Gyre


       


“I have nothinG to
saY, and I am
saying it, and that is poetRy
as I nEeded it”
  
  
 John Cage






The quote above is attributed to John Cage, "avant-garde" composer and poet, whose 98th birthday would have been today. I have arranged the quote in the form of a mesostic (in this case, a fifty-percent mesostic), a form he used extensively, along with a matching image of a Texas tornado. His compositions could be like gyres, indeed.
