Puttering Around the Kitchen at 3.56 am

2020-05-07
This is a fine example of a good poem with a mundane subject. What's described is far less important than the artistry of the description.

Why don't you reuse your spoons?


My walk down Warren Street

2020-05-06
Very nice.


day by day

2020-05-05
Good idea. I wish you well. It'd be interesting hear what Colt would say. It seemed like the big world didn't mean that much to him.

It will be interesting to see which changes are lasting, especially after the vaccine arrives.

My Inner Canon Lawyer Looks Askance at the Season of Spring

2020-04-22
Yes, to the dour barrister, exuberance is subversive.

2020-04-21
Coherent thought. That's a pretty bold departure.

2020-04-19
This is excellent, Tom, quietly powerful.


what the poem means

2020-04-19
A very nice tribute. I liked it a lot. Your professor reminds me of a fine old geezer I had for "Brit Lit."


another year, another song

2020-04-14
I love it!


just saying

2020-04-14
Since I'm the guy you squeeze your cart past as I'm setting out toilet paper and wet wipes, I can't afford to think about contagion, and I don't. My wife and most of my kids are willing to take their chances with me, but one daughter won't let me into her house, won't come over, and won't let me see my granddaughter. That's what you're supposed to do, I know, but it hurts.


love for small things

2020-04-13
So many tangible sensations are here. I'm tempted to call this poem "chewy." I like it.

My Garden Lives

2020-04-08
Very nice, Joe. Nature goes about its business, despite our troubles. We'll have our spring, too, at some point.

It does seem a bit early for such a judgment.
