So this is part of my music geekiness I love music!!!
i have spent much of my adult hood chasing music, listening or in clubs.
Dreaming about it now I am turning my poetry into music.
I am entranced by the idea of bringing poetry to people who would never take it on themselves.
I want people to stumble into, become emmersed in it that they don’t really know until they have fully been saturated.
Kind of like boiling a lobster.
‘Once you learn a poem, have a poem memorized no one can take that from you it is yours’.
I believe it was poneyboy or curtis who said the above quote.
The only one I really have memorized is ” everything gold’ by Robert frost. Amazing, simple and awakened. Need I say more?
I found that one in the classic epic tale of the outsiders which I was infatuated with when I read it. .
Sadly I have a terrible memory which is horrible if you want to be a preforming poet but I don’t have time for that now.
Sooo what do I memorize? Songs.
I can recall most songs as soon as the music starts to play.
There is a muscle memory that just picks up with music.
Not only that but the vibration of sound, my movements and memories as each song has found it’s way into my life at a certain time.
So this is why I continue to work on making this kind of progression.
Because for me it is the only way.
