My latest post for National Poetry Month... #NPM15
"Persimmon" by Robert Rauschenberg (1964). Taken in the Art Institute of Chicago... by ME! The "male gaze" is an important concept. However, the phrase often diminishes the sense of power held by the person being gazed at. Beauty and social hierarchy has its privileges, and its nuisances. "The Once-Over" by Paul Blackburn from the late 1950s holds that sense nicely. "Stirring dull roots with spring rain" alludes to "The Waste Land" ...

With race & the struggle for identity on the national mind, my last post for this National Poetry Month 2015 - the funny & insightful "Wanda Why Aren't You Dead" by Wanda Coleman.
Anyone who clings to the tow rope of self as we climb - as circumstances and others flit and swirl around to make you change, which of course is everyone - can relate to "Wanda Why Aren't You Dead". This poem is already great, patters, vernacular, evocative of a variety of voices.

Good tip, Google.

I am seldom incorrect, but usually eager to be proven wrong. So, I am the often-correct Bruce.
