Bemsha Swing

The trail will turn a bit to wander amongst some blogs found once I set up a Technorati search for "Dodge Poetry". This one, Bemsha Swing, by Jonathan Mayhew who writes that this blog is
Home of the "David Shapiro Fan Club." The "International Ron Padgett Society." The "Church of Clark Coolidge." The "Friends of Jess Mynes." Your source for warm positive feelings about Antonio Gamoneda, Morton Feldman, Thelonious Monk, Nada Gordon, Gary Sullivan, Joseph Ceravolo, Barbara Guest, and Minor Poetry of the Kansas School.
Jonathan writes:
There are a small number of people who not only have the insight but can actually express it in meaningful ways to those on the other side. You know when you are in the zone of insight; it's unmistakable.

Of course, once I put this model in writing it no longer seems valid to me. That's what blogging is all about.

Jonathan asks:

If you took away one poet, would poetry be the same?

How would you answer Jonathan? Click on over to Bemsha Swing and answer the question.

If poetry and music are your thing, you'll consider adding Bemsha Swing to your RSS Reader of choice.
