Unsteady Dances with an Unsteady Partner by Same-side
Unsteady Dances with an Unsteady Partner
or "Where, Oh Where, Did My Little [God] Go?"

This was written as a semi-imitation of James Tate's "Consolations After an Affair", but as one can (hopefully) see, the piece has gone in its own unique direction.

For tWR:…

Which stanzas fit best/worst within the overall movement of the piece?

Are there any line breaks which seem out of place? Which ones?

Which images stand out in a good way? In a bad way?

What would you word differently? Why?

How do you interpret this poem?

Does there appear to be a unifying theme?

How do the two titles affect your understanding of the piece?

What do you think of Macaronic (Multi-language) Literature?

...of a different coin.
Artist | Literature
Strange is just another word for creative.
Current Residence: Back in the U.S.S.R.

Favourite genre of music: Heavy Metal

Skin of choice: Albatross

Favourite cartoon character: Calvin

Quote of the Moment:
Why did the chicken cross the Möbius band?

To get to the same side!
Random Fact: A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

A few words...

If it is true - as the Bard says - that "the lunatic, the lover, and the poet are of imagination all compact," should we treat a creative mind the same as a diseased one? Should an infatuation with the voices in one's head be considered all that dissimilar to an infatuation with the voice of one who says, "I love thee"?

Men and women throughout the ages have done "crazy" things for love and for art - self-murder, self-mutilation, and self-sacrifice being among the most common. If lunacy means losing touch with reality to the point of total malfunction, then those afflicted with the arts and with eros may have only lost touch with certain parts of reality. For the artist, one loses touch with that part of reality that fails to inspire; likewise, for the lover, it means losing touch with that part of reality that fails to evoke. Depending on the individual, this "eclipse of the heart" may drive one to create wonder, or atrocity.

Generalities aside, Shakespeare has given us much to consider with his statement.
