Re: Ode to Olive Oil

I think of Palestine when it comes to olive trees. There is a satisfying warmth in this Bob. Very approachable

Re: Manifesto

There is the danger of being too "preachy" in s poem like this. I think the first stanza could be left out.. The last 2 lines are masterful. If there was a way to cut say, " to keep us moving forward" after carrot and stick, and similarity throughout so what precedes the last two lines sets them up ...

Re: Manifesto

This is a poetry workshop, a forum where we help each other improve our craft. It isn't a forum on faith, personal religious beliefs or non-beliefs. Tolerance of others' beliefs(or non-beliefs) is a low threshold we should all be able to meet. A reasonable person would know this without having to be...

Re: Manifesto

Judy. Just to say, 99.9% of the poets here are not offended by poems like this. We don't see a spiritual battle, or feel a compulsion to correct the beliefs of another. We don't abuse the forum.

That being said, I'll be back later to comment on the work itself

Re: Untitled

No such thing as too long. However some judicious stanza breaks might benefit the poem. I think it a good poem. Engaging, easily relatable

Re: A Tryst

I get that it's a dreamscape and thus the feelings are not necessarily rooted in some event. I've had those kind of nightmares and they feel horrible.

Arguing With my Brother

Kenneth. I believe with all my heart
Donald Trump is a Christian.

You're shitting me. The man
is a serial adulterer.

God is a forgiving God
His hand is on Trump.

Well if there is a place for him
in Heaven, I don't want to go.

Be careful what you ask for !

Oh go fuck yourself.

Re: When They Make The Movie of Your Life

Yeah this is clever. And like the use of music to heighten tension, the narrator doesn't give any details about her life. This is highly imaginative. Good job.
