water at the bottom of the ocean

water at the bottom of the ocean

A Poem by Jon Gary Frost

Inspired by the band The Talking Heads, the artist David Byrne, and the song Once in a Lifetime



Box-suit maniac.


I do indeed ask myself


just as your song says.



I do find myself


in all the manners you state.


same, same, same, same, same.

I love the Talking Heads. I love "Once In A Lifetime". I think we could sit down and talk about art and history and have the same taste for the most part. Your poems are getting shorter, and more to the point -- almost even stronger, if you will. They bring you in, end abruptly and leave you wanting more. Very well done.

Short, sweet, and kind of surreal (to me). Not my cup of tea, to be honest... a little too sparse, then again that's a personal preference and not a reflection on you. I felt like we were starting to go somewhere, delve into the depths as it were... and then it stops. Then again, like I said, that's just me. ;-)
