sub-title: 'Prisioners of Prejudice' (Full View)

- In many cultures and societies, the fear of new art forms and/or traditional Surrealist forms prevents those forms from being shown - Art is seen as a threat to the Status Quo and 'established' pedagogues. While the Renaissance of Fantastical, Surrealist and Visionary Art seems to continue and advance, far beyond Breton's own expectations, onto a  worldwide stage, with numerous group and individual shows in New York, etc., many rural mid and midwest geographical areas in America, refuse to accept or show Surrealism. The greatest of those artists have simply been ignored, unless they, also, CONFORM, to the status of what 'surrealism' is supposed to represent, according to the percepts of gallery representation and home decor.

- where does the fall sunrise


On the lighter side

of the EDGE of the MOON where

It's Notion Can't be SEEN

Where the cheapest melody and the larger


his shadow

As he asks for more and more and more . . .


Just this side of the other shore . . . -

'The belief that the deepest of Melody pours out of the smallest of daily experiences - Ivan Goll

Poetry site under construction requires Key to Access

The idea that every 'act' Reveals an unknown or unconscious motive resulting in a corresponding

'sequence' of unconscious or otherwise 'subconscious' motives, artifices or acts and even consequences.  The principality and simultaneous denotation of PURE Thought as a creative disruption of meaning, whereby the often ordinary connotation of words, objects and situations (melo-dramatic, contrived or sincere) shifts onto another place of the fantastic not unrelated to its original exponent, yet still manages to infiltrate the field of the infinitude as an inferential reality.  Similar to a dreamstate that discloses something otherwise 'HIDDEN' to the 'dreamer' . . .

Poetics published in UK and USA - Literary Journals TW#4 1994 UK, Gypsy and Gypsy Anthology summer and Winter issue, etc.. Anthology 'The Silence Within', etc..
