Hi John,
thanks for your comments.
Yes i do have my reflective moments. I quite enjoy the creativity it brings out.
Must be the beautiful full moon we just had. It had a definite affect on my emotions.

Hi Janet, you seem very reflective lately. I like the mood of this.

Titles are quite important I think but it is difficult to suggest for something written by someone else. For what it's worth I would stick with the current title.

Hi Cynthia - no particular hidden depths in this one - to be frank it's one I put aside for a few days intending to develop it further but no inspiration came so I left it 'as is'.

Best wishes

I had two titles for this and couldn't decide which one to use.
The other option is ''Addiction''.
Any ideas?

See you soon.

Cheers Jeff. I really appreciate your comments as this is the type of poem I shy away from sharing or reading at open mic nights.

Managed to get a slot on freed up so I'd better get writing!

Had to get into it by reciting with my eyes ... very good. Similar to Canadian poems written in a French-Canadian patois which I studied years ago.
What was 'wet'? Sweat? or Wet dreams?

Hiya Cat, great to see you last night. Really like this and yes I got lost in the depressive loneliness of it all, love it - really good stuff!!

Really like - Crocodile tears for an audience of one doesn’t draw a loud applause - brilliant!

Through some turbulent times I've analysed myself in the mirror, not a pretty sight by the way - sure you had a better view! - but if I'm reading it right theres no point dwelling on it (easier said than done at times I know).

And you're not, the new Cat P is upon us, so to speak! I certainly don't think you've had your final encore - Jeff X

Mr. Wood, I'm sorry it has taken me so long to 'get into' your poems. I think they are excellent, so much so that I have no favourite/s. I may not comment much but I will read them all. I believe that you have a high standard for your work.

Hi Nefertiti :) Thanks for your comments upon 'School Rules' - I probably was seen as a little devilish in Grammar school since I questioned pretty much everything, especially in R.E. lessons, ;)

Had to log in to say how much I liked this, Sophie. The thrice repeated 'fly', 'mispelt' consistence and so much else in this poem work really well to give a strong feeling of the need to let our imaginations take us where they will. Great

like it Sophie, laughed out loud at this verse

Catch the last train to Unconscious
Pop the last gray matter bubble
Take my hand and let it launch us
Into Edwin Hubble’s stubble.

Nice one :-)

Dear Gus

Just to say thanks for your well-considered comments on my poem. I'm delighted that it appealed to you. My memories of 'I Got You Babe' are slightly hazy. I was only three months old when it came out. I must remind myself of its finer details.

With best regards from New Malden
