“Sister, Thank You” by M.G. Martin (Greying Ghost Pamphlet #47)

3 Apr

Greying Ghost is beautiful, is about beautiful, objects and pieces, stories and pamphlets. A box comes in the mail and it’s the Greying Ghost chapbook you ordered, say Plus or Minus by Weston Cutter, and you’re stoked, this beautiful (truly! truly!) handmade, map-covered chapbook, but then some more stuff shakes out, PAMPHLETS, those beautiful little sheets of paper, well-fonted, neat designs, stunning work.

One in particular, pamphlet #47, the single poem, “Sister, Thank You,” by M.G. Martin keeps shaking to the surface, to be re-read, for me myself to be re-shaken. It’s this uncontrolled, uncontrollable emphatic song, yes from grief and loss, but mainly and most remarkably of appreciation, an unapologetic and unrefined repeating, interrupting thank you.

you thank you are thank you
the thank you blood thank you
drop thank you dropping thank you
from thank you white thank you
roses thank you black thank you
fever thank you of thank you
the thank you spirit thank you
my thank you name thank you
is thank you without thank you
mouth thank you my thank you
mouth thank you without thank you
voice thank you my thank you
voice thank you without thank you
language thank you language thank you
without thank you tongue thank you
tongue thank you no thank you
you thank you

Buy a Greying Ghost chapbook and hope hope hope you get this beautiful pamphlet poem with it.

    Good summary of the year- poor option for selection 1. It can be a mess. Let is hope for any greater 2010.

    incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem
    or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the
    problem still exists.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the
    image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
    Therefore that’s why this paragraph is amazing. Thanks!

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was interested to know how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Appreciate it!

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems
    with your site. It seems like some of the written text in your posts
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment
    and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my internet browser because
    I’ve had this happen before. Thank you

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most bpogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but Ihad to ask!
