Hi Steve - thanks for paying me a call. Don't think I can make it tonight. Don't like travelling on my own into Liverpool LOL - have also had a bit of a stressful week for one reason and another. Will definitely try next month - it's been too long! xx
ps You should send your audio poem to Paul. I remember hearing it at Leigh and they were all good. It would be good hear it again on Jukebox

Glad you liked my Horoscope. Like you I've come back to writing seriously. Not Slams but open mics in Guildford and reading. I look forward to seeing more of your poems.

Hi Isobel. I presume you got to hear the audio remixing of your poem at the exhibition in Wigan. I did a similar thing with John at Leigh Turnpike, but I couldn't get to the exhibition (it was only on for one night). John did send me an audo loop, however, and that sounded good. I will try to listen to "Cramp9ng My Style" on the features section. I have hardly delved into the features so far, but then again, we do live in a world of too much information.
NOW THEN! It's LIVERpoetry! tonight (WED 12 MAY) at the Pilgim pub, Pilgrim Street, central Liverpool L1 9HB. Open-mic. You came to the launch event (at a different venue) and it would be good to see you again soon.
I followed your comments on the state of this site with interest. The people who run it appear to be most reluctant to give LIVERpoetry any publicity in the news section. Hey ho, the petty politics of the poetry scene!

Hi, Lynn! Lots of thanks for your comment on "Ballad about the soldier" Thanks for understanding. You know, when I wrote it I was calm. But now, every time when I reread it, a shiver pierces through my body.
Your poems are really brave with intelligent thoughts. And I like the way you write. Very nice!
With warmest wishes, Larisa

Like Isobel I find this intriguing Cynthia..... I think you sometimes write poems like this to keep us on our mettle and keep the old grey matter exercised! Im going for the fantasy theory verses the cold light of day... either way I liked the format!

Hi Nash, I enjoyed reading this... it captures the teenage angst situation so well! It was the same for us girls lusting after the captain of the school football team always on the sidelines and never given a second glance!!

Another good one, Larisa. I really like this one.
Wed 12th May 2010 10:40
Larisa, I am brushing the tears off my keyboard as I type. Your poem is very sad but it is also beautiful. A wonderful piece of work.

Hey up Ann! have just read discussions on possibility of reducing poems,and read your agreeable comments-good God! was,nt it Hitler who used to burn books he did,nt like? I thought poetry itself was about freedom of writing? and someone doesnt like 'friend' groups??? that comment speaks volumes does it not? and the very thought of scrolling down-phew! how tiring!dictatorial elitism rears its old head once more.If postings are lessened,please feel free to email your poems to me-I would take great pleasure in reading-everyone.Personally I shall always try my upmost to support this terrific site,and continue being open hearted-to everyone on here-with absolute respect-cheers Ann-Stefan-xxpsst! say nowt-yer might get taken out at dawn and WASTED!

Hi Chris, I'm going to be honest with you. After many years on the poetry scene in Bristol I've become quite jaded with a certain style of performance poetry, BUT I thought this was excellent. Truly excellent. Most people ramble on too long or forget their point or, to be frank, chat utter shit. I thought this was succinct (enough), poignant and delivered brilliantly. I also like the sentiment. Following Diana's death I wrote a piece about the death of my grandad the same week which had a similar point but yours is much better. Nash
Tue 11th May 2010 14:28
this is so beautifully written. i love the simplicity in your imagery close to true beauty.
i have often asked about the ant question.
i wrote a haiku about it which asked if our earth is a giant that we cannot comprehend as a living being because of its sheer scale...what are we to the miniscule life in the moss on the barks of trees...and how vast is the space between us...and what bodies orbit us...like the stars?
its so nice to meet someone who thinks the same. ive had many a smart insult directed at me for thinking about giants and ants from people at church usually...not that i should expect much else from them...only this guy was from africa and a true spirit.. i was so dissapointed when he laughed along with all the others there who couldnt understand me.
ah kealan its lonely at the top eh?

I'm presuming it is 'dis-ease of staggering beauty', a very compelling title, and an extremely interesting premise. Since the very word 'gender' is under attack by 'new thinkers', the whole idea is extremely topical. I'll think about it, to see if I have anything even approaching your concept. Perhaps I'll send one called Morning on the Mall. God forbid I should be a 'tweedy well-meaning teacher!' Your approach sounds a bit like the "James Dean'/Marlon Brando ilk of the what? 60's?

Nicky, I nearly croaked when I saw your message. How could you have known I've been thinking of you so much! I fully intended to make contact today - meant to last week but got caught up with children. I'm so glad all is well. The final stages of pregnancy are very trying (sort of coupled with 'O Lord! It's going to start all over again. When will I ever be ME!'). I am only empathising through my daughter's triple births. I had 'two for one', and chose not to risk another egg-set of possibly three; the chance factor was very high. Write as you can, for it's marvellous therapy for damn near everything. Carry a pad and pencil everywhere, especially in the bath (presuming you might actually get the odd one.) I'm being silly now.
Lots of love,
