Upcoming June IBPC 2018:

#1 Post by Michael (MV) » 28 May 2018, 04:23

 
Voice your recommendation(s) here, and

Please let us know ASAP if you are not going to be available to represent the Writer's Block -

then we will know not to consider your poems further this month's IBPC.

I/we will be looking for consensus - in keeping with a communal workshop environment

Which 1-3 would we like to see represent the Writer's Block in the finals?

After the 3 are selected, then will each author post - in this thread - the poem as the poet would like it forwarded,

and ALL the needed info/statements

Ideally, the only poems that really need to appear here are the final 3, when announced, hopefully by the 1st of January, if not sooner

^^ the intent is organizational - if poems appear here before the selection of the final 3, then there is a congestion -

Until the final 3 are announced, please maintain poems & workshopping to the Workshop Forum. Thanks.



************

any newcomers or returnees this month, Welcome!

and here is a home link to the IBPC rules: http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/rules


In this thread, from the poems posted in the workshop forum during the course of the month, recommend/nominate by title & author.

Nominated poets, please acknowledge the nomination here in this thread.
Please reply by accepting or declining the nomination - in this thread.

Please note & observe: This is not a workshopping thread.

In this thread, poems that are ultimately selected to represent the Block are then posted here
as the author would like for the poem to be forwarded
along with all IBPC required info.

When the 1-3 poems are decided upon, and permission granted by each author of the selected poems,

along with all the info needed by each author:



1/Your name

2/e-mail address

3/statement that the poem is your original

4/and unpublished work

5/and that you are not representing in the current IBPC

6/and the poem as you would like it forwarded to the finals.

^^ All of the above is the usual needed info as part of the process.


I will then forward the 1-3 to the IBPC finals.


Thanks

Poem in Exile in the Style of Neruda

#9 Post by Kenneth2816 » 04 Jun 2018, 20:34

Thoughts are of you, my Cuba.
How your history bruises the world.

The sugar white sands of Baracoa
my sister and I bathed in the sea,
moon on her sleek, naked body

as we watched the Soldados
drop bombs on the Sierra Marstre
that quickened the fires of Fidel.

I remember old women washing clothes at Malecon, using soap
made from pan grease and lye.

They beat the rocks with their laundry as if extracting confessions,
stretch it on the seawall to dry.

Los Barudos- the bearded ones,
took the streets of Habana.

I sang with you O Cuba.
Our hearts soared high,
skin sewed to each other.

The firing squads of Guevera,
on the outskirts of the city.
They blindfolded you my dark
beauty, stuffed a rag in your mouth


I wept into my hands like a woman.
Your blood soaked breast repulses.
My wound is too old to bandage.

Yet 2 details, please:

The 1st is to provide asap the usual needed info - Thanks


The 2nd is an unconditional last-minute workshop suggestion:

streamline the title to

Poem in Exile, after Neruda

or instead of the comma

Poem in Exile (after Neruda)


Thanks

Suggestion to Ken
I remember old women washing clothes at Malecon, using soap
made from pan grease and lye.

They beat the rocks with their laundry as if extracting confessions,
stretch it on the seawall to dry.
Lines breaks at 'washing' and 'laundry'

Thanks, Kenneth, for those required details.

Now, do you want the line breaks Frank has suggested?

If so, repost the poem

or

go to the entry where you have posted the poem here in this thread, then select edit and make the line break changes.


Of course since it is now June 5th ASAP

Thanks,

2/ re "They beat the rocks with their laundry "

If I recall correctly, in the scenarios I have seen of this agitation method,

it is the laundry that is rubbed, twisted, and/or slapped against flat rocks.


Of course since it is now June 5th, please make edit(s) ASAP.

Thanks,

Michael (MV)

Kenneth,

I'm still waiting to hear from Siva, and Bob;

therefore, after you wake from resting, maybe you'll make the change(s).

Your call

I'm representing the Waters
otherwise 'Gentle Clapping' would have been available.
That would have been my preferred option for this month.
Too late now.
