Samples

Beholden to Behind A thumb - intently placed on chin caressing every freckle into a letter that spells out a story. Blushing lips that remand and remade the ending Forefinger - smoothing the jaw straight as lines read and re-read. He turns her over like a page his favourite fable, ever inch a mythology of unreason. Genteel palm - perfectly placed on ripened white, depressing spine into maidenly goading of docility. Two hearts, to start - a beautiful violation.

'Writing disobedient verse for voyeurs'? There's no such thing anymore, Katy. Who, exactly, do you think you are disobeying? Strange word for a free-thinker.

Genuinely interested, if you care to comment.

Actually, I thrive on discourse, providing it stays free of the premise that there is only one right answer to anything, and hence personal antagonism or a sense of personal superiority. And that includes me too.

Sometimes, in watching 'The Big Questions' on Sunday morning, after Andrew Marr, I just get up and walk out of the room. You can clearly tell when the subject has reached an impasse, and nothing is going to be learned by anyone through further discussion. Body language, often more than words, is so telling of an intransigent attitude.

This sounds like a Monday morning homily. Sorry about that. I'm reading up a bit again on St. Anthony ... fascinating man and monastic precedent.

Cheers, Cynthia

Katy, I also feel that if I enjoy my own poetry, then chances are someone else will too. And I do like my own work, as if it is not even mine, just another writer entirely. Otherwise, I either adjust a poem to my own satisfaction, or jettison it. Harshly.

It's hard to know whether this is narcissistic or fairly common among poets. What think you?

Christmas drinking eating too
saying some things you might regret
then spending the rest of the year making up!

I did hope you did too!

Hi, Katy, - just curious - why are you shy about anal intercourse?

I'm not really sure what 'disobedient barriers' you think you are are breaching. Or whom you think you would offend. But I may be the one outside the accepted pale, and not realizing it yet.

I never once considered my 'Moon Month' to be anything but honest, certainly not offensive to anyone. I may still be very naive.

Hi Katy

I hadn't seen Collier's Lilith. Impressive. And the original is just up the road in Southport - may take a look.

Coincidentally I've been re-reading George Macdonald's enigmatic 'Lilith'. The Victorians seem to have been fascinated by her. Have you run across it?

As to 'The Parting',go ahead. It really is one of my favourites. I often reread it myself, and I WROTE IT! I think the anguish resonates. I'm presuming I'd still be free to publish it myself, in a book?

Hi Katy - it would be brilliant if you could go into the 52 Hertz comp - I'm getting all excited about it now cos it seems to be finally heating up!

All you have to do is blog a poem and tag it with 52 Hertz. You are best choosing the poem that best fits the theme - alienation, loneliness, last of one's kind, singleness... anything that ties into that, even if it's tenuous.

I'm looking forward to reading it - closing date is 30th June. x

Thanks for your comment on 'noticed' Katy - just been reading your 'back catalogue' - how have I not noticed your wonderful poems before? They are quite simply STUNNING! I love reading the female perspective on love, lust and romance - some of your poems are genuinly spine tingling. Keep on keeping on Katy :-)
