hmmm... mr malpoet whilst i may love some of your poetry, your philosophical and political perspectives leave me somewhat cold... and possibly starving if i am not lucky enough to be one of the few that benefits from the free market economy to which you hold so dear! is it possible to read the art without taking into account the poets own viewpoints? i'm not sure... now that i have followed your links i am decidedly unhappy :-(
mises.org is scary and worryingly sane sounding in my humble opinion... do you seek the end of the world? or is it simply that you have no care for those who do not fit your own brand of market economy, for example, the other three quarters of the population of this Earth upon which we all briefly live...
when i look at your website the first thing that i notice is the 'click throughs' to gambling websites, is money more important to you than your art? it certainly seems to be the case...
but hey, what do i know, i am just a flip flop wearing liberal with too much time on my hands - go fill your boots and the rest be damned!

A fabulous poem, Morag. Some great lines in it, my favourites being:
Woman growing, woman stretching,
Through the shiny skin of girl

the woman growing through the girl is such a fantastic image

and

Through my blood new life is flowing,
Through my veins all futures pass.

the role of women in continuing the species is write small but understand large, in these two lines.

Though one line does not scan, for me:
So may taint me, saint, paint me,

I feel there is a syllable missing. But perhaps I am wrong?

Thank you for such a fabulous poem.

Julian

Thanks very much Clarissa.This is an account of an actual event. Travellers put their horses into a field next to a house I used to live in. They were there for some time and we enjoyed their presence. When the stallion was delivered one day everything changed. and it was pretty much as I describe in the poem.

Sorry I have noticed a typo. It should say 'crunching' in the last line of the penultimate stanza.

this is an amazing poem about the testing done on animals in the name of science and product safty for humans. It burns me to the core that they do this, I do the best that I can NOT to purchase products that are tested on animals. They do the most stupid things like spray mouth wash in their eyes, of course it hurtsand would harm a human, however if your stupid enough as a human to get it in your eyes then...well, must be retarded. ah great job!

Aperitifs-a-Plenty and the recrudescence of decency to intellectual joy to you! You are an harlequin with a wooden ruff which people mistake for a picnic table, spreading their molecular gastronomic foams like sterile cuckoo spit across it. Hey, but they're the kind of people who can find Nature in an upturned tub of generic curry powder, so what the hell! Lord-a-bless thee for thy beautifully conditioned, cask-matured words!

oh god here i go again... totally loved it... you have really upped your game in your delivery style pete.. and it shows. i think that you do subtle understatement really well, and because your poems are so full of emotion working with them in this way adds a whole new dimension to the poem. Loved the photography too, Andy's always off doing the 'urban decay photography' thing, it's amazing what you can find in a dodgy old building!

Pete, I'm fast running out of superlatives for your work and this piece, both its contents and your vocal delivery, are superb.
Two of my children were born at Billinge Hospital by the way. It didn't look much different than your picture!
Anyway, once again, an excellent piece of poetry. Now, if you don't mind I'm off to get older.

I went to KFC then back to me flat to watch Sky till me brain melted and I fell asleep! Haha! But strangley, whilst doing so I did stroke my chin (covering it in chip grease) and discuss the architecture of my living room 'mmm, what an interesting 1970's fire place...'

Hi Gem

Welcome to the sane and sensible world of Malpoetry. On return from Bordelleaux, Pam and I went to an absurdly expensive and pretentious restaurant where we had about 8 courses of tiny pieces of food and froth, then we went to York to visit our granddaughter at Uni where we stayed in a smarty pants hotel with yet another restaurant meal. Drove through glorious English countryside to the Lake District and another flash Hotel, Dinner in a swanky restaurant and then drove home. Never stroked my chin once and hardly ever commented on the architecture and paintings.

Retired Chinny Winny.

Revolutionary working class poet.

that's no rant Mike,as far as I'm concerned it's got everything a poem needs, metaphor, feeling, message, multi-layered, but accessible, all packed into a neat well-crafted bundle of lines. Cheers, keep up the good work.
