Re: After a Documentary on Michelangelo's David

Thanks Bob. I appreciate your support. You should watch that documentary. It took 40 men to move the statue through the streets

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

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 ...

M C Escher's " Drawing Hands"

The Creator toiled through the genus of Euclidean Geometry and the Moorish Alhambra, to show in perpetuity that once there were two hands trapped on paper, that struggled to draw each other into existence. First a shoulder, then a torso, limbs. Over billions of years, they fillled in the correct ana...

I'm going with this as the final, good or bad. Thanks for all the input.

Re: Big Band Theory V 2

Your critique of the original made me want to dp better . That's the point. Bernie was that way. I sure miss him.

I may not be quite done. Most of my stuff, I never revise. I see no resolution to the change of tense

Thanks a ton Bob. I made a few more edits
