Poets & Painters - The halo effect

This is a piece about the quasi scientific process of using two art forms placed in close proximity or overlapping to produce a new piece of art. I like the way it expresses the concept of complementarity from Bohr's quantum theory, and speaks to the use of more than just visual perceptions in the creation of sensory expressions (I would call them images) like pseudochromesthesia.

I really like the results of cooperation within and across schools of thought. I linked to a poem "Ratios" that I believe misses the point--assigns a numerical concept to a "Miller Analogy" of the form "14 is to weak as overtime is to Bukowski." Maybe it is an example of the false pretense some editors use to determine what is acceptable.

Chevreulian Abstract Psychodrama

Poets impersonating pointillist painters
Co-opting neo-impressions into lines and form
metaphorical blends of image and tone
halo & hue into meter & meaning
cool blue declarations
warm yellow interrogations
An artistic grammatical transmutation—
Seurat geometry in aural rhythm & rhyme

This bears repeating, if the above is 12345678, then
is the whole package. Let Mike in Space (Speakonia) say it quickly and often.
