    Poet's Corner Magazine ( I )






    So, I have recently been made the new moderator for the Poet's Corner.
    I'll attempt to clean up and enforce the rules that should be being followed
    anyway and also actually update the Hall of Fame which seems to have
    been abandoned the recent months. Anyway this magazine shall be featured
    monthly or bi-weekly depending on the activity in the section to showcase
    the many talents that this section has to offer and to inspire newer writers
    to reach out and grab the bull by the horns and write some poetry. Truth
    has helped A LOT in putting together this first issue so honourable mention
    to him. Let's get it rolling...




    Emilyinthepool

    Emilyinthepool is a great writer and deserves a mention in this magazine
    She's been steadily improving and the last couple of months she's shown
    us the fruits of her labour gaining her induction into the hall of fame with
    her piece That shade of red. Not to mention the other solid
    pieces she seems to be dropping back to back at the moment. This is a
    woman on a mission.

    一四三‎

    一四三‎ is another excellent poet, probably better known for his topicals but
    everything I read from this guy lately has been on point. He also gained
    induction this month in the hall of fame with his poem titled He. A man of few words,
    but wisely chosen ones. Also, tagging this guy is a challenge in itself.
    He's literally like the ninja of the poetry section, he jumps in posts his
    poem and hops right back out before anyone knows what the hell is happening.

    Soul_Purpose

    Soul_Purpose is what I like to call a thinker. He seems to push the boundaries
    with his poetry and has very unique ideas behind him. I just wish he'd post more
    instead of hiding away in the Haiku league. lol Anyway this mention
    was well deserved, Heres one to wrap your head around is his latest work and a
    great example of what happens when you experiment with different ideas.

    Truth Iscariot

    Truth Iscariot is a familiar face to most, but he's going HAM on this section
    at the minute dropping poems like a madman. Each as solid as the next and
    The beauty of the moth was inducted into
    the hall of fame this month so that's always a nice addition. Keep dropping.

    Narrator

    Although I don't know much about this guy. He's actually only dropped one
    poem. However, if the rest of the drops to come are like his first. He'll be a
    valuable asset to the section definitely.


    By Truth Iscariot

    The spotlight poem for this mag comes from The Symbol, 143. 143 put on a
    tour de force in terms of the emotion packed into this piece. The sentiments
    expressed here are ones I as a father can really dig. You can’t fabricate feelings
    like these; this is real, raw, writing.

    he smiles at me
    the affirmation that the day was good
    his hands swallowed by my palms
    he giggles at me

    he walks proud that he is here
    steps of confidence erecting and strengthening
    he spouts wildly how the day should end
    how we should get drunk with Sunkist Orange Drink and Lay's Potato Chips
    then he redirect to getting my butt whooped in madden
    planning the time has got him juiced

    through the rambling he stops and hug me
    tell me that he love me
    i'm the best
    he ever had....lol
    like he had others
    but i feel that he truly trust me
    he truly want me to be every dream he has of me
    and i will be his every adventure and his prayer bench
    he knows my love.....

    i'm his only superhero

    and who he is.......

    he is my son

    By Truth Iscariot

    This Mag’s spotlight poem comes from two of the best poetry writers to ever grace
    RB, Martyr and Poeta. This piece is a display of excellent word choice and being able
    to weave abstract ideas together. Though this is a collaboration the poets seem to
    be thinking with the same mind, two different entities of the same soul. This type of
    writing is what we all should be aspiring to live up to as Poets and Writers. Here it is,
    Ancient Future by Martyr & Poeta.

    a metropolis of fallen angels
    breaking the concrete with babies
    smothered in live wires, covered in
    fire as we kiss good night to our minds

    Meteors dotted the ocean of masses,
    like a message from above in morse code.
    power-lines fall, steadily, like dying leaves,
    and the need for an accommodation is
    balanced with need of life.

    Electrical romantics are forcefully divorced,
    as computers lash out at the families and
    leave mother boards bleeding on the stone
    cold pulse of DSL hearts; the hills are alive
    ...with the sound of revolution

    Heart-broken, a lost love,
    searching for something in the debris,
    like an addict digging through hospital dumpster's,
    hoping to inhale the scent of 'treasure'
    when in reality... it's trash.

    Dirty needles to societys veins,
    cursing through it's blood 'stream'
    untill it shakes hands with the sea
    of chains; shimmering to it's demise
    we rest forever in a prison of brain 'cells'


    Who are your favourite poetry writers on RB at the moment?

