Rough proposals with poetry
1.the art of rhythmical composition, 
written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, 
or elevated thoughts.
2. an invitation, open call for Mistakes as an poetic action.
3. a start from zero on a playing field, clear rules to follow, full stops, 
winners and losers, no tricks, no simultaneous movement except linear regression.
4. a highly effective methodological strategy to constitute violent terror towards innocent individuals.
5. a by-product of contemplation, the fruition of embodiment.
6. the moment when two or more things or beings collide, change and meet at the end.
