POETRY STILL LIVES IN THE 518

Yes, and in fact, there’s a HUGE Poetry Scene and a Poetry Open Mic happening almost everywhere in the 518, Capital District area and that scene unknown to many has been going on for quite a few years. Decades in fact. This area’s writing and poetry scene is rich in its history & legacy and unless you’ve actually ever been to a local poetry open mic or event then you are missing out on something truly great which is area poets & writers sharing their words, voices, and work with others …

Let Poetry Be Poetry: R.M. Engelhardt On The Nation’s Recent Apology

cropped-c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_finders-hitting-old-typewriter-keys-animated-gif2.gifThe Half Dead Poet Review:

The host of The Troy Poetry Mission R.M. Engelhardt let’s his views & thoughts be known on the recent false accusations against the Nation magazine and a young but well meaning poet who simply wrote a poem in regards to the plight of homelessness in America.

Writing and poetry is all about characters, narrative and advocating for the rights & beliefs of all, not just some writers and the meaning of 21st century poetry started a very long time ago which has apparently become “lost in translation” to many journalists and magazines riding the wave of popularity. Poetry has never died. Never will.

Being A Poet

Picsart2017-07-11--19-33-00“Being a poet isn’t something you are or choose. It’s something that happens to you at irregular intervals and with no guarantee it will happen again. You can disregard it when it does happen but you can’t turn it on. All you can do is wait.”

~ Margaret Atwood

POET ?

POET ?

I smoke in the ashes
Of my own myth

Follow the voices in my
Head that say “Record these
Moments”

Become another soothsayer
Of another century, another
Shadow treading light

There are thousands
Like me

Thousands searching
Everyday

Perhaps for God
Perhaps for themselves

Perhaps for no one

For they live and re-live
Words, language

Alone

And call themselves

Poets
