If I ever finish this poem I'll go to sleep.

I'm thinking about/working on an essay about the idea that nowadays, we suffer collectively from an adherence to something I'm calling "The Cult Of Guaranteed Results" -- a mistaken belief that in all cases doing X automatically leads to Y, and that when Y is a desirable result, there is always an X to be found...it has infiltrated all spheres of human endeavor to some degree. Adherence to the cult leads in some cases to an abhorrence of the approach that suggests "let's do X and see what happens;" an approach found in science and art most frequently. Not fully fleshed out yet, but getting there. Anyone know of any reading along these lines?

If you're so inclined, I've got a blog that's a running publication of all my poems as they're written and ready for public view. Feel free to read, subscribe, etc. And if you like it, share the link! It's got a compendium of older poems, my show schedule, links to the Duende Project's Reverbnation site, and of course the poetry...

I just don't feel like working on poems today...which makes me all the more determined to get something done. Waiting till you "feel like it" or till you're "inspired" is for amateurs.
