  1. My studio is basic
    Where I try to be poetic
    While I listen to my music
    Both classical and dynamic

    My words can be romantic
    Rustic, tragic, and optimistic
    Sometime cryptic and eccentric
    I am neither academic nor noetic

  2. Thank you for increasing my knowledge. I shall now measure each of the many mystical experiences common in my part of the world, by its noetic value. A very underused term.
