"Handsome Architect" at Uut

"Handsome Architect" (ice and also ice (2018))

Brooks Lampe is a champion of the unknown. He runs Uut, which is, as he puts it, "a personal blog posing as a poetry magazine with a particular interest in surrealism and surreal poetry in the broadest sense, especially in the United States." The aesthetics represented at Uut are wide-ranging and varied, since, as Uut notes, surrealism has found its way into many different schools (and schools) of poetry.


Andre Breton, artist and theorist and control freak, defined surrealism in the first manifesto as "[p]sychic automatism in its pure state, by which one proposes to express — verbally, by means of the written word, or in any other manner — the actual functioning of thought. Dictated by thought, in the absence of any control exercised by reason, exempt from any aesthetic or moral concern." By which he basically means don't overthink it.

In that spirit, a short poem, "Handsome Architect," scribbled over the course of a couple of minutes, is over at Uut. It takes its form from a prompt that can also be found there. Thanks to Dr. Lampe for posting it and keeping a good thing going.