    My top 5 atm, in terms of enjoyability and current catalog are as follows: Soul Purpose,
    Emilyinthepool, Android, and 143. Each have different elements which make them
    awesome writers

    How much time/thought would you say goes into your writing process?

    Not as much as some would think lol. I get done with a poem in 30 minutes tops. I like to
    write out whatever mood i'm in, get it all on the page, and move on. I'd say this is my biggest
    downfall though because I don't proofread my work a lot. People seem to like it though lol

    You've been around a while. In your experience what do you think makes a good poem?

    It has to be able to connect with the reader. Thats the biggest thing I've learned over the years.
    I've been writing since I was twelve and on the site since I was 15, so I know if you can get the
    reader drawn in with your use of language, get them deep inside your mode of thought. and you
    will succeed as a writer.

    what do you think about the level of feedback on poems at the moment?

    I think some are doing a splendid job and others are slacking lol. There are 3-5 writers who drop
    excellent feed, and there and there are quite a few writers who leave feedback that could be
    more in-depth and more telling. I think we all should remember when reading a piece that the
    whole reason people are dropping poems on the site is to improve their craft. We all can use
    Constructive Criticism and we all want it, so we all need to remember that one hand washes
    the other.

    What advice would you give to the newer writers emerging in the Poet's corner a
    the moment?


    Don't compromise your style trying to fit in to whats succesful on RB. Stick to your guns and
    perfect your own style, make it so that people want to write like you and enjoy reading your
    pieces because of your individuality as a poet. I was around back when Poeta and Atticus
    were dropping HoF poems left and right, I know what its like to think writing a certain way will
    get you more praise. But the thing that made them great was their individual styles.So stick
    to what you're doing and perfect it.

    How do you feel about the current level of activity within the section?

    It's improving but still activity needs to increase. We've seen a great writer from RB's past,
    Messiah, come back which is awesome. Omerta has been dropping all types of poetry pieces
    which makes me proud, 143 has been dropping a few here and there, which is great. But
    still we need more. Witty has promised a poem in the future so hopefully he will become more
    active in the section. I think we are doing a good job revamping it but still there needs to
    be more.

    Thanks for your time, any shoutouts/beefs before we end this interview?

    I like to send a shoutout to all the writers who are being active in PC, thank you. God of War,
    thanks for modding Andy, he's gonna do great. Thanks for the interview Android....And fuck @Dia



    Imagining defeat
    by David Berman

    She woke me up at dawn,
    her suitcase like a little brown dog at her heels.

    I sat up and looked out the window
    at the snow falling in the stand of blackjack trees.

    A bus ticket in her hand.

    Then she brought something black up to her mouth,
    a plum I thought, but it was an asthma inhaler.

    I reached under the bed for my menthols
    and she asked if I ever thought of cancer.

    Yes, I said, but always as a tree way up ahead
    in the distance where it doesn't matter

    And I suppose a dead soul must look back at that tree,
    so far behind his wagon where it also doesn't matter.

    except as a memory of rest or water.

    Though to believe any of that, I thought,
    you have to accept the premise

    that she woke me up at all.


    Short rant this issue since I'm in a good mood, but first and foremost fuck people who
    expect feedback yet don't leave feed back. People getting feedback and then not
    returning the favour, hell I know I'm guilty of it myself sometimes when I step away
    from my laptop and forget all about returning the feed. Also whoever didn't update
    the Hall of fame for like 3 months... That's like denying people what they've earned.
    Taking away what some people aim for is not cool, not cool.



    Well. Hope you guys enjoyed the magazine, hopefully I have time to put more love
    into it next issue. If any of you feel like you've not been mentioned over a few others
    then it's nothing personal. Can't fit everyone who ever posts a poem into the mag, but
    these are what stood out recently in our eyes. Again thank you Truth for the help and
    interview, stay writing peoples, Rome wasn't built in a day and the Poetry section won't
    be restored to it's previous overnight either. It's going to slowly improve though hopefully.
    That's the aim, peace. Keep dropping.

    Great mag people. So nice to see a Poetry mag.
    Also, I thought it was good how you mentioned poets needing more feed and how the HOF had been neglected over the last few months. Hopefully that won't happen again because of the renewed dedication around PC atm.
    Thank you so much for the mention.
    I didn't know I got HOF. Thank you to @Word z AhGod and @Day-day for noming 'That Shade of Red'
    and to you guys for giving it HOF.
    Keep up the good work.
