The End - Lament of a Cornish poet -by Clive Blake by CliveBlake The End - Lament of a Cornish poet -by Clive Blake by CliveBlake
The End (Lament of a Cornish poet by Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry


I began a poem by writing its end,
Like gunpowder exploding
Before the touch-paper is lit,
I finished that poem,
Before I’d started it ...


--------------------------------------------------------------
This 'phoem' is titled "The End” (Lament of a Cornish poet by Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry,
from the 'Phoetry Book', View Points and Points of View".

I describe Phoetry as a fusion of poetry and photography.
I came up with the Phoetry concept in 1994.
Phoetry can also be described as Visual Poetry and loosely described as Concrete Poetry.

The poetry is by Cornish Poet Clive Blake [link]
photography by Chris Robbins MPAGB, AFIAP. [link]

was published by Emu House Publications [link]
Book design and typography by Adrian Blake [link]

Sometimes the inspiration goes missing. We create the perfect ending but are totally unable to find a dramatic beginning. This is both short and simple and highlights the dilemna of many a poet. Nicely done.

I like this photo, nice cool dim light blue sky with dark black ground. I like the silhouette of the man with the tool.
