The Lonely Lane

2018-05-22
I second Pony. This is a first- class poem.


populism

2018-05-22
They don't need to vote for anyone. They will remain where they are.


A Triolet

2018-05-16
Nicely done.


a wise man

2018-05-15
I don't think that you can act any other way.


The lonely fight

2018-05-15
Very nice.


Portugal

2018-05-15
Nicely done, Elle. I love it when those old sensations appear out of nowhere.


I think Iím...

2018-05-11
That's the killer. The mind can't seem to absorb the notion that its owner has gotten old.


Sunrise [Revised]

2018-05-11
Nicely done, Tom. Lethargy-as-liturgy seems to be going around.


No Senescence

2018-05-11
This is a fun poem, Dave. I don't think that we would be able to relax. After all, when going backward, birth becomes the moment of extinction. There's always an end.


Dreamily Drunk

2018-05-09
Nice!


Where I Live with Me

2018-05-04
So it seems. We are grateful for the wry narrative that accompanies it.


Rain in Dublin

2018-04-21
I enjoyed this poem, not only because it reminded me of my youth in Seattle, where the inhabitants also loathe hot, dry weather.


Letter to the World

2018-04-21
Enjoyable, stylish dyspepsia.


A happy day

2018-04-20
Very nice.


a poem that wasn't meant to be

2018-04-17
That's how the mind of a writer works. It isn't real until it's written.


Not Quantum Physics

2018-04-17
Alas, a physicist might challenge both of your assertions (and leave you with a headache).


Thicket and Thorp [Revised]

2018-04-17
Charmingly exuberant!


Hope You Don't Mind

2018-04-12
Sir, you stand accused of using a floutation device, to wit, your less-than-autonomous fifth couplet. Henceforth, such transgressions will force ua to place you in the category of "gas ghazaler."


Nantucket

2018-04-11
Nicely done. Ahab acquires a context, and becomes domesticated.


Still Looking

2018-04-08
The way you have written this perfectly matches what you were writing about. I also like it.


Arlington

2018-04-08
Quite a bit cheerier than Bibek's, equally as nicely written.


Kathmandu

2018-04-08
Well done! The answer to your final question: probably not.


brain

2018-04-05
It is a kind of work when the brain tries to tell itself that it's not working.


Aging

2018-04-05
Nice poem. I'm not so sure that the mirror is truthful.


You Say Love

2018-04-01
Well done!


A Gift-wrapped Day

2018-04-01
And a gift for us, too. What placid, beautiful poem.


Waiting Words

2018-04-01
A sad story well told. I do miss the old days of going to look up a word, and then being distracted for hours by those around it.


Primavera

2018-04-01
A perfect spring poem.


love and racism

2018-04-01
Possibly.


Terza Rima

2018-03-28
Very amusing.


Incorrigible

2018-03-28
A roue's tale, well told.


AGRICULTURAL PANICHIDE by Ann Wood

2018-03-25
This is how things are everywhere. It is how things are here in Nebraska.


Lenten Drinking Song

2018-03-25
Brilliant writing, fine sentiment.


Bits of Life

2018-03-22
I believe you, and you're right.


1000 men

2018-03-22
Effortlessly, they could do a lot. Whether they choose to do so is another matter.


Lifescape

2018-03-22
Great writing, Joe. You brought me there with admirable grace.


The Relic

2018-03-22
Nicely done, Bibek.


What's in a Name?

2018-03-19
Shameless, yes. Also quite funny.


My Last Poem

2018-03-16
Kerouac's freedom always was an illusion, but the illusion remains. All you need are a car and a couple of days off to find and enjoy it. Head west.


1992

2018-03-15
Well played! Though I've never embraced Christianity, my story was very similar fifteen years earlier.


We Never Quite Know

2018-03-15
Agreed! Around here, the forsythias lead the way. When their cheery yellow flowers appear, we are assured that the dark days have passed.


Love it or leave it

2018-03-12
It sounds like every place: lots of reasons to stay, lots of reasons to leave.


Screaming Under Water

2018-03-12
What a terrifying, painful experience! You're lucky to have survived. Great title.


Only the Stars

2018-03-08
Once again, very nice; simple and to the point.


Singing

2018-03-08
This very nice.


I think of you

2018-03-08
Sweet, simple and effective.


March Moods

2018-03-05
Well done, Elle. I shivered as I read this.


Chasing the Waves

2018-03-05
A sweet, pleasant poem, absolutely outstanding writing.


Blue Whale

2018-03-05
I really enjoyed this poem, but I think that blue whales may lead happier and less solitary lives than you imagine.


Ping Pong

2018-03-05
Nicely done.
