|These words are "right on"! For some reason I hear these words reflected best by the style found in rap music. Hot stuff, babe!

|It's within our blood isn't it? Each of us see's ourselves differently then the others see us. A good writer rarely realizes they are :-) True of artist too :-)............anyone in the world of creativity, within the space that few can bring to words, but we all know them as we read them.|

|If you throw enough shit at a wall, some of it is bound to stick. Every so often, I step back and gaze upon the crap I've been spewing. If I find one good one out of 10 written, I consider it a successful journey. You, my friend, are much closer to perfection.

|Is it a trap, or could it be a safe haven, "trapping OUT" the extraneous noise and self-destruct mode our modern society tends to use as sermon to increase its flock of followers, perpetuating far too much falsehood? As to the safe haven possibility, one must ask: am I being more honest a person by this exercise of laying down word-lines as opposed to the little white ones far too many indulge in their effort to find the repose you seem to have found. Having read most of your work, the self-depreciation seems a bit too judgmental of yourself. I would argue poets are all students of life and especially those aspects that remain abstract. As such, we are always learning and applying said lessons to the task of being as honest with our words as possible. For me, it's that simple. Any other perception of poetic struggle by readers and critics is probably agenda-homogenized for the benefit of the person or persons assuming they know better. So, keep writing. If it ever gets as bad as you suspect, your readers--or lack of--will send the message loud and clear.|

|Bad poetry? Jerry I love your poetry, you are my inspiration and my mentor. You have enlightened me so and in every word you pen it is coming from your soul! Each morning I wake it is what I look forward to reading, using your own intimate past you are one of the most creative writers I know! You have helped me in countless ways even if you are not aware. It is most definitely not "twaddle" it is fantastic! For my idea you are a master poet!
Hugs darlin' - don't ever think for a moment what you write is "bad poetry" jaysus

|Please continue this poetical dead art, you're briljant.
I every day look forward what "twaddle" you've up your sleeve for us.

If yours is twaddle then ones like me are really in trouble, your writes are from the heart and there are many, like me who wait to see what the next one will say.

|"Reading your twaddle" is always in interesting experience, Jerry. No two pieces are ever alike and there is that little extra surprise every time.
