New Poetry by Jonathan Beale

Birth of the bridging epoch


‘Everything is purged from this painting but art; no ideas have entered this work’, 1966 – 68, John Baldessari

This sprinkled form Jacques de la Villeglé
‘Angers’ 59 the shell was about to break and burst….
Within this conscience manipulation

This footprint to forge a path.

The ever decreasing decade – it speeds - on –
Crashing down as a pinball

Perceptions – dimensions from God to Giving Birth*
To the Arena.** To a new ethic another morality –
The politics grow evermore malleable identical to the core

Spaces grow into forms and naming becomes necessity…
by necessity. As the images grows into the fabric of society
from the whole sequence of Fibonacci one boby, one head,

two arms, Plica semilunaris***, five fingers….

In this strange mirror – the stress crack –
as it creates – reforms and cracks again –

as the artist becomes a philosopher breeding questions
from the title-less, strange, peculiar, abstract, obtuse.

as originality bred by gin and other elixirs. As too many
seeing to find take the wager ‘drugs are a bet with your mind.’°
Win. Lose what remains

Miles Davis’ discography II an effigy from Jean-Michel Basquiat
Stuns a bemused world a door opens.

All the things I know but of which I am not at the moment thinking 1.36P.M; June 15 1969, 1969 °°
