You convey your panic ably.


Blessed Space

You nailed this one, Thomas. What graceful writing.


Steam

Nice, a refreshing perspective on something we see all the time.


muse assistants

2023-05-19
Disturbing! Nice writing.


S W E D I S H .......?

2023-05-13
Two fair questions. One hundred years ago, I easily could have found someone around here who could teach me Swedish or Danish or Norwegian. Not anymore. Now, Iím lucky to find someone who's good at English.


Mirabeau by Guillaume Apollinaire

2023-05-10
Nicely done, Thomas. Apparently, you're not the one you wrote about who was allergic to Apollinaire.


Three Sides of One (Being): Corrected!

2023-05-09
An interesting lap around the notion of identity.


Picket Fence

2023-05-09
Plastic fences are all the rage around here. You're right that they're ugly to begin with, and they're not immune to the forces of nature. Like wooden fences, they deteriorate, but they are not picturesque as they do.


Songs On The Voices Of Birds. A Poet In His Youth, And The Cuckoo-Bird.

2023-05-08
Itís not really very good, but it has a slightly endearing delirious weirdness.

2023-05-07
Some fun word play here.


heartless

2023-05-07
Life is a cruel, zero-sum process.


Fridge over troubled waters

2023-05-07
Brilliant title!


Genderless, Uncaring Nature

2023-05-07
True enough. If you make your living from the land and the sky, you're at their mercy.


Cinders

2023-05-07
This is wonderful, Elle. Itís very sad to look at old photographs, knowing what was to come.


Quick Coucou

2023-05-06
Great news. When you have more to say, we're here.


Lent 1992

2023-05-04
I'm intrigued by the line breaks.


Poet bay

2023-05-03
I agree. Not many people seem to be coming around lately.


Rather the Point

2023-05-03
I know that feeling well.


Walking Between the Raindrops

2023-05-01
A fine snapshot.


come and get it

2023-04-26
Nicely done.


THE MIRROR NEVER LIES

2023-04-25
I agree. It seems best to avoid mirrors, and continue being that "indeterminate age." Doing so allows one to continue to curse those doddering fossils who clog store aisles and streets.


Okay Day

2023-04-24
Fine wordplay.


An Afternoon in 1984

2023-04-22
And poignant.


At the Pond

Sounds like a most enjoyable show.


A Box for Black Paul

2023-04-18
Nicely done, Sameen. Very amusing. Your family must be more devout than mine. I don't even know where my grandparents are buried.


two poems

2023-04-17
Very nice.


Spring in War Time

2023-04-17
Excellent.


G O D return - 2.0

Excellent point.


Lost Trade and Quiet Dignity

2023-04-13
A fine vignette.


TIME FOR A PANEGYRIC

2023-04-11
You have honored the man, Allen.


Oh perfect Day

2023-04-11
A pleasantly graceful description of a day spent gracefully.


Witches

2023-04-11
Well written, Thomas. I hear faint echoes of another Thomas, your revered Dylan, in this. The third line is dynamite.


Surprise

2023-04-06
Life is full of surprises, some good, some not good. Congratulations!


Kobe beef syndrome

2023-04-04
There's a lesson to be learned here: those who put you at ease eventually may consume you.


Unsent Letter

2023-04-04
We know what we ought to do. We don't do it. Nicely written, Thomas.


80 and april

2023-04-04
Sometimes, there's great satisfaction in doing something which needs to be done.


MUSHROOM LESSONS

2023-04-03
An interesting meditation. Sometimes, these are set off by the simplest things.


1827; Or, The Poet's Last Poem

2023-04-03
Hmm. It seems that things haven't changed much over the last 200 years. Fun poem!


This

2023-03-29
Agreed!


An Anglerís Day

And now for something a little macabre.

Well said.


reverse thesis

2023-03-26
Wherever they came from, the billionaires all end up living in the US or western Europe. They don't need to move to a poor country to make it rich. They just have to move their factories.


listening to the carmell jones quartet on a rainy day

2023-03-25
Who's to say that your time could be better spent?


tell me what madness is...

2023-03-23
We cannot be this person, so we cannot know what he perceives.


The Lonely Sentinals

2023-03-20
Nicely done, Joe.


Daffodils

2023-03-17
I usually don't like haikus, but this one succeeds. It says all that needs to be said, and does so artfully. Well done, Dougie.


Future Poetry

2023-03-15
A dopey poem, nicely rhymed.
