indeed, among her several premises the most inarguable is that if you want to save your sanity you’d better learn how better to behave.
She’s happy to point out the myriad absurdities with which you cram your psychic cave – and if she claims to offer therapy at all it surely must at heart be cognitive:
revealing all the fixes faulty thinking gets you into: sinking you into despair – therefrom to summon up new strategies, with her, to live your life – in her intensive care. But ah, she’s got you there.
Quivering in revelations not entirely your own, you’re prone, she knows, to other more mysterious investigations – to be pursued with one immensely secret aim:
to underscore that this is her, not your, mind-fucking game. You’re
amass around each other at the end: troglodytic nuns who find, to leave behind, one last expression of experience they might extend to the conundrum coming after:
enduring echo of an enigmatic laughter – alluring strangeness – proprietary graces from their priory – seductive whiff of existential estuary – swift demonstration of the basis for the theory that they were necessary.
three exasperating aspects of your latest psychic schism clomp around and dance and yell until you think you’ll lose your mind. Which is, of course, absurd since they amount to all the mind you currently can find – and they’re
not going anywhere. You think sweet thoughts: perhaps they’ll sense you care and they’ll stop being raucous. But they keep up the ruckus. “Don’t like it? Fuck us.” It’s gone from worse to worst. You think you’ll burst. And yet you don’t. You guess you won’t.
I write roughly one poem a day. This blog is a continuation of a series of poem depot websites I'd also had through google, but which seem now to have filled up with my stuff to the point where I can't edit or add another page.
So here I am. Since April 1, 2009 I've been adding drawings, one a day. To see them fuller size left-click on the drawing - and voila.
To get an idea of who I am, google on "Guy Kettelhack."
To see poems I've written previous to the ones in this poem depot, google on Guy Kettelhack + Act 2 (or just Guy Kettelhack + poetry): for kind unsolicited observations about my work by photographer Rick Shupper: google Guy Kettelhack + Holtermann Design LLC. (I'd provide links but they don't seem to stick here.)
thanks for stopping by.
