Saint Mary's College Presents Afternoon Craft Conversation with Kazim Ali
"THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE" BY KAZIM ALI
Poems, like the physical universe, are made of vibrations. Consonants shape and release vowels in intentional patterns. Cage explored silence in music, Ryman and Martin in painting, Ohno in dance. Viewing their motions help to see how sound and silence in move in the poetic line. But one must experience sound not only externally traveling into the body through the bones and spaces of the ear but inside the body traveling outward.
