What is poetry?

Echoes of William Blake "The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom." The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

bp nichol. The Martyrology Book II.

oh fuck it's raining

stick my hand into the sea

that's poetry
it's a peculiar combination : sea, rain, hand. peculiar, cuz it's poetry. but note the syntagm: rain, hand, sea, poetry: something falls, something reaches, something crashes its waves into something else.

And so for day 1361
