My poetic license was lost in the wash..


Late evening capitalism Milk Tomato Sauce Coconut juice Toilet paper I find poetry in grocery lists I hang out in takeaways I listen for micro emotions In the voices of representatives Anything to fill This loneliness Anything that Works on the stain I've tried new And improved Now I'm working on That same old great taste We could become An image I don't think we're ugly Enough To really reach the limits We'll have to try again I think we're stuck I said we'll have to

There's a certain quality to your writing that continually draws me in--you're a distinct presence here on WoL, for sure.

Welcome to WOL, Mr. Gaulke. Don't forget the month of June will go off the prime page almost in hours. Save some work to begin the new month. Readers do check back, of course, but not as much as you might hope.

Generally speaking, the norm tends to be a poem per week, or even fewer, because there are so many contributors to read. Just speaking from observation, but you may well be the exception. It's a great site, full of talented writers. And they're a supportive bunch too.
