Recent Reviews for Nicky Goodman

a flash before sunrise (Short Story) - 8/14/2009 9:06:28 AM
It's interesting to read this now that I put "Beginning" on line. Evocative mornings... I love your long sentences, the way they accompany the reader through feelings that seem inevitable. And the "floury lips" are a detail to remember. Axilea

Gratuitous Lesbian Sex Scene (Part One...) (Short Story) - 2/3/2009 10:22:25 AM
wow thats was hott! LOL i REALLY LOVED THE WHOLE "arse" thing. it really made the whole Irish-ness relevant. -Winter

The Roundhouse (Short Story) - 12/19/2008 5:48:29 PM
Dear Nicky,It is a vivid description of an evening at the theater. The Italians say: "Tradutore Traditore", which means a translator is a traitor. Don't expect Portuguese to sound like English, but you succeeded well. Thank you for sharing Emile

The Roundhouse (Short Story) - 12/19/2008 4:25:57 PM
So many sensations here, so many crowding images of people, places, touches and scents--a read like satin.

Postcards - Wood House (Short Story) - 12/9/2008 7:39:00 PM
In the stitch of time, woven threads of togetherness...Postcards - Wood House is motion oriented - family thriving on homespun love and the pattern of simplicity which reward the recipients with a postcard from home - the way it should be, Nicky...very constructive lattice work poetry where everyone is contributing and busy making the ties that well... Sage

Postcards - Wood House (Short Story) - 12/8/2008 11:15:27 PM
Thank you for inviting me and the rest of us into a new world of a family that have heart...loved it. fee

Postcards - Wood House (Short Story) - 12/8/2008 5:57:17 PM

Postcards - Wood House (Short Story) - 12/8/2008 8:00:50 AM
Nicky, All of the senses, in particularly hearing and taste, come into play: delicious gathering of family. Well done. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla " ... Beans simmer in the hiss and steam of summer-like Sunday. .... " SUBLIME

The Placebo Prayer (proseypoem) (Short Story) - 10/24/2008 1:59:27 PM

if the dress (flashfiction 140 words) (Short Story) - 7/22/2008 9:07:42 PM
I absolutely love this... a piece that breathes of the island's jargon and atmosphere. Rich with color. love it. --Charlie

Hey Saturn - where are you returning to? (prosepoem) (Short Story) - 3/6/2008 12:06:03 PM
A hatch, Hey Saturn...incubator full of wisdom and the cracked cosmic shell to prove it...self-love and self-acceptance is planetary, is an ever-evolving journey from to and fro in one's psyche...wonderful companion prosey/poem, but they each can also stand alone with fantastic message and beam me up wisdom...take care...have a hard-boiled egg today...crack outta the shell... Love, Sage

Hey Saturn - where are you returning to? (prosepoem) (Short Story) - 3/6/2008 4:10:06 AM
Interesting and unique, unfortunate that format was a little out of whack but overall a good write. Fee

Clima - his romance... (proseypoem type) (Short Story) - 2/11/2008 8:55:10 PM
oh, my goodness, Nicky, you have outdone yourself with this one!

Clima - his romance... (proseypoem type) (Short Story) - 2/5/2008 2:31:23 PM
What a line! "sing before the moon is lost in a thick yellow soup of sand" One-night stands, music lessons and the sandman well-negotiated - ART keeps us afloat, Nicky...this is a full ladle of warm soup and calico dreams polished from lyrical violin strings...billowing sails of canvas wonderfully scented with the sea breeze...nice poetry/prose...sail with me tonight, tenderoni? Love, Sage

Clima - his romance... (proseypoem type) (Short Story) - 2/5/2008 10:43:25 AM
touching story, it sent waves through my own soul having known such artists in Los Angeles, together, apart, together....the lifestyle and freedom waves you've painted with lovely prosey story poetry :)

The Magician and me (Short Story) - 1/11/2008 4:46:17 PM
Very good and I think I am beginning to like and understand Flash Fiction a little better with examples such as this coming out now and then for our benefit. Fee

