    Autumn was beautiful, fleeting, touched with the premonitory sorrow that I somehow came at an early age to recognize as the fundamental quality of all existence. The trees, the stones, the stars: all were consummately beautiful, and all were condemned to mutability.

    I had always been aware that the Universe is sad; everything in it, animate or inanimate, the wild creatures, the stones, the stars, was enveloped in the great sadness, pervaded by it. Existence had no use. It was without end or reason. The most beautiful things in it, a flower or a song, as well as the most compelling, a desire or a thought, were pointless. So great a sorrow. And I knew that the only rest from my anxiety—for I had been trembling even in infancy—lay in acknowledging and absorbing this sadness.

    2 excellent and very different books of poetry

    The Sleeping Beauty by Hayden Carruth My rating: 5 of 5 stars A beautiful book-length poem in which the poet explores love through the various voices and narratives of myth and contemporary life. A powerful piece that demands reading and rereading.

    You Better Be Lightning by Andrea Gibson My rating: 5 of 5 stars Andrea Gibson mines her own traumas and challenges as a queer woman in a heteronormative and misogynistic culture to find deep heartfelt beauty. This new collection further solidifies her growing reputation as a poet and performer who brings authenticity and enlightenment to the world. [I received an advanced e-galley of this book through Netgalley. The book will be released November 9.] View all my reviews

                                     My eyes sting with sweat and loveliness. And who is the Christ now, who
    if not I? It must be so. My strength is legion. And I stand up high on the wagon tongue in my whole bones to say
    woe to you, watch out you sons of bitches who would drive men and women to the fields where they can only die.

    beauty was worth its every sorrow

    ◜how much do you love me?◞  —she asked ◜enough to melt all the tigers in the world to butter.◞  —i said

    beauty was worth its every sorrow, mind’s fading or world’s ending, as darkness covered the garden that is the earth ...

    sometimes i think you are absolutely right. your rightness comes to me like the absoluteness of god. i am vouchsafed the sudden glory of your being. unequivocally. as if your body were pure intelligence there confronting me in naked indeterminacy in the afternoon. other times i think you’re nuts. what are these inflamed and torpid hieroglyphics coming out of your mouth? why don’t you go away and think it over? i meditate on this more or less continuously as i look out across the broad and rolling stockbridge valley. the farms there the remarkably individual fields in all their shapes. all their colors. loam, hay, corn, alfalfa. and the woodlots green or gray as the months evolve before me.

    permanence and change. so evident in our lives. so mysterious. and still so natural.

    you love me. i love you.

    A poem by Hayden Carruth

    Bears at Raspberry Time

    Fear. Three bears are not fear, mother and cubs come berrying in our neighborhood like any other family. I want to see them, or any distraction. Flashlight poking across the brook into briary darkness, but they have gone, noisily. I go to bed. Fear. Unwritten books already titled. Some idiot will shoot the bears soon, it always happens, they’ll be strung up by the paws in someone’s frontyard maple to be admired and measured, and I'll be paid for work yet to be done— with a broken imagination. At last I dream. Our plum tree, little, black, twisted, gaunt in the orchard: how for a moment last spring it flowered serenely, translucently before yielding its usual summer crop of withered leaves. I waken, late, go to the window, look down to the orchard. Is middle age what makes even dreams factual? The plum is serene and bright in new moonlight, dressed in silver leaves, and nearby, in the waste of rough grass strewn in moonlight like diamond dust, what is it?—a dark shape moves, and then another. Are they ... I can’t be sure. The dark house nuzzles my knee mutely, pleading for meaty dollars. Fear. Wouldn’t it be great to write nothing at all except poems about bears?

    Hayden Carruth

    Swept

    by Hayden Carruth

    When we say I miss you what we mean is I’m filled with dread. At night alone going to bed is like lying down in a wave. Total absence of light. Swept away to gone.

    Chapter 10 (Monday, July 11, 2011) - Mergers and Acquisitions

    The press release announcing Grey Enterprise Holdings’ acquisition of Seattle Independent Publishing goes out. The full four paragraph release is included at the opening of the chapter, and notes that SIP poet and performance artist Keon Kinger’s collection By the Sound was shortlisted for the Arthur Rense Prize in 2010. This is a real prize and an impossible award, since the prize is given triennially, Hayden Carruth won the award in 2008, and David Wagoner was awarded the prize in 2011.

