Laura, I've been meaning to share this for ages. I can't even remember when it came up. I'm a stair-leaper too, always from great heights, barely touching a toe on successive landings, rather sorry for poor souls racing down; they can't bound whole floors like me. It's always a wonderful feeling, never anxious. I'm also an air-walker over bushes and fences, sheds - that type of thing. My feet get to them and I naturally rise up and walk a few inches over the top, as butterflies do. I'm waiting for the dream when I walk 'through' things! That'll be interesting. We can dream only what our subconscious will allow. If I dream something like that, I might be dead the next day!

yep send me your email address and ill send it over as an attachment. i dont know if its any good. i really need to lure some children tomy house and read them it although that could be considered unhealthy. imagine the good old stories of yore being interrupted by social services and the pc police...shit what would they do to that baba yaga old witch... eating babies and trapping kids in cages...one of my faves was a bout a boy who was turned into a goblin and worked for this witch for all his life and when he came round from the spell only a day had gone. i love those time warping tales.
so ill send you mine n you send me yours oooer

Thanks for comment on 'for the good times' :-)
Sat 12th Feb 2011 09:25
No worries - I don't keep a tab :)) x
Fri 11th Feb 2011 17:49
Thanks for comments.
So, Laura - do you still like yer meat doggy-style :D ?
Fri 11th Feb 2011 13:24
Thanks for the comment on "Invisible" much appreciated xx
Fri 11th Feb 2011 10:52
Was great to meet you too Laura.
Enjoyed your pieces, trouble is I heard so many I can't remember them now, which sounds terrible, but with so much adrenalin in my system last night it's a wonder I could remember my own name - lol!
Have you blogged the pieces you read as I'd love to see them?
Fri 11th Feb 2011 02:58
Thx for the feedback on my latest.
Truth be told the call centre is just a metaphor for self limitation and torture of the mind...that which is self inflicted by our own internal walls/barriers.
Still call centres are shit and as bad as you say. I once worked in one for a couple of months and it was sould crushing.
Though it was quite funny because in order to get the job I had to delete zeros off my prior salary (lie) because I walked out of a high paid job Hahaha

..yes, chorlton folk, Joe's been running it for about eight years now..gets a good crowd in..including poets of course!!..(have put my mandolin tune 'Josie's Scar' on the audio player).
Tue 8th Feb 2011 16:33
Re; Kismet - thanks Laura - think I know where I went wrong have deleted an unnecessary stanza - adjusted the typo and hope it reads better - don't know what you think now x
Tue 8th Feb 2011 13:59
Hi Laura THanks for comments on the poem. THe word to describe my suit is 'dodgy', unfortunately, I've already used it a couple of times in other poems!
Mon 7th Feb 2011 23:02
Thankyou for running your eyes over my Manboobs.
I was destined to play with them once my interest in my other toy lapsed.
Mon 7th Feb 2011 15:40
..hello Laura...thanks..'Claire on Tuesday' was a pre smoking-ban folk club..I did give up..the music carried on ..then the pubs all closed..not sure what's happening..chris.
Fri 4th Feb 2011 21:00
Laura, thanks so much for your comments on my latest offering. Real lol on the born agains observation!!! As you know, so many,many thanks to you - you are pure inspiration. xxx
Fri 4th Feb 2011 20:18
It was most definitely home made passata...we even have a tomato press...and an allotment filled with, mostly, tomatoes...and my roasted veggies are legendary.
Fri 4th Feb 2011 18:29
Laura, thanks for your comments on Kosher and the Gnostics.Yeah, I remember Creme Brulee and see a few similarities.
Fri 4th Feb 2011 18:27
Thank you for your considered feedback on 'Love is...'. I only posted it because of the Wonderland thread in 'discussions'...have you been following that one? You are right about the rhyming, which is all over the place. I wrote this ages ago but didn't dare post it because I think it's a cliche...and I'd been such a tit about criticising other people's cliches I hadn't got the nerve to post it until the 'Love is...' thread on Wonderland appeared.
Fri 4th Feb 2011 15:49
Of course - now you explain it... there was the pillar of salt for just turning round to take a peek - now what woman wouldn't do that? I think that was Lot's wife - I don't even remember her name.
I've never used salt to get blood out but I have used it on many a red wine stain... shame on me for not thinking about that!
Fri 4th Feb 2011 15:43
Will I be attending the Tudor next week? Is the pope catholic? x
Thu 3rd Feb 2011 11:20
Hi There, To read 'Jesus Unplugged, An explanation' please visit the blog entry. Thx. Win x
Maybe its a jig saw because it was acutually 2 poems pasted together :-)
Tue 1st Feb 2011 14:04
Yay - I've found someone who had the same hot water system! I can remember having to stoke the fire real high if I wanted a bath, even in the middle of summer - then some bastard would swan in there and steal your water if you weren't looking! Oh happy days! x
Tue 1st Feb 2011 13:55
Not that I'm looking to outdo you in dirtiness LOL but I think once a week might have been a luxury for me. No-one's fault though. Could you imagine looking after a paralysed husband with a stack of kids, the only means of heating water being a fire and then on top of that having to go out to work? My mum was superwoman - still is. I was very lucky in many ways. Looking back does make you realise how lucky our kids are now though - let's hope they appreciate it.

