A Bottle of Wine (Short Story) - 9/25/2013 7:04:24 AM|
As I read this, it gave me a flashback to my academic days with all the intrigue that went on between single faculty. However, I'm not a connoisseur of fine wine, preferring the cheap variety from California.
Very interesting and enjoyable. It certainly does seem to be part of a larger work… A novel?
A Fiasco In Paradise (Short Story) - 8/23/2013 6:44:36 AM
Quite interesting. He-man gets the girl. I can identify with the sunburn. It was only in Hawaii once and that was for about an hour at the Honolulu airport to go through customs. Very scenic.
Brought back some memories. One was a South San Francisco used car salesman who had such a foul mouth that even though the immaculate white 65 Buick Riviera that I tried out didn't even have a squeak, I didn't consider buying it from such an asshole.
A friend of mine, the Capt. Nemo of San Francisco regattas, wanted me to partner with him buying a wooden 32 foot folkboat. I was leaving town and couldn't maintain or sail the boat anyway, so I passed on the deal. My friend bought it anyway and we went sailing just before I left. I got the tiller as we sailed around Alcatraz and Treasure Island. The fog made the ribs of the hull very slippery and I found myself bouncing along them, flat on my back on the wet bottom with no one at the tiller. I collected myself and got back to the tiller before the captain came to my rescue.
You alternately spelled Erik, Erick. That's an easy one to correct.

very interesting story
Possessed (Poetry) - 12/4/2013 7:43:00 AM
Try using "paste special" or "paste to match style" from your word processor program. The AD editor has trouble with some of the formatting programs like MS Word throw at it. Straight text or rich text format (.txt or .rtf) are the best formats to paste. You can then reformat the text using the editor and not your word processor.
You have taken a rather surreal look at vampires. Finding ice to be an aroma is rather interesting… Actually, quite strange like the rest of the poem.
The Panera Perspective (Poetry) - 6/17/2013 6:31:14 AM
This was spectacular and reeks of personal experience. Trees with the flight path and vaginas with coffee brewing in the background. Hats off to the freelance writer!
Saga of the Pillow Man (Poetry) - 5/13/2013 7:28:55 AM
A uniquely interesting view of pillow making in the United States with imported pillow covers from China. You seem to have first-hand knowledge of the goings-on.
Harvest of Stones (Poetry) - 3/30/2013 9:08:45 AM
Reads like a very dramatic nightmare. You have a classy style that I really like.

Fascinating the charm of a cat and the "mee-ow."
Loving this write.

very nice indeed
Pay Cut (Poetry) - 1/15/2013 1:39:02 PM
A nice poem outlining the situation. Fortunately, the cliff is mostly hype, created by politicians and the media. Most of us can stand a little change in our income unless we are overspending to the max. There are certainly many parts of the budget that can be reduced because they are special concessions for special groups––mostly rich, who paid to have those concessions in the law.
Leaving war behind and reducing our military to defense will go a long way in reducing the deficit.
Pay Cut (Poetry) - 1/8/2013 3:34:25 PM
Very erudite, as we witness the decline. Though if we played a different game to the one they want, mayhap things would climb?
Pay Cut (Poetry) - 1/7/2013 7:39:33 PM
And so it goes; how right my long gone father was about men's "systems", particularly the financial one/s. Your verses reminded me to thank my dad, long gone these many years. Love and peace,
The Imeldific Cat (Poetry) - 10/24/2012 2:58:03 PM
good poem ... interesting topic ... should've incorporated her excess of shoes ... still works well ..
The Imeldific Cat (Poetry) - 10/16/2012 8:25:17 AM
A very creative look into the life of a cat lover. It looks like a Marcosain syndrome to me. ;-)
The Imeldific Cat (Poetry) - 10/15/2012 8:21:48 PM
Haha, I loved this, Peter! What a princess! Even though I have no knowledge of her color, fur-length or pad colors, she reigns supreme! As cats should, in my opinion.

"of the mute mailman
who knows everything,
who expressed himself
with an act of violence"
most mailmen i know can shut up ... many know little what's beyond their zip code of being, just like many poets i know ... statistically, mailmen are the least aggressive in the workplace, so going postal is a misnomer ... anyway, like your poem, at least it hasn't lost its zip ...

Well done, Peter !

For your first poem posted, this is a tour de force! You've hit on a subject I love so dear–junk mail. The imagery is fantastic.
However, I must warn you, that one of our premier members who has a following as great as AD itself, is one of those. And you certainly won't want him to go postal. ;-)
