poetry critical

online poetry workshop


there is no tempering
nor appeasing
pleasing is a constant gravy
train to a dog
on checkered plates
scarves strangle and
scars build
there you now! you
face this and face you
there is nothing in the world
worth less

Hi Hank

If you have been trying to contact me via e-mail i am pretty hopeless at all that stuff and the only bits i know is how to guide myself here through force of repetition. I am hoping to rectify this state of affairs this week now my computer whizz son has finally agreed to give me a few tips and is also setting up a site for me to display my art work. So I will keep you posted via commenting on your work.

Fond regards

from Larry old man Lark
