i know what elizabeth's been doing, lately . . . WRITING! "thx for the memory," i think. wait a sec?
A Casual Thing (Poetry) - 12/12/2002 10:22:53 PM
i think i just had a "joycian epiphany..." great writing, e! i had to re-reread each line, returning "for the words..." for the Meaning's in each word...this line took me five times: "We wake to a painted on dawn." and What a Pleasure.
LSD (Poetry) - 11/30/2002 7:37:36 PM
Beautiful poem. Loved it. Was it really LSD-induced? :)

Off With the Wizard of Jaws (Poetry) - 11/26/2002 7:54:20 PM
Short and to the point.
Concrete Concubine (Poetry) - 11/26/2002 3:52:44 PM
This was my 'signature poem' when I worked with a great group of poets in Chicago. You're right - it has been edited over the years - but it was the only poem I had that would silence not only the poets and artists in the room, but the Latin Kings and barfly's too.
Eight Halsted (Poetry) - 11/26/2002 3:50:53 PM
No I was writing exactly what they said - seriously, I was writing it down as it was uttered. I'll give it a 10, of course.
Mundane (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 11:57:32 PM
devilish . . . torturious . . . TEASING!!!

Szzzzzzz (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 11:52:35 PM
you DO have a "flare" for meter and sparcity of language, which, i think, works very well w/your style and the way you use words to convey meaning, theme, setting, and tonality...
Three am Love Song (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 11:24:09 PM
wow! (2nd "10" from me, tonight!) i "sort of" question the "moral:", at the end, but...i dunno...it "works"!
what i've done? i've "spiritualize" 'em (_viz_: i have BURNT them . . .) either that, or i've "lost them" in a big, brown grocery sack atop the car when i was ooooooo so ever so much looking forward to a full, drunken wkend w/"them" to comiserate...
Eight Halsted (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 11:12:01 PM
great! i loved the vernacular (and, i doubt if "that's what they ACTUALLY said," unless you were tape recording--_a la_ w.s. burroughs!--meaning: i think that you don't have to even mention that, at all.) i'm sure your "artistry" and "workmanship" and "ear for language/meter/rythmn" had MUCH to do about it! great poem...i think i'll "steal" the "dramatic monologue" format, in fact. THX!
Concrete Concubine (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 10:58:00 PM
first "10" i've given you! this one...how many times did you re-write it? i cannot yet say exactly "why," but, while reading this the first time i "felt" as if i were walking "down" a mountain, or (_a la_ "spiderman"); climbing "down" a skyscraper...hmm . . .
Top Ten Things You Don't Say to a Poet (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 10:50:10 PM
roflmao!!! yes--#4 IS "rich," isn't it?!? (that's what my ex used to say when i finished...nevermind!)
my "worst retort" to hear after someone reads something of mine? (and: this is why i've long ago stopped giving unpublished manuscripts to friends and family):
"i liked it..."
i've a "top-ten poem," somewhere, too (i think it's regarding tibetan monks)! i'll try and find it. thx for the inspiration, elizabeth!
Anything (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 10:39:12 PM
hmm...interesting! a "twister," for sure, but...(i WAS poetry editor at a.s.u.'s _hayden's ferry review_ for two-yrs, whoopie!) would you consider how I would make it:
"i think (i'd) find
i wouldn't mind
not doing anything at all
"if it were you
i was not doing
anything (with) at all"
(and No Capitalization; No Punctuation, throughout!) what'd'ya think (he asks before she even asked him!) "how'd'ya like me NOW?!?"
Sorrow (Poetry) - 11/25/2002 10:24:42 PM
nice . . . i am beginning to really enjoy your sometimes "shortish," haiku-like, dickinsonesq style! (if it were mine, i'd put a "dash" at the end of the third line...but, that's just me: the Capricorn-critic!)

Goodbye (Poetry) - 11/18/2002 11:22:36 PM
somehow, i think we know and understand exactly what you mean, here, and how it feels. i know i do. it's like looking into a mirror and seeing your long, lost twin.
Thinking of You (Poetry) - 11/18/2002 11:19:25 PM
now, THIS is interesting! i loved the "meaning(s) betwixt the words..." much of what is NOT said is what i heard the Loudest! as if the person singing these lyrics hadn't actually written them...save the fact that she is Lying, i just might have to Believe her!
