Nonsense from the Heart

by T Newfields


Rather than a polished statement, this as an exploration of the mystery of love. This work has no singular manifesto or ideology. Moving through many vignettes, you'll notice that these poems, art works, and interviews are ripe with contradictions. This is more than an accident. I believe contradictions are a source of new insights. Uniformity is a sign of stagnation. If everything is uniform, why even bother to write? To me it seems that the best in us comes out when we explore many experiences. Well-domesticated creatures who follow the gestapos of conformity might object to such a statement. However, those with a wild streak, an irrepressible bit of fire in their blood, know it is an essential credo: we were born for wildness, and loving is best when not fully tame.
