I was in Macon, Georgia yesterday with Eileen d'Esterno & Gary
Frankfurth to hang some paintings and plan a gig there, and had the
great pleasure to visit the home of poet Seaborn Jones, who lives in
the wilderness outside Macon. Seaborn is one of the best of the later
Beat era poets, and a great guy, as well. We hope to have a series of
performances around the Southeast and beyond in 2010, where I will
open the show and let Seaborn reawken the world to his magic.

The Red Horse by Seaborn Jones (video)

"...Seaborn Jones has been published in the New York Quarterly,
Southern Poetry Review, River Styx, Chattahoochee Review, Bogg, Poetry
New Zealand, Pearl, Rockhurst Review, Studio One, Wilshire Review,
Louisiana Review and numerous other journals including translations of
his work for European publications. His poems have been anthologized
in 80 on the 80s (Ashland University Press), Scorched Hands (Pariah
Press), Chester H. Jones Foundation, National Poetry Contest Winners,
1993, and in Java Monkey Speaks Anthology 3 (2008). He has received
three International Merit Awards from Atlanta Review. He is the author
of five books, Drowning from the Inside Out (C.V. Editions, Cherry
Valley, NY), Lost Keys (Snake Nation Press, Valdosta, GA), Getaway Car
in Reverse (Steam Iron Press), Black Champagne (Middle Georgia
College), and X-Ray Movies (MAS) which received the Georgia Author of
the Year Award in Poetry. He has been the recipient of the Violet Reed
Haas Poetry Prize and was selected as the 1991 Alan Collins Scholar in
Poetry at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference. Mr. Jones, a native of
Macon, Georgia, continues to speak and read extensively throughout the
United States..." -http://www.seabornjones.com

Dylan's Welsh for seaborn? I didn't know, so I looked that up; sure
enough, first site translated it as "son of the sea."

Heh. Except for the dates, I'd think of the other Dylan:

Something is happening here
But you don't know what it is;
Do you, Mr. Jones?

But I think it's just an interesting coincidence. The name may have
been translated from "Dylan" originally, but in its present form it
looks like a traditional family name. When I was googling for
Seaborn's written poetry, I found that a "Seaborn Jones" was a two-
term Congressman from Georgia in the 19th century.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seaborn_Jones

Here's a link I found to some of the current Seaborn Jones's poetry,
in case you missed it earlier.

Yes, Seaborn Jones is the ancestor of the one you found, who is buried
right here in our Linwood Cemetary, in Columbus.

Thanks for the information, Will. You know me, though; I'm one of
those who'd rather read poetry than listen to it; so I went looking
for some of Seaborn Jones's poetry on line. His own site wasn't much
help, since it's all about his new CD:

http://seabornjones.com/

I did some more digging, though, and found him featured on PoetryNet
as Poet of the Month for July, 2009:

http://www.poetrynet.org/month/archive2/jones/index.htm

That had a bonus: the PoetryNet archives, which I'd never encountered
before, look like another great treasury of modern poetry, one which
I've bookmarked for further reading.

I see his poem "Dog" is included in the several poems there... while
we were at his house talking and playing guitars, Eillen asked him to
read "Dog", one of her favorites of his, but he wouldn't... I could
see the sadness in his eyes, and I'm glad the subject was changed. A
powerful poem, and one that seems to still hit Seaborn still, years
later.

A dog carries her heart in her mouth.
She brings it to her master
As if it were a stick or a ball [...]

Powerful opening lines, of one of the best poems I've read about dogs.
It's extremely hard to evoke that unconditional love dogs have without
getting maudlin; and he avoids it well. From what you say, it sounds
like he wrote it about a dog of his that died, which would explain the
theme: how we ignore or take for granted the love we have. It's an old
message, but he makes it new again.

we were at his house talking and playing guitars, Eillen asked him to
read "Dog", one of her favorites of his, but he wouldn't... I could
see the sadness in his eyes, and I'm glad the subject was changed. A
powerful poem, and one that seems to still hit Seaborn still, years
later.
A dog carries her heart in her mouth.
She brings it to her master
As if it were a stick or a ball [...]
Powerful opening lines, of one of the best poems I've read about dogs.
It's extremely hard to evoke that unconditional love dogs have without
getting maudlin; and he avoids it well. From what you say, it sounds
like he wrote it about a dog of his that died, which would explain the
theme: how we ignore or take for granted the love we have. It's an old
message, but he makes it new again.
Sure blows a piece of crap like "Pete The Dog" away.

