Hello Laura, thank you so much for your comment on my poem Strong Vulnerability. It's a double thank you because it led me to your poem Dear Margaret.
A stunning performance. Very strong.
So sorry to hear of the passing of your father.
Indeed a very special relationship.
I look forward to discovering more of your work.

Hannah

Teenagers.

And females not so young either. The saddest sight I ever saw on a tram was a young girl/teen putting on make-up until her whole face looked like an audition for clown-school, a full paste job with a clear outline that completed the mask effect.

I'm sure she thought she was much prettier. And she looked ghastly. Actually ugly. Sometimes I HATE the 'beauty business'; the deliberate exploitation of youthful vulnerability and the degradation of charming, natural beauty.

And those perfume commercials! I almost growl at the TV, wanting to throw a heavy pot through the screen. They are obnoxious!

Hi Laura. Thanks so much for your congrats on POTW. A wee bit of the old kudos goes a long way! I hope you enjoyed your trip down south. The home fires are definitely burning. Trouble is I found some queen wasps on a lot I ordered, and they ended up flying round the lounge!
Happy Xmas m'lady. x

Laura that is so beautiful and what an honour. It's funny that I commented about how I interpreted it without reading that post. Exactly the reason poetry means so much to me as well. Touching something in others in so many ways and connecting. It's what got me through some tough stuff and continues to inspire me. What a lovely thing. Xxx

thanks for commenting on 'Rosetta...' Laura - I remember you also liked the companion piece to this that I wrote when Philae 'touched down' on the comet a year or two ago ('Philae shakes the hand of God'). Feels like there should be a third in m me to make up the trilogy at some stage - hopefully that battery will come back to life... :-)

I'm losing the plot Laura. Just made a comment re Things to Do and it's vaporised. Milking a cat is a very hazardous thing to do I imagine and I have no idea where that came from. My diseased sense of what sounded good perhaps !
Thanks for reading and questioning.

Just following up on OCD and your comments. Interesting and struck a chord that you touched to equal up - uncannily the same with me. My mum used to encourage to "touch wood" an old superstition. I carried this into various contingencies, and even in my fifties I still kept touching the gear stick in my car (sometimes unconsciously) ! All I can say is that it gave a sense of comfort in some way. Now we have a microphone of course to touch. We all need these touch sensors anyway. What a mess !!

I loved your write up of Linton. I wish I could have been there. I was at Southall fighting with fascists when Blair Peach was murdered. And I have always loved Reggea Fi Peach. I have a poem on here I posted on the Anniversary. sadly not many remember now. Did LKJ do Fi Peach?

Thank you for reading "my Granddad". I've added a verse that rounds it off. As for performing... I try but sadly my knees knock so hard the words vibrate.

I'm glad you commented because I've discovered your collection. I'm an old punk and Thatcher hater unrepentant. Also with a love for Linton kwezi.

Thanks for your comments on These Streets. Yeah, you get it alright. I was exactly the same, always fighting, foul mouthed little cow. You had to be that way! I don't regret it. It fucked me up and made me stronger all at the same time.

It definitely makes me appreciate what I've got now. I feel bloody lucky. Like you, so many people I grew up with are either dead, on drugs, alcoholics or mentally fucked. I've gone down all of those routes (well except death lol) but I made it to the other side. I know it's a bit cheesy, but I feel proud about that :)

Hi Laura. Had a good sleep and thought more on Born Again. Hope I didn't come on too strong with my comment! I've made a nip and tuck, and I hope you might like it now. I feel it is more visually satisfying even though could upset the trads. x

'Holly and red berries' are symbols of the 'crown of thorns and the droplets of blood upon the face of Jesus' in the Passion Story of Eastertide. Considering the week, maybe your dream is not so unusual. Perhaps some memory twigged in your mind, even from childhood, especially a ghastly image. Or you're still fighting emotional ideas about the Story you can't yet confront rationally. Maybe never.

That'll be £1000, please. HAHA. I have more crust than bread. I'm part joking and part serious about the comments though. I read Freud's 'Dreams' many years ago; I thought I'd found a treasure in an old second-hand bookshop. But - after several attempts to 'understand the great thinker' I just pitched it. Some of it made some sense, and some of it seemed just like hogwash. I was totally disillusioned in its reputation. So, I'll never know whether I wasn't smart enough to understand, or smart enough to toss it out. Conundrum!

I love having you as a friend. The freedom!

Hi Laura, thanks for your comment on Ad Libbing. Funny, unlike the title, this one did take a bit of work and rewriting etc, so glad you like it. The 're-right' was on purpose, kind of cheesy, but somehow had to be that way. Thanks again :)

Thanks Laura for going to so much trouble - a total inspiration all the way. I entirely get your drift, which was why I used the indented format on the three lines only.

This is surely one of the chief purposes of such a site, and you do it credit!

I've just now checked about Concrete Poetry, and it has opened my eyes to the potential, and I think I will definitely give more consideration to construction as and when it inspires me - maybe a few experiments on the way.
Thanks so much Laura.

Hi Laura. Just to say that I've re - entered The Restorer's Lot on the basis of your comments, leaving three lines indented as I feel they need a special emphasis. I think this is a better presentation.
So thanks again for an intelligent take.!!

Hi Laura,
Thanks for your comments on "In The Old Fence-Post Was A Perfectly Round Hole".
D'ya know, I think it's true that an improvement in my efforts is due to inspiration from reading "The Melting of the Ice"! If this is a temporary effect, you'll have to keep on writing so I can!
Thanks again :)

Thank you for the very kind comments on Puthering Laura!

Puthering, that's a real word eh? In my childhood household it was a term for any seemingly chaotic action, quote my mother:

"that flour is just puthering all over the shop"

Laura, thank you very much for your kind words on 'Deals on Wheels'. Very much appreciated!
I sense where you are coming from regarding recreational aspects... I once had to take Tramadol following surgery.. I was floating on the ceiling for at least two weeks. (I always wondered why it never caught on).
Thanks again Laura.
