parallel veins, graceful curves

Parallel Venation . . .  Strong, simple, sensuous curves. Remarkably, this
is the form, or the quality of movement, which is very much absent in Western culture.
Almost every city in North America is dominated by a straight-line grid; Almost
all commercial music is dominated by a hard-as-nails, square-as-a-box, 4/4 rhythm.

And poetry? Well, that's different. Nowadays, it hardly has form at all!
Good reason to quit the books for a while, and go out for some fresh air and
a long walk in a deeply shaded wood. A symphony of forms awaits you.
