- Modernity -

...At the Shore, zoneyed
hyperspantechnic aerobes
seek treasurefiner-

metal detectives,
hopefilled, as high-tech fishmen
at Igloos of beer

ponder the dearth?, Nay!
of paille tressed, bespectacled
easy-easelers

at hungry palettes
and the sketchmasters who're
ignobly absent!

Is ignobly a word? If so, I'd love to know what it means!

Hi Heidi - Yes, it connotes "not (ig) Noble," as in "ignonimity," or "ignominious;" glad you responded to my Work -   H.e.m.

On first read, I like the energy and feel the rush of the scene -- but I need to pull out a dictionary to get at the meaning. Great that the reader can glide on sound and rhythm!

I just loved the "hyperspantechnic aerobes" a line to be be played with until the imagination takes flight.  And those robotic inquisitors of crime (off duty presumably) fishing the sand as fruitlessly as those that fish the water.  Nice images that taste of sand dusted sandwiches and a blustery warm breeze.  Alas, I am unsure why the sketchmasters are ignobly absent - but I feel the loss.

PS. I once stood on a white sand beech not far from Pensecola. I went there again today.

f - I do not why "they" are "in absentia" either, (or maybe I do), but I "feel the loss" more than I can ever know, or express... what can I say? to One whom coins, "robotic inquisitors of crime" - you are beautiful!  In the Paint -   H.e.m.

I think it's very beautiful in a Shakespeare-three-witches way or possibly J.R.R Tolkein. That is certainly the impression I get. Whenever I read your poetry I always envisage old hags in swirly capes dancing around a cauldron and reciting spells (in the nicest possible way as I absolutely love Shakespeare). The problem is it gives me a headache trying to understand it. I think there is a reason that the bard is a bit redundant nowadays, most people don't have the attention span to work out what the hell he's trying to say. Which is a shame because they are missing a treat.

I will try to read it again without consciously trying to decipher it. I think this way it might work for me.
