The Song of 81 Poems


The "Song of 81 Poems" is a work in progress, an experiment in weaving poetry.

The works may be viewed on my blog, "Ravenofferings" on Wordpress, or you may access any of the completed poems from the grid of links below.

When finished, it will consist of 81 poems, structured echoes woven multidimensionally from "Muse Poems I", which were composed between 2005 and 2009 as part of a tantric art work which I've called "The Tracing Project".

Each of those 81 poems resulted from a collaborative painting with a model, who served as a companion in a ritual of poetic 'listening', and helped in the composition of poetry by choosing words at random, listening for the sounds they made, and putting them in order on a piece of cardboard. Each line was composed before moving to the next.

The ritual was directed at eliciting a mythos that I theorized exists uniquely in every human being alive, and so could be contacted, and given reign to 'compose' subconscious content.

My work is described more completely here. The 'Tracing Project" paintings may also be viewed as a slideshow.
