I'm grateful to Allen Bramhall for his engagement of INVENT(ST)ORY in the context of mindfulness over at Mandala Web. Only such mindfulness would glean from the "details" of my trash the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. That's ideal poetry reading! Click on excerpt below for whole review:
Writers write. Some write more than others, and publish more. It's an exercise, and a maintenance of an order, to write. You can't sit back waiting for the Muses. The Muses, always fickle, have apparently been bought by Donald Trump to give him half an idea. Eileen's not waiting for the Muses to visit. Instead, she seems to be making a continual transcript of the energy markers of her world. ByI mean her concerns and interests (refer back to Olson quote). These concerns and interests embrace cultural, historical, aesthetic, social, and political elements.
