I could see Keats writing something like that in a letter to his brother George :)

Making a list and checking it twice....NAMING is the first thing [well, perhaps the second "First thing, let's kill all the lawyers."] poets do. "Doing a filthy pleasure is, and short." -Ben Jonson
There are some real "worts" on my list. I think of the list as being the list of contents as written on the bottom of the back jacket of a specialized herb guide [in tiny tiny typeface]. Imagine that there was a color plate drawing of each of the "worts". The piece is one of a series. I have a list of clients for an ad/publicity agency. I have a list of ships sunk by an imaginary WWII submarine.

Counter-feit: made against. And the poet is a maker.
Are you prepared to meet your maker? as a Clergyman, somewhere, says every Sunday morning...

Redan, your description sort of reminds me a bit of "found poetry", which is something our English department did a few years ago. The object is to just go out into the world and. . . well. . . find poetry in it, not so much in the sense that you see something inspiring and write about it, but that you see words, for example, on a sign and that becomes your poem. You take something ordinary and forgetable and turn it into literature :D

It seems that your idea is to take this same idea a step further and invent what those words would be; you imagine that ordinary setting and put the words in yourself. It's a very fun, creative idea! :D

let's face it, redan...some of the most intelligent literary people of all time "made up" their own words and/or phrases...ie.) Shakespeare and Ben Johnson. So, it's an erudite literary exercise, as well. :wink:

So it's poetry then - I thought it was a shopping list :lol:

Just kidding - I'm a bit puzzled that's all - I hope you are not offended by my comments redan - it's just a bit left-field for me :?
