Come find the poem in person, but if you can't do that I'm posting it here for my patrons for a minimum pledge of one dollar a month. Feel free to share these poems if you'd like to post them in the physical. It requires legal sized paper to print out but you can cut up paper bags, old blueprints or other recycled paper to that size (8.5 x 14) to print them on in your own printer. If water soluble ink, then keep that in mind where you post them. (Continued.)
I have more poems on the way. I'm experimenting with rhyme and traditional prosody forms in new ways, which I think the general public will be more apt to interact with even as I experiment and push the edges of the literary paradigm. I have a Crypto-poem commission by entrepreneur and pioneer Will Nathan still in the works, a "Bissociation" poem in the works from a 5 dollar a month patron on Patreon by the artist and poet Sergio Lepore, and others. I ask for a minimum of 120$ to sponsor a poem but here on patreon you can get that at half price at 60$ for just 5$ a month, and I'll even shoot you a little Thought Dragon drawing as a bonus.
I was also working on a long ambitious piece titled the Lavender Vortex blues, sponsored by local historian Gary Dillard. This is just pure fun, using language from mining terms documented by Richard W. Graeme the 3rd to create extreme metaphors verging on absurdity, Though in my opinion, that ambiguity can allow for others to experience their own synchronicity with the poem at some point. It's not something easily measured. I have added both poems as PDFs for your reading, or find them around Bisbee stupid to bulletin boards and telephone poles.
The Concentrators was sponsored by international (and local) architect Ben Lepley, and is potentially controversial. I'm not sure. It calls for some significant Bisbee landmarks to be re-purposed instead of destroyed, as Freeport claims it will be doing. Research for both these poems was done at The Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum library. Thank you everyone for supporting the Bisbee Poetry Normalization Project (BPNP), also supported by the Bisbee Arts Commission, and the individual sponsors. Make Poetry Normal Again!
