Different Eyes

We want, so badly,
to believe in ourselves;

With different eyes,
with love
and hope

and high
for a new morning.


...

This is in "Thus Spoke Zarathustra"

and who doesn't wish for different eyes, sometimes?

I want to thank everyone, in advance, who watches me for the found poetry. I know it's huge, and I want to thank you all for feeling it too.

This is too cool!!!! Did you write this before you found the words on the page, or did you choose the words and then turn them into poetry?

This is fantastic. I love how you used Nietzsche.

Thanks so much! I've used him a lot. I completed a copy of "The Birth of Tragedy" where nearly every page is a poem.

That's quite an accomplishment! Nietzsche wrote some poetry himself if I remember correctly.

Hey, I’m part of a cosplay group that is making internet cosplays, where we are being personifications of websites. I am being Deviantart and I am planning on walking around with a binder that is my “gallery” that’s filled with all sorts of art that can be found on DA. I was wondering if you would mind me using this piece for my “gallery”. I will not use it without your permission, and it will clearly have your Deviantart name on a corner giving you credit for the art. I fully understand if you do not want me using this and will not if you do not want me to. Thanks for your time.

I don't mind at all! Though this is one of my least favorite pieces, I'd encourage you to choose another from my gallery... but whatever you like, you may use. I hope you'll let me see the results?

Thanks for letting me use it, I'd actually love to use several of your works

and if I remember I will most certainly share my results with you if I remember to. If not around April I'll have pictures (or at least one) up on DA.

I highly disagree with everyone who's so uptight about 'defacing' a book. Books are meant to be used to the fullest, read, and then done with however you please. It's YOUR property, YOU can do whatever you want with it. Guys, it's not like the author burned the book or defaced it because the words were offensive, and really, I've defaced books just as bad when annotating for school. It's not plagiarism either, because the focus isn't on the book itself. What about those books with the ring in them that create the heart? Are those plagiarism as well?

Thank you for coming to the defense of the creation. I'm glad I'm not the only one to feel that way. I've started ignoring the negativity.

It's not about defacing physical property. Yes, a book is just a thing. Who the hell cares what you do with it? But the words in them transcend the paper and ink; they are someone else's intellectual property, and that warrants some amount of respect.

This particular poem is fine on its own. It has no significant link (none that anyone thus far can apparently discern, anyway) to the original work. It's not plagiarism, exactly, but it is disrespectful, in my opinion. ...And some might could call it plagiarism seeing as the original author wasn't credited, but that's not what's got my panties all in a knot. Basically, this found poetry does not seem to honor its mother. And so I am disappoint.

I don't view this as disrespectful in the least. It means the person had paid enough attention to the text itself to be able to pick out those words that would create an entirely new meaning.

I strongly dislike when people assume that something like this doesn't equal respect. I don't see it. I mean, the words aren't completely blacked out- you can still read it. And ANYONE who has tried found poetry (I've taken a shot at it myself, just by underlining words) understands that you read the same page so many times you memorize it almost- if I found one of my works turned into found poetry I would be insanely happy. It means someone A: Cared enough to find something different and B: Enjoyed it enough to want to look for the difference.

Decent argument, but I can't say I'm swayed. I think of this the same way I'd think of someone doing the same sort of thing to someone's artwork; their carefully drawn lines and colored shades much like an author's artistic choice of words. Someone may look at a picture someone drew and want to change it, trace it, take part of it and say hey, look what I did with someone else's creation, isn't that neat? Isn't that creative? It's my own now, sort of, I just loved it so much that I just had to take it, or part of it, and twist it, change it, do whatever with it. It's creative, yeah, technically, but I think most artists would be offended by that, the way many writers (myself included) may be offended by this. Just because you love something doesn't mean you aren't capable of disrespecting it. But to each their own, I guess.
