My Old Clothes

Love this poem..On one reading I read it as an ode to aging nudity...To be critical I think it was stronger when I read it without the third verse. Anyway thanks.


alone with my thoughts

I shed a tear for everyone that has loved. Faced with infinity we are all losers.

1st verse a gentle family snapshot. I find the 2nd scary (we can ignore the metaphysics) Really good.

Vengeance of God - Part 2

I think killing a plumber or a trash collector would be worse...they at least have occupations that have some use to the rest of us...

I know I'm not PC (Poetically Correct) but I'd dump the last two verses...otherwise love it.

I just reread this and it's better the second time around...haunts me...entwining itself with my memories...my mother comes to mind so dedicated and so tragic...


Many a Day, I think what I could've been.

Life sucks and then you die dude...get used to it...lol...


In Memory of One Dead Soldier

Thank you for the pain and tears...


Is Sisyphus Happy?

2015-06-13
lol...love it...I could write a book analysing this poem...the first words I heard from my philosophy professor “You might not learn anything from my lectures, but I guarantee, you'll be confused on a much higher level.”


Silent

Deep and disturbing...respect

I've discovered you..your poems...you have awakened welcome feelings in me...this one reminds me of English 'Kitchen Sink' theatre. The banal flatly-delivered words that hide a world of the unnamed existentiel crises.

A late birthday greeting...congratulations on a terrific poem.


Holding Hands

2015-06-10
As I am English (an island dweller) 'those in peril on the sea' was a standard hymn we 'sang' at school...I read this once as it is and then without the CAPS. Great write...IMHO a much better poem without them...I have no respect for religion (the most evil force on earth) in any form, including fascism, communism and nazism.

Nice to 'see' you again my lovely witch....The tail eating snake...beware of Jung lol...

Haunted by Dylan Thomas (in a good way)


thick and layered

2015-06-09
Sometimes you really are a poet...loved it


Religion...

2015-06-09
Thanks.
I can't help but disagree with Josephus...Racism is based upon fear which turns into hate...all religions are based upon the ugliest emotions that we experience...any religious person that claims humanistic values is a liar...without secularity there can be no humanity...what will they do if their imaginary friend tells them to enslave Africans because they are not created in his image..God said to Joshua Go thee down to Jerico and destroy every living thing....Hallefuckinglujah...
BTW
Believing
in a god
are(is) the primitives(primitive's)
right


Behind The Door

I have 5 kids 10 kid-kids and a kid-kid-kid. This poem just filled me with great memories..Football with my son-son, horse riding with my son-daughter etc..thanks.

Yes, yes...for a different take on sports you might like to read my 'the beautiful game'.

Killing Me

I live in Sweden...6 months of ice cold darkness every year. You captured the feeling perfectly.

I clench my fist...I want to punch him in the face...but there's another world out there...I am touched twice..


Zen my ass

Love it...Norrland has it's own mythology...

lest she throws dust in your eyes
and leads you ever deeper
into the forest's secret place

Wonderful sexual connotation or should I book a time with a shrink?


hot stuff

2015-02-18
Wow..good read and congrats...I awoke this morning feeling like 'an old man with broken teeth, stranded without love.' (Dylan).
You lifted me a bit.

Great read...I refused to crumble now I live alone...if one of a pair must crumble then there is no point.


Two to tango

I love your style...the words point between the lines.


Zen my ass

2015-02-16
lmao..this is so zen.


Cold

2015-02-16
I really know these feelings. Before I moved to Rinkeby I lived in the north of Sweden. Serious cold often down to -30c and I have experienced -43c (almost the same in F). And in one bitter winter my marriage fell apart. You captured it with insight.


You, Entering My Orifice

2015-02-10
What's this talk of cats? Cats didn't enter my mind...lol...loved this poem.


My eye & the fork part I & II

2015-02-10
Interesting...I sort of read as a debunk of the pseudoscience called psychology. All actions (including the way one eats) can be explained in any way one wishes.


The Friend

and love the reference to T.S.

scarred souls of ancient beatniks,
raggedy old vagabond of the night

Raised a smile on my 70 year old face...thanks


Casting for Worms

Reminds me of the golden age of English whimsical poetry. My day's first smile. Good to have you back. Have you read my 'there are unknown truths' a reply to Bliliths' challenge?