    I actually respect this decision, as it allowed James to add the weight of an actual award without diminishing the accomplishments of actual recipients by injecting a fictional recipient into the competition (especially since it was a nod to shortlist status instead of winning the prize).

    Christian and Ana exchange emails, reminiscing about their sordid and secretive history as canoodling employer and employee.

    I think Christian bought a new plane or helicopter, but the conversation with Darius Jackson from the Port of Ephrata is too vague for me to be able to tell. It’s a purely logistical conversation, at any rate.

    Christian and Ana meet with Alondra Gutierrez for important wedding planning decisions, and Christian wants to throw all that planning away and elope to Vegas to get married. Ana says she’d be fine with that, but Christian knows he needs to give her the wedding she deserves. They go to bed, but the scene discretely ends before so much as a kiss.

    Today’s Lesson: The Arthur Rense Prize is a triennial poetry prize. It will next be awarded in 2023.

    30 Essays on The Best Words in the Best Order, 2021 Edition

    We did it. Thirty articles in just over 30 days, on many different aspects of poetry, from themes and contrasts to structure, meter, and rhyme, to metaphors and patterns, to breaking things down and building them back up, from expansive views to introspection. I hope you had a chance to enjoy at least some of the articles. If you didn’t, just a reminder that all 30 are archived on https://facebook.com/theotherpages and https://theotherpages.tumblr.com. I will comment that more of you may be Facebook users, but Tumbler is way better at indexing and presenting than Facebook. The Other Pages is also beautifully presented on Tumblr.

    Sincere thanks to Kashiana Singh and Nelson Howard Miller for their help. We were without the services of Bob and Robin this year. Nelson actually did his articles while recovering from Covid, and Kashiana while moving across the country and participating in her amazing stream of other events.

    The podcasts were a new experience for me, though Kashiana had done it before. They are archived on https://anchor.fm/steve-spanoudis.

    For the record, while tallies continue, we will probably finish up with over 12,000 reads this year, and over 1,200 reactions and comments on Facebook. The most read article featured Maria Nazos and a poem about domestic abuse. Second place was a poem by Ladan Osman on a child’s perspective of racial disparities. Third place was Kashiana’s commentary on Laila Chatti.

    This year’s pieces also focused more heavily on contemporary poets. This was educational and highly enjoyable for me, including the opportunity to listen to, meet, talk with, and even get to know some of the poets featured. Please note that the “other” Kashiana, Kashiana Sharma, does not exist. She is one of the virtual residents of The Republic of Dreams.

    Yes, we’ll probably do this again next year (“Yay! We’re being renewed for another season!”), but I think I’ll need to draft some additional editorial help.If you’d like to volunteer, let me know.

    A catalog of this year’s episodes is included below. If you’ve liked any of this, please SHARE on your favorite social media platform.

    April 28, 2021: Ode to the Unbroken World, Which Is Coming, Thomas Lux

    Ode to the Unbroken World, Which Is Coming Thomas Lux

    It must be coming, mustn’t it? Churches and saloons are filled with decent humans. A mother wants to feed her daughter, fathers to buy their children things that break. People laugh, all over the world, people laugh. We were born to laugh, and we know how to be sad; we dislike injustice and cancer, and are not unaware of our terrible errors. A man wants to love his wife. His wife wants him to carry something. We’re capable of empathy, and intense moments of joy. Sure, some of us are venal, but not most. There’s always a punchbowl, somewhere, in which floats a… Life’s a bullet, that fast, and the sweeter for it. It’s the same everywhere: Slovenia, India, Pakistan, Suriname—people like to pray, or they don’t, or they like to fill a blue plastic pool in the back yard with a hose and watch their children splash. Or sit in cafes, or at table with family. And if a long train of cattle cars passes along West Ridge it’s only the cattle from East Ridge going to the abattoir. The unbroken world is coming, (it must be coming!), I heard a choir, there were clouds, there was dust, I heard it in the streets, I heard it announced by loudhailers mounted on trucks.
