Further Auditory Responses In Appledore

"As far as consistency of thought goes, I prefer inconsistency." - John Cage.

Sounds And Poetry Are One. (2)

Finding ways to express sound
is the biggest challenge.
To merely tape record
the time period
in which the poem was made
is not good enough.

That would not be
expressing the moment
in any new or
exciting way.
It would just be a recording
of what appears
to be there,
hanging on the surface
of a wall
of hidden sounds.

The randomness of sounds
excite me too.
It's like opening up
a can with no label:
'What am I going to get this time?
Is it edible?'

A once in a lifetime experience?

Both, the sounds
and the image
are forever tied
to a perticular time...
and space.
