An Inflammation of Nouns: Savings Options

An Inflammation of Nouns (2012)
978-1-4675-4893-9

Author’s statement: “I would describe my writing as intense, philosophical, hopeful, transpersonal, challenging, and Jungian. It often adopts an element of aphorism and epigram. For me, poetry is a created texture, best experienced in the agrammatical mind. For me, the impact of poetry has a lot to do with archetypes, and allowing mind-scapes to form beautifully, by force of words. Native American tradition and world-view has certainly factored into my life and writing, which often alludes to animal spirits colliding with ‘humanimal’ realities. I am intrigued by an aesthetic paradigm that I call ‘field guide aesthetics’ which attempts to reconcile new world nomenclature, with complex spirit worlds that span greater epochs.” An Inflammation of Nouns is a sparkling compliment to Hedges’ Field Guide Aesthetics.

“Nothing At All or Something At Least”

It is usually existential, when faced with the
unbearable endeavour, to reconcile that
we are the possibility of ‘nothing at all’ within
a possibility that we are ‘something at least’.

“Start-Up Costs”

(when it comes
to typical
concerns about
time and
space,
the start-up
costs are
hard to
reconcile)

“Wild Grasses”

Wild grasses are utilitarian lines,
point A to point B survivalists;
the little cluster of love at the top
is a mess of revelry, for having
achieved
linear actualization.

“Logic and Beauty”

{symmetry
is
associated
with
beauty
and
everyone
knows
that
logic
is
beautiful}

“The God Metaphor”

{The God Metaphor
has a half-life of
two-hundred years
and from there
proceeds to
occupy an
infinite regress}
