a very pretty poem this, somehow tanatalising and suggestive too. I love the line to pluck that subtle pinkly plate. Subtle and somehow sexy!

I think you are being a little prejudiced there Therm. I have known very many lovely Southerners. They are just not as immediately open to strangers. Once you break the ice, we are all the same.
Good luck with the auditions Beulah - I'll be crossing my fingers for you!

Wigan is around halfway up the M6, it gets a poor rep because the majority of the people who live there are hardworking, honest and friendly. Descended in the Main from gritty mine workers, millwrights, blacksmith’s and carpenters. In other words people familiar with integrity and community spirit, as oppose to the soft skinned pencil necked thieving pen pushers that seem to be rampant down South. ha ha I enjoyed that rant ;-))) The gas towers on the railway and ‘ The road to Wigan Pier’didn’t help though.TC X

Sorry, no can do. In order to be a poem, it needs to be a poem, something that you sadly do not seem to understand.

I have been reading and writing poems...of a sort, for much longer than you have been on this earth (I would guess)...I have just chosen to study the form 'academically' in the last year or so, and 'post' only those that I think may contain a whit of poetry...but I am happy for others, more ept and able to disagree.

I have read your entire oeuvre on here, many, many, many, times (a 'Round The Horne' reference...for any of those of the same vintage!) and, 'One Night Stanza' has a palpably poetic edge to it, but you do come across (I use these words ill-advisedly) as a bit of a one trick pony...and, I'm afraid, for me, in this instance, without undue prejudice, in my humble opinion, with no evidence to the contrary...you fucked up big time!

It's not a poem....and scweaming and scweaming until you are sick...will not make it so.Unless, of course...someone, please god, someone....can point me to the poetry.I am your obedient, and less self-published servant.

,Dear John,

Please be aware that this is a POEM please except that as read and written.

I understand from previous posts and comments that you have just completed your 2nd poem, and are coming hard and fast on the rails to catch up to your third not withstanding that you have undertaken an OU course on Poetry no less where they advise you to omit adjectives and avoid purple patches. Sounds good to me,

Good luck with your third.

Once again many thanks for your comments.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my poem and comment, I have always struggled to look poverty full square in the eye, I have worked in some deprived places too, Nigeria probably being the worst I will never get used to it. I am not keen on London either it is an unfriendly place from my experience, you should come to Wigan there is only the odd busker or two in the town centre ;-)) TC

Pearls of semen ooze from shell pink portals.

Dribbling, piddling out and under you down, down, down, onto the bed sheet.
:Unquote

I can't believe this debate (mass-debate?) is still going on. IT'S NOT A POEM!

Please, someone, just for me...point to the poetry...please. Just show me what I'm missing...please...honest, I cannot see or hear a single poetic aspect to the entire edifice. Stuff the content (which, as I have already said, is an admirable attempt to tackle a difficult subject) just explain to me how, in any way shape or form this is a poem. It's a dribbling, piddling thing.

Good afternoon,
Thank you so much for reading my poem and your generous comments. .

The question of honesty is a doubt throughout the poem, is the girl being honest with herself, her emotions are saying one thing her fear another and foremost her lust and sexual arousal quite another. The honesty of the writer is paramount and of course I am being honest many girls are placed or place them selves in this situation, between a rock and a hard place.

The writer in this instance was the young girl within the poem.

Once again many thanks for your honesty and comment..

My, my What to do, Stefan I do hope you remembered to wash your hands thoroughly after utilising my poem for your lavatorial ends. I would ask, if you are not still busy, that you read my other postings on WOL and any future postings insofar as I believe my ability as a poet is possibly more obvious to a relatively new poet/writer.

Your opinion, albeit harsh, is nonetheless valid and as a consequence I would never wish upon you or verbalise a ‘Good Bollocking’. My Idea and imagery of a good bollocking is an altogether different set of circumstances.

Hey Ho, press on with your poetry Stefan I’m sure you’ll get to where you deserve to be eventually…
After all your great, great, great namesake Oscar had his ups and downs, and stayed up, so we are led to believe, right to the end.
Many Thanks for at least taking the time to read and comment.

I rather liked this..it seemed honest. As for the paradigms of poetic form, I have views on that which would conflict with this writer , but as free form has been accepted on many occasions, I see no reason to draw up regulations now. The difference between this and the "fisting" poem of Ernesto, against which I railed, is that this poem seeks to relay the emotional dilemma of a submissive partner in a sexual act in which the power relationship is determined by society..not the callous expression of detachment by someone who has inflicted pain on a partner and then says " I told you so!" That's sadism, which I hate.
I think the poetess is honest and I trust I haven't been deceived.Steve Smith
