Could you enlighten me as to why you chose that horrid finger picture. Is it a scene from the singing detective or something?

Very funny - should perform well. On the whole male body hair doesn't bother me, I must admit - though huge tufts of it coming from the ear, aren't that attractive. Much harder being a woman, I think. Don't know many men who can tolerate body hair on a woman.

Hey thanks for your comment on the orgasm poem - I'm really glad you liked it :)
Acrostic, eh? I didn't even know it was a recognised form. I was just messing about!

(bi-metallic strip) = thermostat. 2 pieces of metal with different properties, when heated expand at different rates causing the metal to bend, which then opens or closes the electrical contact. All houses with some form of electrically controlled heating will have one.

Great! Really impressive Pete!" a hairy wale hunting old spice" is an image I shall never forget! I must say you never look anything like that in any of your profile pics! It's great being fair - no one notices how hairy you might be! Except when the sun shines! x

Dave, thanks for feedback on recent poem, hope I can give it a read to you soon.

The imagery and eradication of loves past by fire made me tremble.Were I to follow suit... the plume of fire would be seen on Google Earth... and close several airports for weeks....
What a superb piece... just loved the pants off it!!Well doneLook forward to meeting up with you soon, give me a ring.

I also think this works very well. "roots and worms and skulls and crowns / and roman glass and buried urns of bones, / patterned crockery and unexploded bombs": there's a real music to this. Words have been chosen very carefully for their sound in juxtaposition to each other. I like the idea that near the bottom is Harold's eye. A reminder that England's history could have been so different!

I have to respectfully disagree with Graham. I feel the jumble beneath our feet does reflect very well the jumble beneath our conscious minds and love the idea of 'heart' at the bottom of it all. Really enjoyed.

Very enjoyable. So much for the diet. Would, no doubt, perform well in your inimitable style.

WOW! Re Hebden Bridge station! That is so amazing, as I copied it months and months ago! Next tome I go there I'll have to get someone to take a photo of me standing there with my rucksack on my back, looking up the track! Wow! xx

Hi Ann, Yes, It is Hebden Bridge Station! Not the normal sort of passenger you get waiting for the Leeds train! Win x
Mon 22nd Nov 2010 10:08
Thank you for your kind observations on my 're-mix'. I am happier with it and I think it stands up (so to speak) as a poem. It is a bit odd plagiarising ones self but oddly satisfying. I might try it again in a different form, I've already got the first line of a sonnet there! Or perhaps I should move on and find something else to write about? : )
Mon 22nd Nov 2010 09:45
Hi Win! I've just changed my profile pic and used an image I've had on my computer for ages. Now that I've been to Hebden Bridge station I can see that this painting does look exactly like it. Although I suppose lots of stations used to look like that. What do you think? xx
Mon 22nd Nov 2010 09:43
How did you guess! Do you think the painting is HB? I found the image ages ago and copied it onto my computer, but I never took a note of where it was or who the artist was. But now I've been there, it does look just like it. xx

I agree with Ann's sentiments, you go further into rather than violently look for a desperate escape as in Plath's "Burning the letters". Both I like. Very touching. well done.
and thanks for your comment..hee hee!

Are you happy with this now John? I hope so. I think it's really good. Some of the images are beautiful indeed. The last three lines make it quite haunting, there's almost a sense of horror as if something like incest has taken place. Just my interpretation here. xx

Lots to praise in this and should perform well. I particularly liked the ending in which the lost lover's attention to detail is only brought into focus by your own attention to detail. A nice touch that works well on the page, and would also finish a performance effectively

Ray & Isobel - I didn't post it with any gap in it & I just tried editing it & there is no gap !! I tried re-pasting it back into Word & back again, but the gap remains. Grrr ! Yes, you're right though - there IS a big gap between China & AK's arse - several thousand miles, I'd reckon :)
Ray, Ray ! Anna's arse MUST be clad in white knickers - anything else is just not cricket (or tennis).
Yes, Isobel, I'd love to tinker with Anna's arse, but, like you say - "a faithful one" [it IS only a daydream]. xx
Sun 21st Nov 2010 21:25
When I read this earlier there was no gap at all between Anna Kournikova's arse and the fine bone china. Have you been tinkering with it?
What a lovely ending - underneath all that filth, there's a true romantic - and a faithful one. x
Sun 21st Nov 2010 21:14
Extraordinary visions in a few lines, Banksy. A fascinating subject which can be interpreted in a myriad of ways. As for the two words, well, enigmatically.. "Et tu?"

Very nice, I like it. There's a big gap between China and Anna Kournikova's arse.Sorry, just summat I never thought I'd write. The white knickers wouldn't be essential.
