Poetry, Reality TV And Rebellion

Ezra Pound was one of the most original and influential poets of the 20th century. Not only did he point out new directions for poetry with his own trailblazing verse, he helped promote important modernist writers such as T S Eliot and James Joyce. Now for the bad news. By the time the second world war broke out, Pound had become a fascist sympathiser as well as an anti-semite, or someone who hated jews. He made broadcasts on Italian radio promoting fascism. Pound was arrested in 1945 for treason against his country, America. He spent over a decade in a mental hospital, discredited, yet a source of inspiration for poets everywhere, many who travelled to his hospital to speak with him  …

They indeed were comrades of the gods,

The fathers found the hidden light
And with true prayer brought forth the dawn.

“Books bend space and time. One reason the owners of those aforesaid little rambling, poky secondhand bookshops always seem slightly unearthly is that many of them really are, having strayed into this world after taking a wrong turning in their own bookshops in worlds where it is considered commendable business practice to wear carpet slippers all the time and open your shop only when you feel like it.”

~  Guards! Guards! – Terry Pratchett 

MEMENTO

Better to feel

(Than be)

Blood rushes thru veins
And the heart beats,

Only one-day to complete it’s duty

While eventually earth and gods shall all come crashing down

And kingdoms & civilizations fade.

And so please, I ask you only this;

That when I leave to let me take these
Few things with me;

The moon, the sun and the stars,

And the small traces of light which
Once reflected in your eyes

That I can no longer see
