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.

First off I like the poem a great deal, paints really good pictures, but all the way throgh the poem I was waiting for the softeniing of the description, the bit that allows the loving of a dragon...............perhaps it's just me being a nosey bugger....but nice write anyway

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 was very sad to hear my friend Dike had died. I knew Dike before he knew poetry and watched from afar as he created and perfected his art. Love Light and peace be with him.

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.

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.
Sun 8th Jul 2007 13:01
Ruffian On The Stares, as Jo Orton-ow. You are getting dangerously close to polka dots -- step away now!
Sun 8th Jul 2007 10:35
Don't look at me with your ruffian glasses! That could be a hotspot.

Dogspots on cats! Dogspot is a totally appropriate and congruent mascot. Dogspot willl be officially ratified first thing in the morning when I can find my glasses. My special ratification rafia framed glasses.

Hi, Scion. What a beautiful, delicate poem -- 'in the shadow of his heart' -- the regeneration of spirit and the fragility of life. Wonderful! And you're a trained CSI? That must be gruelling/fascinating work. All power to your poetry!

So your girliefesto is on your sitefesto: transhumanism is a very interesting edict. You have much bigger philosophies than I have in my manifesto, which is absolutely trite by comparison. I only have hand-thrown HQs and replica meals.So, what's your mascot to be?
Fri 6th Jul 2007 12:25
I have read yours and I fully understand it, but I am worried about getting a mascot for mine. I am terrified of being punished for naffmascot. Ha, but of course I will be exempt having a girliefesto. Anyway, it is an enormous work of great erudition and will take an enormously long time.
Fri 6th Jul 2007 10:32
My manifesto's done. It really doesn't make any sense, which is a relief. How's your girliefesto/femanifesto coming along?
Thu 5th Jul 2007 18:48
A manifesto! I must have a girliefesto. I will start work on it immediately.

Hello Osi Ris Emperoar of Vitals, kith of Hermione Pringle and Ermintrude Prune -- blimey, a Hit Man. I hope he's pathologically off-topic. I removed the old work from my page this afternoon because I'm posting some new guff this evening: Valhallal Heights, A Manifesto should be up soonish. Oh yes, the silliness continues. Again, your poems on world events are a treat. And as for bras, well, all I can say is cuppa soup -- they should make them with famous grocery label prints. Long Live The Lord Of Image Nations!
Thu 5th Jul 2007 12:40
Nothing like a good mutual appreciation society. Agnew Bis and George Purpose have entered my world to join Hermione Pringle, Ermintrude Prune and others who have lived with me for many years. You create some beautiful imagery Moxy and I enjoy it enormously. Ever since the lovely Is Is found the final, vital part and completed my reassembly I have presided over the underworld peopled by heavy hearted feathery souls and the fig moments of the image nations. It is a beautiful place to be and I am its emporer (it is the very best of emporiums). Provided that Casimir was dead at the time, I expect to bump into him here soon. He's great.
Thu 5th Jul 2007 11:31
Thank you for your lovely -- overwhelming -- comments, they really are appreciated. I am a huge fan of your work so am massively boosted and bolstered and blushed. Great thing the imagination, isn't it? I should say so! Joy To Your World Mr Carnival!

Julian - yes, it is I. Thank you so much for your comments, every word is appreciated. I'm relatively new to poetry and only since my time spent at College have I become more aware of its significance. The performance aspect is not something that I ever thought about until I discovered your site. I go to Manchester University in September and will relish the time spent picking the bones out of this wonderful language of ours. Write out Loud is a format that you should be truly proud of.Thanks again

As they say in Wigan, "Or reet". I thought it may be more appropriate to send you a less public reply than one posted on a discussion forum. My current profile is 'Darren Thomas', but when I joined WoL it was Thomas Dee. The former is my true tag and I decided not to stand in a world of smoke and mirrors enveloped in a persona that is not tangible. We have spoke Pete, at The Howcroft, albeit briefly I remember complimenting you on your work. It was only my second visit to a poetry group performance. I did the version of a taped police Interview. 'Fuck Chance, fuck opportunity etc..' That doesn't sound too poetic, but in context I believe that it did. Incidentally, I don't have a son and have only become seriously involved in poetry during the last twelve months or so, although I have been writing for 15 years. I have read most of the profiles and examples of work on the site and both 'Moxy's' contribution and yours I truly enjoy. Keep on...
