Victor Serge by Grant Guy

Victor Serge

Victor Serge
Splinter of a splinter (I. F. Stone)
Not a bad idea
Splinter of the splinter gets under the skin
It becomes irretrievable
And stings the body of betrayal
                  the body of despair
                  the Body Politics

And gives us other splinter of splinters

My origins in art derive from theatre. Theatre is a story telling medium of the human condition. It may be hyper realism or absurd but it is of stories of the human experience. As my career moved from playwriting to prose and poetry I remain committed to the human experience.From the front jacket of the collection of short stores The Naked City by Sterling Silliphant – where a crime of violence and an act of infinite tenderness can occur seconds apart . . . In many respects that is what I am attempting to do with my poems and stories. I am interested in our individual humanity in a harsh and sometimes comical environ. I believe, if there is a god, god is a prankster. How else do we explain genitalia and Donald Trump. Grant Guy is a Winnipeg, Canada, poet, writer and playwright.
