Animation and Description for Poem #244
It is simple, to ache, in the Bone, or the Rhind -
But Gimblets - among the nerve -
Mangle daintier - terribler -
Like a Panther in the Glove -
This poem is about the instinctual aspect of creativity, which is represented by the Panther. This type of creativity includes all manner of things that require a person to lose themselves. You completely lose yourself and become the Panther. It requires you to get your brain out of the game. There are many instances (athletics, writing, music, etc.) where we over think things, and end up mangling the whole thing. Our brain becomes the “Gimblet” that “Mangles” and suffocates the “Panther in the Glove”.
