Internet Confusion and Response
The great Tomas Transtroemer has been awarded the Nobel Prize for his poetry http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-15200547
and then I saw this little exchange on the internet http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2011/10/06/tomas-transtromers-latest-poetry-collection-an-excerpt/tab/comments/#comment-508669
So instantly this came up in response.
On confusion over Tomas Transtroemer's Nobel award; is he dead?
So many are dead already
Unable to use words with any deep meaning or skill.
The sun standing above the autumn winds
Calls the words forward
But they are stuck in the marshes
Unheard, quagmired in fettered imagination.
Double Yay and WTF?!
Ring out from the central reservation
Of the sanitised and armcoed dual-carriageway road into winter.Hopefully I wait for the new moon.