The Magician and me (Short Story) - 1/11/2008 2:07:01 PM
Great story, Nicky; bravo! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :D

The Lechuguilla Caver (Short Story) - 10/24/2007 6:28:29 PM
I like the idea here "full of the softness of an Eskimo kiss." And I really, really like the "Shhh...walk on..." It is encouragement from someone who has been in experience of these cave emotions, that be you, continue on the journey beyond where the reward is worth the effort of the woman explorer to save her sexual identity...without losing her sanity...the prose here is an achievement and it feels almost like freeing a woman slave from hostile tribes of indifference...I need double-humped - as in camel -how are the camel roads and does it carry baggage! An Island safari we need, pack plenty of absinthe! Love, Sage

Gratuitous Lesbian Sex Scene (Part One...) (Short Story) - 8/23/2007 1:38:45 PM
Very well done and very erotic!

Card Reading (Short Story) - 8/23/2007 5:37:42 AM
Intriquing write for sure, with ideas left to challenge the reader to look for his own meanings in the cards and in the dream interpretation as well. Fee

Storgi (Short Story) - 8/23/2007 5:33:17 AM
Hi Fee - thank you - no, not 'care too much' - this is about how friendship is more important sometimes than ones own 'stubborn, naive and selfish' qualities - how friendship can override stubborn morale, a disagreement - Plato said something about imagining the Soul as a vase, with room to hold our friendships, and love. There is no Eros in this write - Phileo could have been the title, but that word has Latin sounding leanings for me (daughter/son) and i didn't want to use it. Agape - is unconditional - Storgos is affectionate love, like Nurture, like my friendships, is more human, and from Storgos, other loves can grow, which is where/why you may have felt there was 'care too much' in this write. Something like that! Thanks for commenting Fee xx

Storgi (Short Story) - 8/21/2007 4:49:21 AM
Sounds like two well intentioned friends who both care or care too much perhaps. Interesting and deep. Fee

Iridology (Short Story) - 8/13/2007 1:33:30 PM
This belongs to the iris of the eye or the rainbow...the extremely high intelligence level Iridology is written on, I would think, say to others, to question Sage Sweetwater's "Why be a C student---wake up, meet your brain!" It is if Ms. Goodman's voice is reincarnated of Iris, goddess of the rainbow, messenger of Zeus (Jupiter) and of Hera (Juno). This is a well-administered story/proseypoems, knowledgeably interpreted, indicating Ms. Goodman's giftedness from the eyes of this reader. Iridology measures the combination of balance, drives, and talents that produces the true miracle of a gifted and wise person---a person who should be listened to...I trust this, Nicky. SageX

Gratuitous Lesbian Sex Scene (Part One...) (Short Story) - 8/9/2007 4:56:39 PM
This is erotic lesbian writing at it's very best and the sensuality of it grabs the reader right where her hand did graba and holds a tight rein . Fee

Gratuitous Lesbian Sex Scene (Part One...) (Short Story) - 8/9/2007 12:14:22 PM
So Brazilian - you know - that thing they call the "landing strip" - just a runway of a patch of hair left, not touched by a wax job or "pinking shears" - all the way from clit to the anal sphincter - long, beautiful hair - grow it, show it - LONG, BEAUTIFUL HAIR!!! Who sang that?? Did they shave vaginas in the 60's, 1860s?? This would be a juicy read at Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues...there's a mouthful, no hair in your cube - OH, I like the feel of that - AD deleted my MELT, but I refroze my icecube tray and I am going to do MELT on my clit - Gratuitous Lesbian Sex Scene (Part One) is sexy. Put it in the Vagina category - no the ratings banner has been taken away on AD - but I rate this a CD - Cumming Delight - Warning: Are You Under 18, preferably ZERO orgasms - your monitored clit erection for today enforced by the poetry/story police. You should post more of these stories as dessert for your main course of poetry, Nicky...You're good, really good....ta ta tenderoni... Love, Sage

