Joe Barton Topics
You can never step into the same book twice, because you are different each time you read it.
Writing can sometimes be exploitative. I like to take a few steps of remove in order to respect the privacy of the subject. If readers make the link, they have engaged with the poem.
Who is the ideal reader? God only knows.
We are comfortable with the fact that we cannot know personally what happened in the world before we were born, yet we are uncomfortable with the notion that we will stop engaging with time at some point in the future.
To me many short poems read and write like beginnings that simply whet my appetite; I want to get over that.
The reader's challenge is to replicate the experiment by reading the poem and to draw their own conclusions.
The point of an experiment is not to arrive at a predetermined end point, to prove or disprove anything, but to deliver a poem that reveals much about the process taken.
The poet must decide not to impose his feelings in order to write without sentimentality.
The experiment of the poem is mostly intuitive. I write the first draft, pulling in the various elements that interest me, in the hope that their being combined will lead to some kind of insight.
The community of poets I belong to is not as close as it used to be, if only for the fact that our lives have become busier: jobs, children, and the like.
Sometimes poetry is inspired by the conversation entered into by reading other poems.
Some readers allow their prejudices to blind them. A good reader knows how to disregard inappropriate responses.
Reading should be a repeat performance.
Poets have to be sensitive to their audience, but it does not mean that they censor themselves. I realise my audience is diverse. Some will read with empathy and curiosity while others will take offense.
Poets can't resist the dramatic pull of their lives and so inevitably write autobiographical verse.
Poetry is but another form of inquiry into the nature of phenomena, using with its own unique procedures and tools.
No poem is easily grasped; so why should any reader expect fast results?
My obsession with time informs my poetry so completely it is hard for me to summarize it. We want time to pass, for new things to happen to us, we want to hold on to certain moments, we don't want our lives to end.
Most victims of my autobiographical verse are either far too polite, remarkably understanding unaware that I have written poems about them.
In the past, poetry came in the form of spells and chants used to effect change.
