Self and reality. Symbol and language. Myth and image. Memory and consciousness.

Possible resources of subjects for professional wrestling sonnets. Because the subjects are not traditional, nor “appropriate” for poetry, they become a valid source for poetry. Inverse logic. The pop cultural references transcend from the flat commercial prospects to higher artistic topics. As long as the themes center around the theatrics and surreal notions of the events— plus the admission of the sonnets acting as fictions— then the material should work.

Frank Gotch
Ed Lewis
Gorgeous George
Lou Thesz
Bruno Sammartino
Von Erich family
Andre the Giant
They exist as examples of contradictions of the expectations of poetry. Worth experimenting, toying with the notion.
