What It's Really Like

There is supposed to be walls, containment, a separation. I need medication to attain this. A sound or smell, a scenario in a book, something a friend shares, can trigger a tsunami of emotion unproptionate. It's too hard to tell a dream from a memory, memory from fantasy, fantasy from actuality. Mem...

No longer in that environment, but there are bosses I've had who are still breathing only because I have a fear of prison

Re: After a Documentary on Michelangelo's David

Frank. You lied when you said it was "your understanding " about a rule concerning the number of posts per month so that "Admin can carefully read each one.: Your comment was a passive aggressive attempt to disparage Admin for calling you out publicly over your abuse of the forum., and a lame crack ...

Re: After a Documentary on Michelangelo's David

Michael. I don't recall precisely what the documentary said about "life like." Thanks for the suggestive edits. Frank, thank you for commenting. Oh one last thing, I understand that it is expected that poets post only 4 poems per month so as to give the admin the opportunity to read them all careful...

Michelangelo's David

Risking prison, the artist dissected A corpse to understand the mechanics of sinew, muscle and tendon . Body flawless in Cararra marble, five hundred years he has suffered the indignity of uncircumcision, the shepherd king with sling and stone. In youth. I backed down a giant or two, could turn the ...

Re: Traveling in Mexico

Catholics are really big on symbolism, but I've never heard of a cross like you describe.Sounds almost like a hybrid of Mayan and Christianity

Re: Impossible Love

Nice first poem. I like how you play with time/hours/now/no tomorrow. Makes it all seem almost stolen love.

I wouldn't mind a stanza or two more, but brevity has its place. Welcome to the Block.

Re: Traveling in Mexico

I would submit that the use of fail/failed in such a short poem is less powerful than the use if another word.


Very good poem, easy to relate to. Nicely paced and not overdone

Re:   on the 47th anniversary

This has the gentleness of Hopkins. Like the Romulus and Remus reference in light of what eventually happened to Rome. Then the alpha reference pertaining to the wolf as well as Alpha and Omega. Lot of layers that escape a casual read. Enjoyed

The Return

On that great and terrible day, The moon will hide its face, Rivers roil and run black with blood. The Lord will come on a cloud In great power and glory ,assemble The faithful according to their deeds, Tie back Her golden hair, Hike up Her skirt, kick them Square in the nuts and say, "How you like ...
