Nice one Steve. Excellent portrayal of a tempestuous life. And an evolution from coca cola to red wine by the looks of things.

Is there a New Brighton Bards on this Monday? I plan to come over from York if there is, so can I book a slot?

Thanks for the comment Steve, yep, pain and pleasure, very Catholic! :) x

Cheers for the comment on my last one Steve.
I've great memories of Southport baths...including the lido.
So sad that the council saw the place in only economic terms of the day :(
Fri 17th Dec 2010 15:59
Thx for the generous and detailed feedback on the OK Society poem Steve.
I did perform it at The Bards and it went down in the tone/manner that felt apt.
It'll be good to be back at the Bards in the New Year!

Wed 8th Dec 2010 18:51
Glad you liked the moderate man rant.
Hope to se ya soon...that meal remember.

Oh we must have a drink or several. getting quite excited now but I still wish I could write two new poems before Saturday. See you soon x

Are you gonna put the lennony-thingy on your profile Mr.Regan, sir? I'm con-tem-plating it!
Mon 1st Nov 2010 15:41
Ha - the money is mine - I'm saving up for a facelift... for the kitchen!
Can't make Liver this month. I'm looking for somewhere quiet and out of the way to practise my pieces - somewhere with no scousers in sight!
I can't speak for Dave - the only thing we share is a car - when I venture into Mordor...
Am looking forward to Saturday - I've a feeling your poems may be even less flattering than mine!
Will definitely try to make Liver next month - I love the atosphere at all the venues you run. x
Thu 9th Sep 2010 07:40
Dress run/ read through. 6.30 til 8pm tonight Museum of Wigan Life, Library St. used to be the History Shop/ opposite where they've knocked the baths down. See you later! Louise :) ps. off to open mic night after. Will definately come across to your end v v soon

Steve, thanks for the honour of being even considered as competitive material for the LiverPoetry event. I have been abroad and not 'WOL connected' for some time. I'll be participating again soon, though it will take me days to catch up on activities. Respects always.
Mon 7th Jun 2010 16:58
Hi, Steve! Thank you very much for your kind invitation to the Grand Liverpool Poetry Competition. It could be great if I could take part in it. But... Do you know I am from Odessa in Ukraine? lol
Mon 7th Jun 2010 15:10
Hi Steve - thanks for the nod - yes, I had planned to come along anyway! Will there be 2 rounds like in other slams? Need to decide on what to practise...my Alfie poem is way over 4 minutes!
Thu 20th May 2010 14:05
hi steve...just got your message about mc ing at liverpoetry. yes id be happy to do that if the offer is still there...x
Wed 12th May 2010 13:01
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
Wed 5th May 2010 07:19
Arsony, arsony, it has to be arsony. Infamy, infamy, someone's got it in for you.
Can it possibly be true that you are cancelling the Bards? Couldn't it possibly take place on the ashes? Was amazed to read about it on the home page - let's hope the character isn't spoilt when they rennovate it.
Hope to see you soon anyway. Isobel x

Thanks for commenting on 'Cash Converters.' Much appreciated.
ps. See you at the Tudor Thursday if you're there.

Steve, just called in to say I totally agree with the feeling of Imagine Revisited. I'm a great Lennon fan but have always hated that song, and regarded it as a trite dirge. I suspect Yoko wrote the words. Greg

Thanks man for your comment, especially as it's not normally your thing, I had to edit down somewhat from the origional as it was really alluding to something called ' A course in Miracles' very different audience.Cheers ;-)TC

Hi Steve - was wondering if you had a copy of Wirral Winter Words I could buy tonight. I would like you to write in the front of it also. I like having a collection of poetry from poets I know. x
Tue 19th Jan 2010 10:01
just want to say thanks for your comment on my poem, numb dumb belle. It's much appreciated.
Sun 17th Jan 2010 12:55
I'm missing you a lot Steve, so glad you are still out there, thanks for all your events, I hope to be feeling better soon and get out there and see you and the crew. Miss it so much, your warmth, passion and enthusuasim leads to the most nurtered of poetry nights, long live the bards and the Regan scene

I will check the library on Monday for the novel you recommend.
One winter while visiting my sister in Canada I got completely snowed in for three days. She had a 'heritage' Bible from the late 1800's, a tome so big I had to spread it on a table to read. But I amused myself by reading completely through Paul's contributions to the canon. It was one of the happiest three days of my life; I was mesmerised once more, and privileged to stay with my reading for hours, immersion in 'his' words and philosophy. I never use the word 'doctrine' anymore. The fine aspects of Paul far outweigh the nonsense, although he has much to answer for in strait-jacketing Christian concepts about men and women. Well, hardly more than St. Augustine who really did a number with 'original sin'.

