Re: rain

Judih, thanks. I have an edit button but don't see any "Delete" button, unless You just have to back space everything you wrote. I was looking for a "Delete" button. Hopefully I won't have that problem much. Note: I saw the X when I was going to submit this particular message but not in my previous ...

Re: rain

How do you delete a comment post. My computer is acting up----plus I often don't know what I'm doing. I wanted to make a comment and I did but I didn't want the same comment to appear 4 times. Once is sufficient. How do you delete the other 3 ?

Poem

I'm writing my dream on Kleenex. It will be crumbled in the bathroom waste can. Outside the wind is talking to a neighbor. The lawn crew down the street is talking to no one. The shadows of trees are on many lawns. The dark night is riding in a carriage jostling, clacking, shuddering, behind curtain...

Re: An Idiosyncratic Poem Enthralled With Its Own Voice

No comments? I guess the poem makes its own comments. Political poems? I wish I could lessen my anger at the clown, at evangelicals, at Moscow Mitch, but I find writing about just stirs the coals of anger. Also have a computer problem, making it hard to type on the computer, navigate. Hope to have t...

Re: P.I.T.A.

Love the poem. Punctuates the punctuation with hitherto unforeseen meaning.

Re: only bodies stop working

This is a moving poem. It evolves into a good place----the grief is certainly not gone but you have come to terms with it. You have transformed it.

An Idiosyncratic Poem Enthralled With Its Own Voice

Don’t feel like writing but My conscience says WRITE You (not Deixis-----I’m referring to myself) Live only once And you want to leave a mark A notch on the tree A trail sign Which may be a tall plant’s stalk Tied into a knot Or maybe just some inane sentences But they are mine written down Maybe po...

Re: A Christian Nation?

the paradox is that people get numb to the slaughter but not really numb. deep inside ordinary thinking and feeling people---not the deranged or the brutes or the plantation owners who look at people as assets or costs---are fundamentally disturbed, angry, afraid, despairing.

A Dirge of Some Kind

crab claws
torn off
pried open
the meat of well-being
stripped
devoured by ravenous
beings
that eat everything
leave nothing
in the muck and drip
but shells
and the ugly poisonous
innards
that are
unfortunately
life's necessity

Dark As Solitude Can Be

Dark as solitude can be But there are stars Faint yet visible Certainly others that you believe are there Only too much illumination tricks the eye The faint universe vanishes Light slaps you awake Albeit gently Like an interrogator Half-rough, half-gentle A Russian spy trained to extract But a woma...
