soliloquy verbalisation re/of anthea slade’s ’’’true grit avatar’’

so many things i hear will now occur
recur in rhyme time often o’er again
repetatively in fact holding her
firm close ‘sthough ’tween target/esteemation
as my arrows splice those mid on target
they are made for my investigation
methinks there’s much more investigation
then is thought ‘’by yr philosophies
horatio’‘, i am hamlet still, alone
my circumstances other than the play
the play other no doubt than is history
is in fact different from other hams
for far more than my hams wrought i the role
nothing in fact but h’ eyes: mind; ditto
says plays play best/first on floors in h’ mind
and i am h’ choice of hamlet / i think
h’ directs many verssions of hamlet
many too are h’ female version poems
all linked to soul and self, autobio s
yet not about h’self h’, says, that…sex!
and i know ‘tis no way they’re about me
leaving an other or a projection
of whom h’/how creates who/to luv h’
how do i hamlet love ophelia?
how i hamlet love ophelia on stage,
= i luv her also otherly;
pre/post stage as well as her/my/our place
(place of course be where e’er we be)
sacred: secret: private: no one’s business?
how i love ophelia, she a mind thing?
since the play plays in h’ mind / so in mine?
‘tseems how i love’s how i am to be loved?
maybe so thinking so allow it thought?
someone i will so love to so love me?
i shall search players to act my hamlets
arrange them on chessboards like g. b. shaw
i will write my own plays instead / as well
i will take my steps / trace my love / walk on
as my arrows shoot/splice target my goal
let my love at least, as, persist to me
yes we will more than open sesame

    My oh my Judd this is fabulous. So many layers of meaning . And those famous juxtapositions that bring life, philosophy and Hamlet together. Thank you for this beautiful soliloquy of my portrait True Grit. I will read many times.

  • thank you for the fever i grew to feel writing it; chilly drops as they fell: called it, creativity;
    feel some glowing feels wiping them off (wonder if it feels dif than sweat when two who so
    fever sweat hug than ordinary sweat from working): was alone while writing watching holmes
    and that asian girl ch 10 / 8.30 sundays perth; mum; am with her, now; in an other room, 91
    yrs old: heard from no one to take me in, even all the books were already destined to be
    locked in mum’s garage; worse part was seeing the two truckloads of bks writing mags
    cassettes videos letters photos cuttings pencils pens paper books full of writing i could not
    locate in time: good news that as i went to work passing the shute dropping my stuff into the
    trolley if not boxedful thrown from up top, i spied in good condition still james joyce’s
    ‘’stephen hero’‘, another copy but the first bk i bought from a secondhand bkshop, here;
    you’re very specal too, cause you do stuff that makes me want to write, which not too many
    others do, so, good luck in all things!