Thank you Steve for reading my poem 'Bound together'
and for your lovely words...
Thu 14th Jan 2010 12:23
Steve, my sincere apologies. I can't get through to you via the other channel. Don't know why. I have chosen to share through this medium. I hope I haven't overstepped.
I am on the outside
Beguiled by questions …
Scholarship … intellectualism …
Erecting barriers against the sleeping spirit.
But I say:
What a strange thought.
I live to learn,
And learn to live
In the constancy of Spirit:
‘Is … was … and shall be …’
There is no sleeping!
And I wonder why they peer at me
With murky eyes
As ‘through a glass darkly’.
But who is boastful?
It is hard to eschew
A sense of superiority …
Easily the greatest Lie
Of all Lies.

Steve, I am a crow's wing circle from Wigan, just around the corner in Sale, Cheshire.
And I too think that Biblical phrase is glorious. It was probably very influential. I have a poem based on it that I might share. Your work is very inspiring you know - or do you?
Sun 27th Dec 2009 13:07
Merry Christmas to you Steve. Was thinking about venturing out to the Moreton Arms tomorrow with a couple of sisters. Just wanted to check it was still on, as it is quite a treck...
Tue 22nd Dec 2009 17:01
Steve, thank you for your time and thoughts on my behalf. You have actually been much on my mind lately. May you have a rewarding Christmas respite to re-energise your innate glory.
Thu 17th Dec 2009 23:54
Not raunchy enough for me John - just a very boring flow of consciousness - perhaps we should get Augusta in on the act...or maybe one of these days I'll actually get round to writing some poetry....
Thu 17th Dec 2009 23:27
Got your email
But it went to my spam account -

To your google address.

Hi Steve. Thought you did a great job at the Tudor last week. Darren did a lovely review in blog format but for some reason removed it quite quickly so you probably never got to read it.
Hope to see you soon - not sure if I can make the Bards - no-one to go with and a bit under the weather at the moment.
Queen Isobel xx

Thanks for ur comment. Being a misfit? I moved totally alone to a new town where I knew no one here at all...15 years ago.It isn't easy.I had left a Religous commune that I had been part of for 20 years. Its good to relate to poems. I like Jessies poems on that subject,too.
Fri 13th Nov 2009 02:03
Hi Steve, thanks so much for comment on Empty, really appreciated! I did enjoy writing this, its completely different for me so glad you thought I used words well. It is Amy Mac's 'Run' - you're the only one to mention that so far! Cheers Steve, keep up the good work, Jeff I'm still bit behind but be catching up with your stuff soon!
Thu 12th Nov 2009 18:21
Thanks for your comments re Mrs Pragnells shop... Yes where would this world be if we had elected galvanised buckets into parliament... a better place I've no doubt.
Thu 12th Nov 2009 14:08
a prize you're not entitled to give as it wasn't sent to you. but thanks for re-affirming what i already thought about you.
Wed 11th Nov 2009 22:13
Hi Steve, glad you liked my poem 'Taken'...
Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.
What ever do you mean by this?
'It's a bit durrrty though!'
Hmmm... Does this reveal something about what's in your mind?
Because... I could have been describing the thrill of a dance (dance)... ; )
Wed 11th Nov 2009 19:35
Steve thank you for your kind comments on eleven/eleven. I agree with your view on reportage.
strangely I had these few words in my mind "we break our men" for over a week. It wasn't until I suddenly thought of the juxtaposition of poppies (as in Flanders and Afghanistan that the other words came.
Wed 28th Oct 2009 19:55
Would like to come again Steve. I find that journey quite scary on my own though and my sisters don't like Mondays... Perhaps Janet would join me. Will discuss it with her.
Wed 28th Oct 2009 16:30
Hey, if I can organise some transportation, will be there, a week on Monday? Already sweettalked my better half to taxi me to Wigan, sounds like a good night.
Fri 2nd Oct 2009 13:56
Thanks for your comments Steve on pearl stitch.
Glad you enjoyed the symbolic 'knitting' - something that is classed as mundane can symbolise creation and the ongoing intricacies of life that unfortunately can get cut short when death suddenly claims us and we leave so much unfinished. I did try and leave it open to interpretation, and fascinating to see different takes on it.
Really enjoyed your 'I'm not gay but......'

thanks for your lovely comments on my poem 'theme:cruelty'. Sadly is a true story behind the poem but I won't bore you with that!
I really like your 'love's lost curage'-fantastic! didn't know it was easy to find love in new brighton! - my mum's family are all from Wallasey!
Fri 14th Aug 2009 22:00
.hello steve.....I don't understand your comment...I'm simply saying that if man disappears from the Earth there'll be no 'religion' or 'time'.....they're both 'man-made' ideas...you've interpreted something that's not there.......cheers for commenting.

cheers grasshopper, inferior man laughs at the tao, if he did not it would not be the tao....did he mean to write tea, toe, tap? Terrible typists those taoists, to-ists,tapists, trappists, ....etc
