Constellation (n.) : a pattern of stars recognized and named by humans
A pattern drawn between stars in an attempt to fill the sky with narrative . A way to imply the importance of a relationship or body without actually mentioning a deity's name . It's tough to find a patch of sky that isn't filled with various sizes of dippers . A hint at illumination . though the source may have died long before we recognized it . The urge to find science beautiful merely because we can't explain it . A chaos we choose to see as compass
I'm compiling the Terrible Poets' Thesaurus by reading poems by unfamiliar writers and jotting down unusual word choices. Once I find a term three times, I attempt to define it by deconstructing it as it appears to me in the context of the poems in which they're used, which are unlikely to be the way the authors intended them.

This page is where the content from previous poetry blogs have been condensed. It's not on the menu, since most of these projects are over, or on hiatus, but the posts are still here to peruse.
