Loved 'A Private Function', great work. You should write more immediate stuff like that (at least i think so).

Hi Cyn - "crimplene & tweed" - you are so kind to me & my poems - I don't know what I've done to deserve it, since many of them are just daft throwaway ideas. I remember commenting on yours about "what women want" type of theme a while ago which was really good, but sometimes it doesn't seem fair that one or two poets just seem to "ring our bell" & yet others ignore them. Ah well different strokes & all that !
all the best. B

Hello r.b. From "one ward dweller"(wood dweller almost!) this is great, funny, sharply bizarre.That 2nd half is the poem, I think you'd be well advised to cut or compress the preamble. The 2nd verse in particular, with its 3 lines of rhyme is distracting.

Hi there, just listened to your audio. I like the fact that the acoustics don't override the words which does seem to occur with a lot of this particular style of performance poetry.

I love your take on Moses. Very funny. Great stuff :-)

Yes - I would tend to agree with Ann's interpretation. This a poem about significant role change. A woman's need for a man who is distanced. The pressures that brings. Where he was once in control, the driving force of a knife in fact to her lamb, now he is domesticated, tamed, turned to stone by the weight of her expectations. I was a bit puzzled by the Frank reference but I've come to the conlusion you are referring to Frankincense which would tie in with the candles and prayers.

A sad poem but a good one cos it is so refreshingly different.

i live on chapman st which i thought similar to the names of murderer harold shipman and the the name of mark chapman the fool who shot john lennon(GRHS)...now the name of a mutilated victorian prostitute...its all so grim i love it. yet it is really a very nice little street. The neighbour informed me however that one of us residents was held up at gunpoint for their shopping and another tried to cut off his own head! :) i believe non of it but not a bad welcome eh?
