This is me at home thinking about some ideas. Honestly.
The Solus Draft.
Here is a time critical approach to poetic composition. The idea of speed writing is not new. As this is not short poetry, the length of a composition is irrelevant. The time taken to the set down the Solus Draft to publishing on the web site is the goal. There must be no revision after publication. The piece should stand as complete in the stated time frame.
This is my attempt at writing poetry in a time efficient way with recorded information made available on completion of a piece.
The recorded information is:-
- Copyrighted date.
- Place of composition/writing.
- Start time inc time zone.
- Completion time inc. time zone.
Should a piece ever be subjected to the riggers of hermeneutic analysis this information will be available to the analysist.
Turns out to be
Only a work in process,
Will Winter always follow the Fall?
Or is it all a matter of perspective?
So where is the Fall in the Deserts?
Macro or Micro
Steady Timescape or Expansionist?
Singularity or Heaven?
Ghost, God or Chance?
Who is helping with these enquiries?

Speeding to the Horizon, an Infinity Dichotomy (Pt1)
There is little I would presume to dismantle
A plate of tectonic proportions for example.
Or a disjointed phrase.
Or a lucid remark
Or stroll along a parapet wall.
There would be great risk
Of failing or falling.
Here is the trap.
There is danger should it
Ever be sprung.
It begins with choices.
Who has the choice
At the outset, the beginning,
or in the twilight, the end of a life?

Here is a hand drawn lifetime
Which I hold up to the light,
Just as it appears in reality.
It looks too much like
A troubled, drawn, mess.
Which beggars belief.
A torn strip of a B existences,
Drudged in the gloopy syrup of time,
Slow and secluded, styled and misled.
Deceived and deluded
Dumb and derided.
It is a simple, singular blip in universal time.
As the three arrows pointed out,
Insignificant, as this life is,
Most don't even make it to an event horizon.
And the case for a Timescape?
And the case for a Singularity?
And the Event Horizon?
