I went to Canal Street earlier this year with my daughter who wished to taste the atmosphere. We had a coffee and a man began a conversation with us and went on to show us the most disgusting text ever. He assumed my daughter and I were a couple. I think Julian has an extensive and powerful word power that he uses in a humourous and sometimes satirical way that gives his work great strengh. He is a good technican in in craft and I congratulate him. I look forward to reading hearing more of his work but actually find hearing work performed by the writer to be more enjoyable.

'Come back today,
Do you hear - Darlington!
Come back today
That mother may cry no more!' - Extremely poignant lines, Clarius and a very moving poem.
I also like to extend my word power - had to check the dictionary for 'harmattan'!

Yes I am an 11ft Iguana -- you and David Icke have spotted the roller-ball eyes within (no use for bifocul lens bras,then, as Marty Feldman would have said) and, basically, what I decide today happens tomorrow (okay, there's a time lapse between decision and implementation -- we haven't been able to ditch beauracracy yet. I am keeping watch -- people are illuminated silhouettes shifting beneath my nails which is the Illuminati equivalent of CCTV but without the carbon footprint. Besides, I am not a carbon-based life form and so can't hold a tune.

Correction of above comment: I like how the persona in the poem says, "You were full of life and warmth/Coarse and rugged like the igneous rock". I always love to see rock/stone imagery in poetry and I have often talked about granite and igneous souls, preferring a rock/stone resolve to steel resolve (the latter is processed resolve). Good poem; write more like this!

You probably posted the last poems in Discussions somewhere, if you can remember the name it should be fairly easy to find in there probably under poetry review

Well thankyou Julian and Malcome. Really thought i'd get no response. I tend to be very critical of what i write, so i wasn't sure. Doing this kind of thing is new to me and as for a CV, what on Earth do i put in that?
Yep, i only like to read the humerous type of poetry as it has a tickle to it. Mine are all rhyming but not all are humerous. Some serious.

Hi Belinda, my names Allan and I perform as Gordon Zola I don't know if you remember me from the greenroom, but I remember you,and enjoyed your performance. Like you, meditation was a big inspiration and got me started. If I can help in any way don't hesitate to get in touch. You'll find my email on my profile. Luv and laughter. Allan

Hello Gemma! It was fantastic meeting you and hearing you read your powerfully evocative poems. Litbury was amazing, you created a wonderful, unique and friendly word-based family event. My dad thoroughly enjoyed himself, despite hating poetry. As soon as he got home he phoned his friends and said, 'You'll never guess where I've been all afternoon....' Thank you.

Sorry have to put it here because it wont let me go through to your email, your profile says you are NOT looking to get into performance poetry - should this maybe say NOW? It just seems a strange thing to put on a performance poets website.

I like rhyming poetry too. Yours flows very well without any feeling of the rhymes or rhythm being forced. Rhyme is especially well suited to humour and I really enjoyed this. You will undoubtedly find that some poets will look down a little on humorous, rhyming verse. My advice, for what it is worth, is to take no notice if you get that kind of reaction. Some of the very best poetry tickles our funny bone and the rhymes make it stick in the mind.

I like insects. I am one. Our websites can commune with each other in an interfiasco. I am sure that Hermione and Ermintrude will go along. They are determined cybernauts. I may not be able to. I have been confined in a play pen before and escape can be troublesome.
Mon 16th Jul 2007 10:59
The website will celebrate fiascos, insects, colloids, cybernetics, lump hammers, toffee, biscuits, quantum cookery using dark matter, and stuff. Ermintrude and Hermione will be most welcome -- I hope they will come to regard it as a second home. I should be in receipt of said website this week and will probably launch a badly designed, ersatz prototype very shortly. Meanwhile, we are to have our own play area on WOL!
Wed 11th Jul 2007 16:28
Quite right. I wouldn't let you on my space. You should go and create YourSpace. Whales are no good, they are bald and they always blow their nose when you talk to them. I am prepared to discuss with them about Shambo becoming thier first minister provided they come and meet me in the Moby Dick pub because that is only 400 yards from my house. They must dress properly in thread worm suits and they will have to cover that disgusting baldness with proper pink wigs. Oh and they are not allowed to smoke unless they go outside.
Wed 11th Jul 2007 14:48
I thought whales were ocean-adapted bulls! That's why they attack underwater bunting and are allergic to strawberries. I've seen whales with rings through their noses tethered outside a farmer's postcard sea front parade kiosk. Meanwhile, I am glad to report that Ricardo Reis did make a curry and I am sad to report that the said Ricardo Reis forgot to put the rice pudding in the oven on time. However, it is my turn to make the dinner tonight so there will be rice pudding in the oven at the correct regulo and in time to cook thoroughly to be eaten today and not tomrrow. And I am glad to report that Ricardo Reis's son who is also my son has taken to calling himself Vienna Famous. You can see him on Myspace. I was thrown off Myspace for claiming that my hobby was figure skating on cryogenically preserved bodies to check their frost levels.
Wed 11th Jul 2007 10:35
Roddri couldn't object, he would be humanely despatched. Hermione and Ermintrude can't put up with a lot of bull. When I was human I was too tired to campaign and now I have transed nobody can see me. Anyway, Shambo would be best First Minister for Wales. Their assembly is already shambolic so it is his right and bulls are friendlier than whales.
Tue 10th Jul 2007 15:52
Shambo -- can't Hermione Pringle or Ermintrude Prune do something to save him? I mean, Ermintrude's, well, gone over and is probably a reformed spirit by now. Surely she can exert some kind of astral protection for the lovely bull? And you're right, swap Roddri over -- Roddri could wear a panto-bull suit and speak in his own defense. Or leg it. Or do kick boxing. Or claim diplomatic immunity.
Tue 10th Jul 2007 09:24
Oh OK Paul. I ought to have put Shambo in there.

Or William Ernest Henley's Madame Life's a Piece in Bloom from which The Ruffian on the Stair snooked its title -- also declares that the polka dot is dangerous. And I quote, 'to dare to dream in dapplement, the lounging polka dot and speck, and every splashing devilment, a man perchance becomes a wreck.' Warning enough.

Ruffian On The Stares, as Jo Orton-ow. You are getting dangerously close to polka dots -- step away now!
