The Tocsin

Very powerful Joe. The repeating bell sound drives the anguish.
Nice positive ending too.


Sonnet to a cat

2019-08-22
Wonderful. It reminds me of the old grey and white stray that kept coming into our backyard. You are torn between accepting and rejecting such things. I don't normally like sonnets, but I like this one.


the pink room

2019-08-22
Well done indeed. It reads like the beginning of a fine movie.

2019-08-22
It;s nice to give thanks :)


Arbeit Macht Frei

2019-08-22
I don't think this is in bad taste. The saying is obviously correct to a degree. Moa's China had the same idea. It is only the extreme and lack of morality that demonizes it. Thanks for making us think.


China’s Wonders

2019-08-09
Great stuff. I may go there one day :)


My best shot

2019-08-08
I hope not. Your work is always enjoyable.


Zen

2019-08-07
Wonderful Joe. It floats with peace.


we speak in italics

2019-08-07
So powerful and incredibly relevant. The older generation must be wondering what went wrong.


In Praise to the Love of a Parent

2019-07-24
Nicely done. Some people say nothing is eternal, but I think a parent's love is.


Still skating

2019-07-24
At least you are still having a go (as we say in Aus). Perhaps all the accoutrements are simply a sign of a modern cotton ball society :) I enjoyed this


be still

2019-07-24
Nicely done. The last stanza is great.


That Part Never Was Explained

2019-07-24
I never understood that part of the story. What escape? Maybe it was a long wig. Thanks for showing me I am not alone in the way I think.


Feeling hot, but...

2019-07-24
What an interesting super power. I enjoyed this!

Nice and simple Sameen. But very meaningful.


Overheard at the Workshop

2019-07-24
Does it really account for that much? I am surprised. I kind of understand what was said because I even get sick of my own :)


Darkness I feel

2019-07-24
Such a sad piece but beautifully expressed. I hope your world becomes a little lighter ;)


I'am falling inlove

2019-07-23
Nice. Maybe you are in love with love ;)

very nice :)

Rose eroticism :)


Outdoor Concert

2019-07-20
Nice. A few moments captured.


Blue Moon

2019-07-20
Nice :) Some things must be remembered.


GULLS RIGHT CLEVER BLIGHTERS (Addishanal Stanza) (Inspired By A Work By Marie Cadavieco)

2019-07-19
Lolol. A gull puffing a ciggie. You make it sound like Hitchcock's The Birds. Great stuff ken.


A New Art Form

2019-07-19
But do you make a strange noise when you bend down? Do you have 2 pairs of glasses and walk around with the wrong ones on sometimes? These are also telling signs of decrepitude. Maybe it is all as you say modern "the art of dying" as opposed to George Harrison's one. Not sure if you mean't these in jest, but you have made me think.


Five in the Morning

2019-07-19
I really like your last line here too. All poets are dreamers I think.


This Time, You Choose

2019-07-19
Sounds pretty desperate. The term "ersatz sheik" is interesting. The story continues.


Decluttering

2019-07-19
I love it Marie. Why not make everything we keep based on joy.
Take it all the way to the top and have politicians dressed as clowns telling jokes instead of arguing :)


Remembering

2019-07-16
Nice. There is nothing better than an old friend to share memories with. (and a drink)


Devotional

2019-07-16
Beautiful. Dewdrop rosary beads :) Wish i could write like that.


A log for Bea

2019-07-16
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

2019-07-16
Wow. The end is a kicker. Great stuff.


Tiger Lillies

2019-07-04
So beautiful and delicate, like the flowers.


remind me of you

2019-06-21
The first is always memorable.


Churchmead Cherry

2019-06-21
So sad. You make it sound like an execution, which I suppose it was.


I have wanted you

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


her sewing basket

2019-06-18
As it is, it is art. And now it is a great poem.


Singing silence

2019-06-18
Indeed it is.


Vergine Madre, figlia del tuo Figlio

2019-06-18
Positively lovely :)


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.


Goodbye Baby Goodbye Bathwater

2019-05-15
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

Another Lovesong

2019-05-09
Great stuff Bibek :)


Love at first sight

2019-05-09
Wonderful. Gotta watch out for those "cornflower eyes" :)


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.


When Thought And Reason Go Asunder

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