I was in Macon, Georgia yesterday with Eileen d'Esterno & Gary
Frankfurth to hang some paintings and plan a gig there, and had the
great pleasure to visit the home of poet Seaborn Jones, who lives in
the wilderness outside Macon. Seaborn is one of the best of the later
Beat era poets, and a great guy, as well. We hope to have a series of
performances around the Southeast and beyond in 2010, where I will
open the show and let Seaborn reawken the world to his magic.
The Red Horse by Seaborn Jones (video)
http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=...
"...Seaborn Jones has been published in the New York Quarterly,
Southern Poetry Review, River Styx, Chattahoochee Review, Bogg, Poetry
New Zealand, Pearl, Rockhurst Review, Studio One, Wilshire Review,
Louisiana Review and numerous other journals including translations of
his work for European publications. His poems have been anthologized
in 80 on the 80s (Ashland University Press), Scorched Hands (Pariah
Press), Chester H. Jones Foundation, National Poetry Contest Winners,
1993, and in Java Monkey Speaks Anthology 3 (2008). He has received
three International Merit Awards from Atlanta Review. He is the author
of five books, Drowning from the Inside Out (C.V. Editions, Cherry
Valley, NY), Lost Keys (Snake Nation Press, Valdosta, GA), Getaway Car
in Reverse (Steam Iron Press), Black Champagne (Middle Georgia
College), and X-Ray Movies (MAS) which received the Georgia Author of
the Year Award in Poetry. He has been the recipient of the Violet Reed
Haas Poetry Prize and was selected as the 1991 Alan Collins Scholar in
Poetry at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference. Mr. Jones, a native of
Macon, Georgia, continues to speak and read extensively throughout the
United States..." -http://www.seabornjones.com

"Ladonia Looks So Cold" by Dockery-Conley:http://www.myspace.com/willdockery
Thanks for the information, Will. You know me, though; I'm one of
those who'd rather read poetry than listen to it; so I went looking
for some of Seaborn Jones's poetry on line. His own site wasn't much
http://seabornjones.com/
I did some more digging, though, and found him featured on PoetryNet
http://www.poetrynet.org/month/archive2/jones/index.htm
That had a bonus: the PoetryNet archives, which I'd never encountered
before, look like another great treasury of modern poetry, one which
I've bookmarked for further reading.
I see his poem "Dog" is included in the several poems there... while
we were at his house talking and playing guitars, Eillen asked him to
read "Dog", one of her favorites of his, but he wouldn't... I could

Seaborn has a small pack of wild dogs inhabiting his surrounding
woods. He feeds them, leaving plastic sandwich bags of food. One of
them won't come out to get his but another carries a bag to him in the
woods. His dog poem and his caring for the stray and wild dogs brought
to mind my relationship with women: I have lost 'The One' and now can
only entertain short relations with strays and wild ones.

The Red Horse by Seaborn Jones (video)

An enjoyable poem and an enjoyable reading, particularly in that distinctive
accent.

I noticed a very high level of sibilance (that's verbal hiss) on the
recording. I assume that the only reason you've decided that he's not
another mushmouth is that he hasn't had the opportunity yet to decry your
unspeakable shit.

But then, I notice also that you have the same selectively-untuned ear when
listening to your own badly recorded videos.

On that recording he does. I know it's the recording. You know it's the
recording.

We both know that you're a liar when you listen to any recording by anyone
who thinks you are rubbish.

Your own recordings are slurred and a mess. You hear with the the same
honesty that you write, i.e. none.

And that's why you continue to scribble unspeakable shit.

Your loss.

No, there's none of the whistle-lisping, mouth-stuffed-with-gunk sound
that you produced on your recording... but since your deary
unimaginative poem -the exact opposite of Seaborn's work- was taken
offline, you can claim what you want, right, Mushmouth?

No, there's none of the whistle-lisping
Actually. it's exactly like that so you are clearly lying.

And that's the charitable interpretation.

The alternative explanation is that you genuinely do believe I have a speech
impediment and that it's acceptable to make fun of it. But that would
definitely be a barbaric fascist approach to a disability, wouldn't it? The
kind of person who wrotethat kind of thing would probably be low enough to
call someone they believed to be diabetic an "insulin junkie". So which is
it, Willy boy - are you just a bad liar or actually prejudiced against the
disabled?

Either way, it explains why all you can articulate is unspeakable shit.

What a loss you are.

But fair enough since it must equally be clear that "unspeakable shit" is

And that's why you continue
In Seaborn's words, why we continue:

"I lean more toward Democritus’ view that poetry is 'traced to the
poet’s invocation with the Muse' than Pindar’s view that 'poetry is an
acquired skill.' My problem is that I don’t know where my Muse is half
the time. It’s like being married to... someone who says she’s going
to the store, then disappears for days only to return with no
explanation, then wanders off again..." -Seaborn Jones

I was in Macon, Georgia yesterday with Eileen d'Esterno & Gary
Frankfurth to hang some paintings and plan a gig there, and had the
great pleasure to visit the home of poet Seaborn Jones, who lives in
the wilderness outside Macon. Seaborn is one of the best of the later
Beat era poets, and a great guy, as well. We hope to have a series of
performances around the Southeast and beyond in 2010, where I will
open the show and let Seaborn reawken the world to his magic.

in 80 on the 80s (Ashland University Press), Scorched Hands (Pariah

In Seaborn's presence, even before he read, his demeaner and speech
patterns underlined and emphasized the simple conversation and stuffed
it like a taxidermy of several continents.

Very cool, we need to clue Seaborn in on this... I was just riding
around listening to his CD of spoken word, along with the copy of the
Phish CD I found for, get this one dollar, at Dollar Tree, both are
very illuminating for the new season. Gonna be a big one, I can tell
already.
