I would venture to believe that the poem is constructed by an architect. But also a poet, a lover of nature, a VERY amazing and smart man! Wink

At the Collected Works event Fenn said, "It took me 15 years to write the poem. I’ve changed it so many times and I’ve said before that I didn’t write that poem…it was written by an architect…each word is deliberate."



At the Moby Dickens event Fenn said, "The poem in my book is something that changed over and over again. When you read the poem it looks like just simple words the...but I guarantee you, I worked on that thing...I felt like an architect, drawing that poem."



When I heard him say it the first time at Collected Works, it sounded new...like he was trying the metaphor out to see if it fit with the way he speaks and writes...a trial balloon. By Moby Dickens, it sounded a bit more refined, like he had tried it out a couple more times since Collected Works.



Both my daughter and my son-in-law are architects. I asked them to look at the quotes, and I asked them to look at the poem and tell me what they thought.



Basically, their response was, "Architects don't draw. Draftsmen do. And writing a poem is nothing like architecting an enclosed space."



I think it's Fenn taking liberty, and playing, with the language. I think he uses "architect" (as a noun) in the same way a "builder" would use a box of lego blocks and a set of instructions (blueprint) to get to a finished project. All the pieces, of various sizes, shapes and colors have to fit together in order to complete the project.



In his case, I'll hypothesize, the "blueprint" was in his head, and took 15 years to get to a synchronous finish.

That's an interesting take on it, Toby.



One of the supervisors at my workplace is a graduate of the Naval Academy, and has a particular skill set that I cannot expound upon because it would reveal my hypothesis. I recently showed him the poem and a picture that I took, and he said "I get the impression that he was probably paddled quite often in his youth".



Back to square one!

Seems odd he says he didn't write the poem. Do architects use Benchmarks?

Perhaps Forrest the Architect should have had a civil engineer proof his concept as most firms do.

Older architects do draw plans. Newer ones have decided everything can be computer generated. Shortsighted to not know all the phases and how it all ties together.
Shhh they aren't listening.

Actually, I feel that the architect he spoke off that "wrote the poem for him" (not sure if that quote is exact but i believe the premise is the same)is mother nature or the divine one himself. The geography or landscape was made by the above person(s) and Forest mimicked it in the form of a poem. The architect themself took millions of years to create this unique area and forrest translated it in words and in less than twenty years.

RE: The architect
I'm a city building inspector... and I have to read architect's plans daily at job sites every day.

My take is this: Architect is pure designer however always with the Vision of the Final product... So Fenn "designed" his poem like a Vision and with that he knows every window, door, roof type, room facing direction, floor plan flow... etc. He made his plan to perfection and chose his location and contents wisely. Architect's pass on their Vision to the Engineer who designs the integrity of the structure (Fenn played engineer too.. he chose the Bronze structure).

Now.. If only he could hire me to "inspect its contents" I would no longer punch a clock being a City inspector any longer.. :-)

Architect... its all about the "design". He only showed us a few pages of the specs.. but we don't have the blue prints we need to "Build" the path to it.

Fenn.. If you are reading my rant, you can stop chuckling now. Throw us out some more Clues won't ya!?!?
