A shakeup is essential for the purposes of transformation (Vladimir Mayakovsky).
The process of training your ear to capture the chaotic energy of the moment in a poem is sometimes called organic poetry, where composition is an occasion of experience or experiment in consciousness. An entertaining workshop for serious writers of all levels of experience seeking a new approach to composition. Including sound from interviews with poets of this tradition (McClure, Myles, Rothenberg, Ginsberg, Waldman, others); lively discussions & writing exercises designed to help the act of writing be exhilarating revelation of content.
