sure about the 'james blunt' comment. not sure how my surname came up.
 — hank

oh, yes, blake. initially dedicated to blake and kundera.
 — hank

took it out because italics didn't look good with poem.

You can get a lot of good ideas looking at a wallnut can you not?
 — Meep

well thats really something.

l2 sticks out as the only surreal line.  as the only one, it feels out of place.  the poem is more approachable without it.

i dont think you knead to modiy the spelling of kneading.  "endless needing" rings clear.

the shift from talking to the reader, to suddenly addressing yourself ("i") has a very nice drama.  i naturally read a pregnant pause into it, and of course the timing is perfect because im the one timing it right.  but it only works so well because you set it all up.

i twice read loomed.

i understand that the you in the first stanza is not the you l8.  but i dont know if i understand correctly.  i realize it's a completely diffent sentence, but what if the bleedin light comes FROM you?

i darent go into interpretation.   but it sure reads nicely.  i like how the bleating voices and the din of light echo each other.

i have a crush on a boy named tyler in my class

I like the poem, but I don't get it...my interpretation is lost.
 — unknown

i cant believe you isolated 'loomed'.
will think about spelling of 'kneading'.
 — hank

on my scratchsheet, loomed was 'loomed'. changed to 'bloomed' upon rereading.
amazed that you read twice loomed.
fucking hell.
 — hank

This is obviously several cuts above. Those who don't get it, meh on you.

i don't know where i got screaming fury from.
must have been a roll on from whatever i commented on before.
or maybe i was boxed.
you were sweet to ignore it. blush.

and ooh. pat on the back for me. for getting blake.
i NEVER get references EVER

the edits make all the difference.
all the difference. really.
lovely cadence.
[it's my catchphrase today]

you have inspired me to rhyme.
