WELCOME TO THE POETIC
The Poetic Genius Society is composed of intellectually gifted
individuals with a passion for poetry. They are the creative artists
of our time, whose literary output interprets the heritage of the
past and the urgent now.
Founded by Dr. Greg Grove in 1998, our fellowship of poets has
been a thriving haven for aspiring artists in the High IQ community.
Although our ranks are extremely diverse, we share a common bond
in our love for all things poetic.
PGS' online journal, Apotheosis, is a growing collection
of works by poets from all over the world. It is here for your enjoyment.

Release in April '07 of "Mall Robbers",
an independent film by Anthony Watkins of Dominion Pictures, in
which I play a leading role as SGT Hobbs, a redneck security honcho
in the slapstick comedy of errors.
Mark Norman: I would like to alert readers and
members to our own up and coming. Torg will give me more information
on this project as it becomes available. Filming took place Feb.
the 3rd, good luck my thespian friend.
I am a Bohemian spirit living in the Illawarra,
about 80 km south of Sydney. I delight in writing poems and puzzles,
painting and composing music. I mainly find my inspiration in nature
and in solitude.
Mark Norman: I own several of Maria's works.
The poems are a vivid self-analysis, a look at the nature in Australia
and the use of it for the description of the condition of mankind.
Her works are highly recommended read, Mark Norman
Nath is a genius; Tanguy an idiot. Any such extremes disturb people.
In recognition of this fact, a pharmaceutical corporation is undertaking
experiment with a new drug, “normality pills”, that
would move them both toward the norm. It is decided to put them
in contact using e-mail exchanges. Those responsible for the experiment
will monitor the exchanges. So a deep friendship evolves between
two individuals who normally would never have even met. Their dialogue
is moving right up to the terrifying conclusion. One of the themes
of the narrative is the loneliness of the extremes.
Scream of Consciousness is a collection of puzzles, poems, short
stories and rants all of which share one common thread – they
were written impromptu, in single focused moments of creative clarity.
The idea behind Scream is a new writing style that I call transentia,
which is similar in nature to the Japanese philosophy Wabi Sabi:
nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect. It’s
about finding the beauty of frozen moments in time and the flaw
of those moments. It’s a bold and selfless idea to offer your
creativity on display with painfully obvious flaws amidst the work.
It’s intuitive for most artists to strive for perfection when
trying to convey their vision so the writer corrects his story through
several drafts and extensive editing. But to be truly selfless requires
one to shed the ego and forge fearlessly ahead with the knowledge
that most likely, you will stumble when the deluge of creativity
streams from your mind and forces you to produce something new.
