The Motion of Poetry

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Promotion to studied fields where
words do not move
and have
no sound of sense.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Such a notion
of motiveless verse implied
when naming what poetry in motion is
when not poetry, such a notion
can be passed about the pitch without
any chance of scoring a tune
and is reversible – I have never heard
or read a poem without it.



Odd how much, including football, is described as “poetry in motion”, as if poetry itself is without motion. The latest I heard about was Beowulf – the motion picture.
