RE: Woodsman Rafael Smith

Isn't that what art and poetry are supposed to do? Something so simple that
plays tricks on so many people is the most profound type of art.

EE Cummings, thats what she said
Two Little Pigs
Laying In My Bed

Blanket for two
What what
No Blanket for one

I used to suck my thumb
Wait, I think I did
Cause I used to be a kid

Now I am grown


Now, See?.... does that sound amazing and profound? No, it doesn't. Cause
its just a slightly drugged idea like the original. It's honestly amazing
people interpret these things so profoundly just because they use words in
the incorrect order for us, users of modern english. So we say ooooh, look
at these words all backwards, thats like old literature, that must be
profound and mean alot cause some dead or almost dead dude wrote it. I'm
sorry, thats just how I feel about something like this. I think I'm pretty
artsy and understanding of art but poetry like this and paintings that are
just paint splattered everywhere just seem like the biggest trick people
have somehow ever been able to pull on people, it boggles my mind. So I
guess that in itself is the only thing that makes this poem interesting to
me. Wow, there you go. Somehow I spun this into being positive comments.

As children we don't know who we are. All we have is our dreams which will
eventually make us into knowers of whatever we think we know when we are
adults. As children the horizons and ideas of ourselves are not yet
limited by the fulfilment (or not) of our dreams. As adults we have
already created our identities which are displayed in our life actions. It
is a splendrous time to be young and to not know who we are and to have the
identities forgeable before us.

Two little whos is a short yet meaning full poem. It tells the story if how
who little children not unlike Hansel and Grettle. they came to the hill to
receive a pale of water and came back getting hurt and not having any water
at all.

To read a grea amount of imagery seems inane, of course their always pairs
of males and females in any
society since recorded time. The fact that is the most stiking is
implication is that the the male and female who are uninitiated from the
beginng to the end that is the important point.

This poem reminds me the biblical passage of Adam and Eve. The innocent
love may be read as a pure love before the acquired experience (a sort of
experience as described by William Blake) and free of any feeling of
fault. A transcendental love that hovers over the flesh limitations.

I wonder if this language reminds anyone else of Yoda
of StarWars.
