INSIDE the Cafe with Prof DEWITT CLINTON, Acclaimed Poet of our Times.


Today at TIME OF THE POET Republic we celebrate poetry with prolific Poet, Professor DEWITT CLINTON. A great man of letters, distinguished literary arts doyen. Iconic and Acclaimed Poet.  Professor Emeritus and dynamic wordsmith. Time of the Poet is greatly humbled to feature this versatile and vibrant. Man of Letters whose merits are beyond common reach.  PROLIFIC.  Professor Clinton's poetry is weaved with great tact, requisite zeal coupled with verbal dexterity and artistic prowess. The verses are turgid with reason while the rhythm is nothing less than captivating. His writers’ profile is elephantine, he swigged Canterbury tales to the dregs, dinned Shakespearean sonnets, munched the Metaphysics chocolates and the refreshing beverage is Paradise Lost and Langston Hughes protest becomes his dessert.  ICONIC. Thank you greatly Distinguished Professor for affording us this literary platinum opportunity to the poetic wine from your wonder palm wine tree of artistic stardom. Let me hasten to note that this set of poems  were previously published by Be-zine , Arts and Humanities as founded by our Poetry Tigress G JAMIE DEDES and Co- Edited by our Poetry Chef MICHAEL DICKEL during  a collaborative April month  gig. SALUTATIONS. by our  Together We Rise – Blurb by TIME OF THE POET Curator, Mbizo CHIRASHA.

EVERYTHING REMEMBERS IN MICHAEL DICKEL’S NOTHING REMEMBERS.


Wholesomely, NOTHING REMEMBERS is a paradox of life, death and resurrection as seen in seasons of life ,in the aging , as seen in the sunrise and sunset, so EVERYTHING REMEMBERS that becomes in the paradox of Michael Dickel’s NOTHING REMEMBERS. My argument is there is nothing called nothing, even void is full of something even if that something is emptiness. Nothing Remembers is a deep paradox of existence and non-existence, or nonexistence in existence. NOTHING REMEMBERS , the title  is  a complex analogy  of  the world found  in Michael Dickel’s poesy and that  is artistically synchronized  by  the visual art oil painting  Angel of Time, which is the cover jacket of the  , remember time  depicts  age and agelessness , existence , spirituality , memory and  hope . All these factors are captured in NOTHING REMEMBERS. When you remember an incident , the first flicker of your memory is  TIME , so the use of the visual art  ANGEL OF TIME on  the book cover  synchronizes  presentation ,  literary swag  , artistic  dexterity, reason ,morality  and depth of detail ,etiquette, personal experience ,travelogue and deep personal reflections.

TIME OF THE POET:Second Name of Earth is PEACE.


  MOTHER EARTH is broken from  incessant  decadent wars carelessly perpetuated by mindless ,vicious political imbeciles. Our natural wealth  plundered  by  greedy ,gluttonous   economic dare-devils, imbibing  crude oil and fresh blood .   Warlord-ism set the suns of our freedom, our earth is torn naked   . War is ravaging the beauty of African diamond fields ,We … Continue reading TIME OF THE POET:Second Name of Earth is PEACE.

James Coburn’s Poetry Dish  tastes of   African Politics of  RESISTANCE.


JAMES COBURN ’s free style verses are pregnant with reason , emotion and mesmerizing rhythm . Coburn is a day by day  poet serializing human experiences and earthly happenings with a willing pen. His diction is creatively economized, while the expression is satirically delicious, meaning is creamed   with metaphoric opulence and reason is dipped  in  paradox. The Imagery is beautiful and proudly portrays signals and symbols with that astonishing poetic exuberance. The delivery is  organic, original like a fertile womb yet to be born. EXLUSIVE! The poet in Coburn is a griot of his land and a singer for his people. Ironically Coburn’s poetry dishes taste African politics and protests for justice. Some ingredients of reason, experience and emotion are borrowed from African Poets of resistance. We live under one universe despite demographical and geographical parameters. I always say, James Coburn is an Africa Griot in Oklahoma. Happy Great Year of 2020. ALUTA CONTINUA!!!