A Disturbance of Shen (Poetry) - 11/26/2013 1:46:09 PM
This is so far removed from the traditional "roses are red-violets are blue" humdrum poetry you see all the time from everyone and his brother. I love these lines as they jump through no hoops and scintillate the senses thoroughly with honest perspective and inspirational fodder for the rest of us who delve into these ripples of fine poetry. Excellent work, indeed! Amor

Telling stories... (Poetry) - 11/19/2010 11:17:30 PM
Your theme "speaks" of a universal and timeless journey; very nicely expressed and shared, Nicky. Thank you. Love and peace, Regis

She died I think, (Poetry) - 8/4/2010 7:57:48 PM
Nicky - Thank you for taking me on this journey with you, not a happy one but a profound one. You effectively create a sense of the loneliness of the human condition and then carry the poem further into the realm of one living thing comforting another. Many quotable lines, but I loved the understated intensity of, so all I could do was rest my hand on her body, One living being comforting another in away that transcends words. Very affecting poem without being the least bit sentimental. - David - David

Picasso (Poetry) - 1/5/2010 9:04:32 AM
Nicely done, Nicky. Love and peace to you, Regis

Seasonal Adjustment Disorder (Poetry) - 1/3/2010 7:34:48 AM
I think you captured things effectively... ...and shared them well. Thank you. Love and peace, Regis

Cicada (Poetry) - 11/10/2009 2:57:24 PM
Interestingly composed with a wonderfully sustained metaphor. I particularly like "whispering through the chink." For me it begs the question - if words are brick, are the emotions from which the words/bricks are born the chink - that which holds it all in place? If the emotions softened and opened, might the wall crumble? Might there be a return to the "knowing", "communicating", "connecting" that transcend the words?

Cicada (Poetry) - 10/31/2009 10:23:12 PM
I too like this poem. Oh, I like words, but there are none so calming as a simple hum, or chirrrrrup... it's nature's music. Here's to your cicada song unchinking that wall of yours. --Charlie

Cicada (Poetry) - 10/25/2009 10:15:16 AM
the wall I do not want to be building, I find this so apt and timely for me, Nicky. A friend of mind told me today that she doesn't know whether to keep building her walls or to knock them down and let go. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Sunsets (Poetry) - 4/27/2009 4:18:26 AM
How beautiful is this, Nicky? So sincere and without affectation or guile: you let the rawness of soft emotions have full rein here and the result is as gentle as it is powerful and strong. And I love the metaphor: a tender watercolour that packs a big-bang punch! The flick-book image is also such a rich "shorthand" visual of something that is built moment-by-moment but which endures to be a vehicle transporting and building the whole. Very nice work!! See you soon???!!! In olde London Town I'm thinkin??!! Kate xx

Reflection on a box of letters (Poetry) - 12/6/2008 4:47:06 PM
Is it? Or was the poet and reader just not in tune to the same way of love. Sometimes what once was romance in hindsight becomes just bad lust. I like this write and the sequence you let it flow through. hugs fee

Reflection on a box of letters (Poetry) - 12/6/2008 8:32:14 AM

Oh, Nicky. Undressed by the beauty, the tenderness of these exquisitely imaged lines: my favorite, " ... I could skate each curve of her with reflex ability ...." <--- You stuck the landing, perfectly! =] ((((HUGS)))) and love, Karla.

Told (Poetry) - 11/27/2008 2:41:11 PM
So much said and unsaid in the warp and weave of this one, Nicky. The busy preoccupation with "quiet things" belies the loud emotional traffic, sirens blazing, that is going on between two intricately-linked minds and souls. Silence can be golden. It can equally be laden, as here. Inferred need can be the most taxing because you can never be sure you are acquitted or the recipeint requited. You deal with a tangled situation with clarity, vigour and strength here. Great resilience! :)) Thank you, xx

Nicky, this is exceptional writing! You kept the storyline so close knit,which made it very interesting with no superfulous lines. The images are also well defined! it reminds me of a documentary film I saw on our local PBS tv station! Excellent poem! Eileen

Pink dolphins, something that captures the imagination and allows it to soar to new heights, wonderful photograph too.... Be always safe, Karen

Curupira, (Poetry) - 11/3/2008 7:27:09 AM
strange and impish... I love that being exposed to other lores and cultures brings to light perspectives and delights that are often so alien to our own fantasy worlds. Not sure why, but this makes me think that we guage "safe" and "normal" by our own cute peccadillos. Pink dolphins sound entirely feasible to me! :)) xx

Curupira, (Poetry) - 11/3/2008 6:38:57 AM

Carbon dating (Poetry) - 11/2/2008 10:42:29 PM
Imagery is brilliant and so is the flow. Do you require the last stanza at all? IMHO "in a silence that imprisons the truth" is where the poem could have ended.

