A log for Bea

Fantastic! I love the line about neighbours being full of Gordon's gin. I like it all actually. Was the tree saved? Perhaps not if it was split.


Remember Me

Wow. The end is a kicker. Great stuff.

Churchmead Cherry

So sad. You make it sound like an execution, which I suppose it was.


Not My Planet

2019-06-21
I like the way you write. Streams of meaningful awareness.


Randomalia (2010)

All great. I like one about NFL, as a foreigner that's how it seems to me.


I have wanted you

2019-06-21
Nice, with a hint of obsession :)

Write It On Your Heart

2019-05-30
I like this one. I wrote a poem yesterday using the word "sonorous" so you beat me to it you rascal. I live the acrobatic harmonics of certain accents too.


Embossed Love

2019-05-27
Thank you for the applauds one trick pony and Thomas DeFreitas :)


Protean

Goodbye Baby Goodbye Bathwater

Interesting how you allocate the labels. I do hope that modern science holds tight to the walls of the tub..


Thank You for Your Condolences and Kindness

2019-05-15
My dear friend I am so sorry for your loss. I would not even begin to try and understand the grief that you must be feeling. You are a wonderfully caring person who embodies the essence of a loving life. I wish you the solace of all the good things in the world and hope that comfort and love gets you through these dark days. <3


Scollay Square Song

Another bar room. You could do a whole book full of these. I like the "voluptuous train-crash", it is so appropriate.


Yet Another Stopped Clock Poem

2019-05-10
Wonderful Tom. I think I have been to that bar many times. There is an art to dealing with a barmaid (and not getting kicked out)


Invasive Species

2019-05-09
Amazing :)


General Lavine

2019-05-09

A monologue for a derelict

2019-05-09
There is nothing sadder than a dilapidated house or building that hold so many memories. Nicely done Joe.


Madonna of the Clothespin Shrine

2019-04-30
I don't want to try and be clever or perhaps mischievous for you obviously hold it and what it represents dear to yourself. I love small objects and as part of my OCD have a tenancy to collect them. This piece is grand in feeling even though the object is small. I like it all, even the pimplesized candlewick :)


When Thought And Reason Go Asunder

2019-04-30
Happy Birthday Mr furry whatnots. I love this. You know what they say, forgetfulness is all in the........um.


Three Choruses

2019-04-09
I love the rhymes. Disco and Nabisco, Fitzgerald and imperilled, man you are the tops :)


Gratitude

2019-04-09
Acceptance and gratitude are calming indeed.


Remember those conversations...

2019-04-09
I am old enough to remember pre-mobile phones and internet and it was a different world. Not better or worse, just different. The point you make is true though I think.


Once

2019-04-09
Unfortunately that is the world today. Nicely done.


Dead & Gone

2019-04-09
Well said.


Dead leaves

2019-04-09
How sad. But beautifully told.


Mists

2019-04-03
This is marvelous. Wonderful rhymes and feelings portrayed in the perfect vernacular. I am in awe of your talent :)


My Old Clothes

2019-04-03
This is so great. You are still you, don't worry. A beautiful soul with a gifts that time cannot take away. Celebrate your individuality and wonderful skill with words. As you say in the last paragraph, laugh as a child :)


Lowcountry Swing (A tribute to Thomas’ recent old dry dock poem)

2019-03-29
Great stuff. Who would have thought that Willy Nelson and Frank Sinatra sat side by side in a jukebox. You mention karaoke so it must a recent scene. Did you sing?


The Old Dry Dock

2019-03-29
I love it. The atmosphere is captured and the rhymes are great.


Great Expectations.

2019-03-29
Well done :)


Limbo

Maybe we all live in limbo. Waiting for things to get better. I like this.


for laurie bird

She left us too early. I saw her in Two-Lane Blacktop. Nice she is still thought of.

2019-03-23
I like the flow and I can feel the atmosphere. Nice :)


To be free...

I mean't conscience :)


Two Poems, Call Them What You Will

2019-03-19
I like the "there's a" litany. I like it all actually. It runs like a novel.


Sunday

2019-03-19
I really like this. Dad's always have a breakfast homily. And I smiles at the hope of homework "miraculously done". You have a fine memory for details.


Minstrels

2019-03-19
Wonderful. It is like I am there. And it happens every weekend! I love the rhymes too. I think I will have a beer with Fierce Frank in the Thirsty Old Newt, he sounds like a character :)


To be free...

2019-03-19
I hope he is free now from the bad memories. I continually cannot believe how horrid people can be to people of their own species. It is good that people like you continue to pass on their story. In hope it will not happen again. But unfortunately it does.
This is what poets do. They are the conscious of a sad world. Bravo.


A WOMAN OF CHRISTCHURCH NEW ZEALAND!

2019-03-19
Well done Ken. It is good to hear a positive heroic story from such a tragic event.
