Poetry By Viggo Mortensen

The samples of Poetry by Viggo Mortensen shown here are taken from his book, Recent Forgeries:

HOME

HE'S GOT A DEEP, ABIDING RESPECT

VERGING ON IDOL WORSHIP

FOR WHERE THINGS END UP.

THERE ARE UNOPENED LETTERS

IN HIS REFRIGERATOR, A FAKE 

FINGERNAIL IN THE SOAPDISH,

SHOES EVERYPLACE.

THESE THINGS, AND MANY MORE

LEAVINGS, FRAGMENTS, BALANCING

REMINDERS OF A BREEZE

FROM A SLAMMED DOOR--

CONFIGURATIONS OF SANCTIFIED LOOSE ENDS--

HAVE BECOME THE LIVING NET

ABOVE WHICH HE PERFORMS

THE MOVEMENTS THAT MAKE

THE CLOCK WORK.

 

--What are some of the things that works for me in this poem?  The stanza break from "balancing" to "reminders."  It gives the feeling of hovering, lingering, "trapezing" above the "living net."  Also, there is a picture of a room of Mortensen's "home" in Recent Forgeries and the above poem makes me think of this picture.

 

PROGRESS

 

I HAVE RECORDINGS OF OUR VOICES

IN ROOMS NOW COLLAPSED, OF US RUNNING

THROUGH BLUE BUILDINGS THAT STOOD

FIFTY YEARS.  SOUNDS FROM A SCHOOL

WHERE YOUR FOREHEAD WAS REOPENED

ON THE SHOE-SHAPED SLIDE.  PICTURES

OF THE TEAL-GREEN TUX YOU WANTED

FOR KINDERGARTEN GRADUATION.  OF YOU,

WET-COMBED HAIR AND RED-FACED HAPPY,

SITTING WITH YOUR MOTHER, EATING CAKE.

 

--This makes me think of the phrase, "Have your cake and eat it, too."  Why?  Because of the title.
