Visiting Sandburg's Homeplace

For we all love a wild girl keeping a hold on a dream she wants, singer, dancer, passionate lover.." Excerpt From "Gone" Carl Sandburg There's a turnstile where prize roses stood, and for two bucks I can stand where you stood pissing after a hard session of black coffee and rewrites. The lake where ...

Re: What It's Really Like

Thanks Bob. I knew it was risky to post. Some topics aren't well suited for poetry,and some poems just aren't that appealing. You've been generous.

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 unfortunate. It's too hard to tell a dream from a memory, memory from fantasy, fantasy from actuality. Memor...

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 ...

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: Impossible Love

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

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
