"For Better and For Worse"
Writing a poem is similar to the quick sketches I make in a sketchbook or on scrap paper.
I take an informal approach and do not follow a particular style. I write to save ideas.
A sketch has an immediacy to it. It could be enhanced with additional time. But my initial push to make the sketch...to write a poem, is not about making it feel finished.
When you read my poetry, it's as if you are spending time in my house. It's often in a state of mild disarray, but that doesn't stop me from spending time with others. And once the place is picked up, the stacks of stuff look neater, but it's still not highly polished. Sometimes a polish only disguises the contents. My home, art and poetry are entwined.
I regularly add new as well as older poems to Zeorlinart.com. Look for the two small circles on the lower left side of my website front page. One links to a featured poem, the other leads to a photograph.
Your comments are welcomed but never expected in order to read my poetry.
