HB Mox. Half Baked. Half baked pencils are really crumbly and do horrid miracles.

Thanks for your comment Pete, at least I don't totally die on my arse on paper! Well done at the slam by the way.
Your poetry is much more cleverer than what mine is, my mother still says to me 'I wish you'd speak proper like what I do'.

So God used to be a pencil? Wow. Function, ergonomics... and traces could be erased. How were the shavings regarded? Relic status or slough? Was he soft or hard or perfectly HB?

well Pete,
the public office possition Im running for is a republican seat, but Im a libertarian and my plan is to infiltrate the system. as a chair woman I will be resposible for seeing that Ron paul get as many delagates as possible into the national convention, I will be resposible to see that my area conducts a fair election, that all are permited to vote as they please. I will see to it they are counted and not treated badly. Hum President, well Im to common for that, I dont have the $ to run for that office, I dont have a membership to the council on forign relations or the world bank, would never join them, they need to be abolished along with the UN.The majority that run for president over here are the banking elite, social class/upper class, billionars.I could never be that. thanks yeah Ill keep writting, you to xx

Thank you Clarissa and Darren. Darren yes I totally agree, I have put the 'a' in as you could even say 'apart' 'a part' so i like the duel aspect. Thanks so much for spotting this.

Your talent is obvious with every single word.
"I have become part of your pain" ?
"I have become a part of your pain" ?
I would be tempted to add an 'a' ...but then will that change the whole initial meaning? Ooh, I don't know.
Great Poem Pete.

Steve, I have no idea what you're referring to - making out that my poetry about a sacred stringed instrument has some sort of hidden sexual meaning - I'm very disappointed in you. And offended for that matter.

Yes, Pete. Details were given for you to contact me on so feel free to use them!!! It seems likely that I shall be returning from Rugby to play a set for John Togher, Jan 12th. So maybe if we speak at some point you might be able to do some images over a few songs. I'd feel the need to contribute ideas and stimuli. Anyway, take care for now. I will, when not so rushed, give some feedback on your pieces here.

Best wishes, John

'Familiarity seems a contemptuous song'

I like how you manage to suggest the original phrase whilst utterly avoiding it. Also, in the line that follows it. Very clever.

It's good to see that your work has a similar relentless rhythmic quality on the page/screen as it does hearing it. That and your obvious love of wordplay makes for enjoyable reading.

Good stuff, Pete.

This is very good, seems full of thorns.seems full of bitterness. everyday life feels this way to me. no person needed. I think I need a good friend, I feel like I may freak out. but you have your own problems. to be free as a bird, that would be nice. great poem full of feelings.

Hi Phil, the 'alien' analogy is strong and provocative and strange -- unsettling and sad, too. It gives a real insight into the shock of finding your body is not entirely your own, that an illness has claimed a right to your life. Shocking indeed and the writing itself is an act of bravery.

Thanks for your comments about 'Craig'.
He was fed Viaga in the Far East and smuggled into the UK inside a consignment of walking sticks.
His name is of course a pseudonym. Or should that be, a psssssssssseudonym?
His sister Sharon doesn't appear to drink either. Temperance snakes - whatever next.
I like what is inside your head.

What i especially like about this poem, and i like it v much, is that it is not 'laying any big message on us', that it exists as itself. That is one of the hardest things to learn, to let it speak for itself. We can slant and select to 'tidy up' a piece, but to contort it to what we want to say is most of our biggest blunders
All power to you!

Phil, I like this style of poem and I like the metaphor. I think by making the subject more vague it allows a wider audience to access and interpret this. The alien inside is a good title too. I like the new style it is a step in a direction I can relate to and this new poem excites me.

Hi, thanks for introducing me to the site.

i like you're poem, 'Taboos' is a cute one.

the bit

'Then she would go and make a pot of tea.
And the end of the world was averted.'

made me giggle, reminds me of how my Mother-in-law reacts to pressure or stress

'make a cup of tea!'