Carbon dating (Poetry) - 11/2/2008 9:03:11 PM

Carbon dating (Poetry) - 11/2/2008 11:02:31 AM

This is marvelous imagery,so lush it delights the senses a pleasure to read,Nicky! ET

Enrolada (Poetry) - 10/27/2008 2:34:07 PM
This is such a strong write, Nicky. I love the way you focus down on that one hard image of the narrow backstreet gulleys. The damp clamminess is very suffocating. And I like the way you coolly philosophise round it, too. Like you say, very calculated, very determined. I can relate to this depressive state where it's like you're actually watching yourself with amazement and with a cold objectivity. The lurking sense of menace is tangible. xx

Enrolada (Poetry) - 10/26/2008 5:25:43 PM
"relying on inactive", "relinquishing all control to objects" so many keys within this piece.

The Dinner Party - Judy Chicago's Plates and The Woman of Spheres (Poetry) - 7/13/2008 3:52:56 PM
Wiki says of The Brooklyn Museum 'In 2002, the museum purchased the work The Dinner Party by feminist artist Judy Chicago, funded by a gift from The Elizabeth A. Sackler Foundation. Its permanent exhibition began in 2007, in the museum's Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.' i would love to walk round the Dinner Party - i'm really surprised and glad that it is somewhere permanent, staple diet on Womens Studies Courses back in the olden days and certainly caught my imagination.. i hope it is still there ---> going to investigate! thanks for your comments...

The Dinner Party - Judy Chicago's Plates and The Woman of Spheres (Poetry) - 7/11/2008 2:39:38 PM
Scanning poetry tonight after posting some--and The Dinner Party caught my eye. I have the art book pictures, but have never seen the real thing. I hope it still exists somewhere, as to me, as a writer who lives and breathes history, it was full of meaning and the boundless importance of such a creation in those times. (Not to mention these times--when everything gained is on the verge of being fundamentalized.) Thanks for the images, Nicky!

The Dinner Party - Judy Chicago's Plates and The Woman of Spheres (Poetry) - 7/11/2008 4:38:21 AM

The Dinner Party - Judy Chicago's Plates and The Woman of Spheres (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 4:36:54 PM
Dear Nicky, Ah, what a coincidence. We dedicated a chapter in Dominga Rio of Cuero to Judy Chicago's Dinner Party. It talks of the stylized vaginal imagery and my comment is that women should put women's art like this on display in our china cabinets and teach our daughters the importance of women's art and cleanliness through the vagina. Judy Chicago has found a permanent home for the dinner party and her other art! This is like a 48-foot triangular display with table runners, banners, goblets, and plates! Beautiful work! Controversial women's artistry will always have a place and will go down in herstory. I visit Judy Chicago's website often. She was an art student in the 1960s and has left us a wonderful and provocative legacy of feminism and women's genitalia so beautifully offered to us on china plates...I've missed you...hope you've been well and spending alot of time on the beach there...take care, Nicky. Love, SageXOXO

Sea blue crystal/sarong (Poetry) - 5/14/2008 1:45:53 PM
this is uniquely crafted, Nicky, and I love the uninterrupted flow and length of lines; the fascinating plays on words and rhythms. Like the multi-layered wrappings of a sarong and the vibrations of water in rock pools, it seems to me. Makes me think of standing, peering down through crystal waters, against the shadow of clouds above and the play of light, and then also down through the wafting hair of seaweed, too... and catching the quicksilver movement of creatures within. Wonderful descriptors and texturing. Beautiful ambience and mood. TY Kate xx
