Apple Montage

Sneaking around
with Cousin Jenny,
smoking menthol
beyond the sheds.

Late summer vacation 1973
in the backwoods of Tennessee.

To the right
behind the barn
were apple trees.

There were several
of those trees
and other trees
behind them
beyond a field
and behind them, other trees.

Later, I stood near
as a crowd
watched Pops and my Uncle
cooking apple butter;
stirring the brown gunk,
boiling in a huge black kettle.

I saw my father
secretly pass
a wine bottle
to my Uncle Clarence.

I went from
breathing cold mist
out back behind the barn,
to breathing
the hot misty steam.

The air smelled of apple fumes
and strong booze.

-Will Dockery / 2018

Note:
The other thread for this poem is getting so long I want to start a new one specifically for discussion of the poem, which continues.

The first time I read "Apple Non-tage," I thought it was relatively good (relative to the rest of Will's gibberish, that is), due to the sustained (and apparently unintentional) biblical metaphor.

Will received praise from all who commented on it, included the supposed "malicious trolls."

Several thousand bumps and reposts later, the poem has become anathema to all and sundry.

There's a lesson to learned from this. Unfortunately, both you and Will are too dense to figure it out.

Why do you lie so much, Will?

The poem is not a montage, nor does it contain an example of one; I had corrected it accordingly.

That's what I mean by "don't over think it."

The poem is only good in comparison to the pidgin English wannabe folk rock lyrics you usually write. It isn't a very good poem by any other yardstick.
Post by Will Dockery

I know that you think it's "snappy" and are therefore going to hang onto it come hell or high water.

I'm of the school that thinks a poem's title should capture the essence of and/or comment on the poem. Since there is not so much as one apple, or one instance of montage in your poem, the title just comes across as stupid.
Post by Will Dockery

How's this: you call it "Apple Montage," and I'll refer to it more realistically as "Apple Non-tage"?
Post by Will Dockery

What do you mean by "don't over think it" is that one shouldn't think about it at all.

No, I wasn't including you.

The poem debuted in one of Jim's "Sunday Samplers."

Will had been whining his head off about how his poems were always lost in the shuffle in the Samplers and consequently ignored, and bitching and moaning about how the malicious trolls would automatically anything he posted.

However, when he posted a new poem (as opposed to his previous submissions of poems he'd been reposting here for every day for two decades), the "trolls" responded with words of encouragement and praise.

Will has been reposting "Apple Non-tage" 10x/day every day ever since.

So he was congratulated because it was new, not because anybody was
stupid enough to think that it was good? That's a relief.

Oh, has he? I hadn't noticed.

Meanwhile, of course, I've written no verse at all, not even a cento,
a limerick, or parodies of Shakespeare and Bukowski. That's because I
no longer post any verse under my own name, you see.

But I have a feeling that Mr Allan Sundry might post a poem on 1st
April next year, and that George Dunce will beg him for the privilege
of "publishing" it.

(You might think that even Dunce would never fall for that, but Dunce
fell for rhonda-jane two or three years ago. It turns out that I put
far more effort into "Julius Wyatt" than was needed.)

That seems unlikely, given your unfailingly polite and respectful

You certainly didn't post the same thing often enough for it to be
deemed cancellable spam, which is what really matters.

You are allowed your opinion of my poem, "Michael Pendragon", but that
Apple Montage is my application in poetry of montage effects.
You do not agree?
You are allowed your opinion, of course.
Yes it is, it is those things many times over, in fact, just read the poem
Apple Montage Sneaking around with Cousin Jenny, smoking menthol beyond
the sheds. Late summer vacation 1973 in the backwoods of Tennessee. To
the right behind the barn were apple trees. There were several of those
trees and other trees behind them beyond a field and behind them, other
trees. Later, I stood near as a crowd watched Pops and my Uncle cooking
apple butter; stirring the brown gunk, boiling in a huge black kettle. I
saw my father secretly pass a wine bottle to my Uncle Clarence. I went
from breathing cold mist out back behind the barn, to breathing the hot
misty steam. The air smelled of apple fumes and strong booze. -Will

I'll make it easy for you: describe an example of poetic montage in Will's poem *without using the word "montage."*

That's an improvement over your previous claim that it's a poem in montage form.

However, when your vision of a montage doesn't even remotely match the general definition, it's usually a sign that you need to rethink your vision.

Not only is it neither a poem not a montage, but it's also not a
vision.

Everybody with an IQ above 80 agrees about that.

The air smelled of apple fumes
and strong booze.

The other thread for this poem is getting so long I want to start a new one specifically for discussion of the poem, which continues.

Quite obviously a montage in poetry form........

Apple Montage
Sneaking around
with Cousin Jenny,
smoking menthol
beyond the sheds.
Late summer vacation 1973
in the backwoods of Tennessee.
To the right
behind the barn
were apple trees.
There were several
of those trees
and other trees
behind them
beyond a field
and behind them, other trees.
Later, I stood near
as a crowd
watched Pops and my Uncle
cooking apple butter;
stirring the brown gunk,
boiling in a huge black kettle.
I saw my father
secretly pass
a wine bottle
to my Uncle Clarence.
I went from
breathing cold mist
out back behind the barn,
to breathing
the hot misty steam.
The air smelled of apple fumes
and strong booze.
