After all that horror... after those nightmares... at last the official "Sebastian VENABLE Memorial Foundation" web site. It was high time! All white naturally, his favorite color.
The one and only goal of this web site is to promote Sebastian VENABLE, the poet. Yes, Sebastian was a poet. Well, strictly speaking, his life was his occupation. That's what I meant when I said his life was his work. Because the work of a poet is the life of a poet. And vice versa. I mean, you can't separate them. I mean a poet's life is his work. And his work is his life, in a special sense. I mean... Because... Oh!
We all know that Sebastian abhorred the false values that come from being publicly known, from fame, from personal exploitation. But Sebastian was using people grandly, creatively, almost like God. And it's now my turn to handle his future recognition.
I have decided to publish some summer poems. And I invite you to come back soon, to read more. Here is the third delivery of the summer poems. Some early work, quite short, but so deep, meaningful and intense! The delivery of a summer poem is such an exhausting process, really!
Very strangely, some other poems appear to be in French, des poèmes en français. Such an extravagance, really! But I dearly hope you can understand them, for these are his finest pieces of work.
If you also own some more Sebastian VENABLE summer poems, please don't waste a minute and contact me urgently!