You thought you could hear the wind... Believe me thats possible I should never go near brussel sprouts before i settle down to write an epic.
Thank you so much for the wonderful and extremely flattering comments made to my poem.
‘Raged the Wind’
The catalyst for the poem was one of trying to capture a moment before the world as we know it through history and geology actually deciding to render up the spark that began the development of life. To the dizzy heights and progress of today’s Homo sapiens in let’s say for example in Wigan today.
Once again many thanks for taking the time to read and comment I very much appreciate it.
Wed 26th Jan 2011 21:22
thanks again for reading and commenting x
Wed 26th Jan 2011 20:07
Thanks for your comments on Obit. Your support on the night was much appreciated. Glad you think it stands up to be read over too. Quite a surprise really as it seemed almost throw-away when I wrote it and only picked it out to read when I was up there on the night. The grape spoke, not I!
Wed 26th Jan 2011 18:15
The reason I am usually late commenting is I don't seem to get enough time to read this site. When I do I usually can't drag myself away so I sometimes go back to older stuff. There must be loads of good stuff I never see.
Wed 26th Jan 2011 08:14
Hi Laura - thanks for the comment on 'before the curtains open'.. i wrote it first thing in the morning oddly enough as you may have guessed - lol.. glad you liked it - means a lot to me x
Tue 25th Jan 2011 13:38
Thx for the thoughts/feedback on my childhood poem Laura- appreciated.
Fri 21st Jan 2011 09:54
Thanks for your thoughts on Wrong Road Roun'. It's a phrase I heard often enough in my youth on first dates!

Hi Laura, thanks (I think) for your comments on my prostitute poem.
As an ex-computer programmer I certainly have no problems with numbers neither am suffering from Low Latent Inhibition. I just like playing around with words and their placements.
The idea with 'Episodic' and putting it on it's own line is that it not only refers to viewing but also when one is in a pub one has 'episodes' of sitting, standing, going to bar, toilet etc; then maybe being involved in your own thoughts, conversations then occasionally becoming aware/viewing what's going on in pub.
Wed 19th Jan 2011 19:27
Laura, I haven't looked at that paper in a couple of years now. But maybe I shall again. Who knows what I perceived that night? I just remember saying over and over: This is not possible, and then proving that it was. It seemed like some kind of esoteric insight, actually a bit scary because I don't know where it came from. Up to now I haven't shared this experience with anyone except my husband.
Tue 18th Jan 2011 21:21
Laura. Thanks for your comments on Picnic.I'm a big Patti Smith fan as well.
Tue 18th Jan 2011 19:22
Laura, many years ago I did some number crunching based on 10 - based on the Bible. I was completely blown away - like I had discovered quantum mechanics. The figures turned on themselves perfectly - the results were completely predictable no matter how I approached them. I wrote the numbers down for fear I would not remember the sequencing, the rationale, the explanation. But next morning the numbers were unreadable to me. I have the paper still, with its number columns and anecdotes, but I cannot fathom it. I KNOW they were amazing the night before. Life can be weird.
Tue 18th Jan 2011 18:14
Ta for commenting on my true life poem, Pit Pony. What terrible days they were and how glad I am that they are over. Although I still suffer from coal blindness I'd really love to share a cuddly bunny curry.
Tue 18th Jan 2011 16:59
sorry i hadn't realised i had posted multiple ones i have had a look and cant see anymore i hope they have been taken down by admin
Tue 18th Jan 2011 16:55
yeh ill be there...see you then x (if i can get lift sorted!)
Mon 17th Jan 2011 17:14
Laura - fancy you being at Freshfield Sands as recently as you were - wow - I'm quite sure it looks heaps better than on my last visit - nature trail and all lol x
Mon 17th Jan 2011 13:22
Thanks Laura, it was a difficult but also a deeply profound experience which was hell to go through but later provided such immense learning and opportunity for personal growth - which is often the case... xXx
Mon 17th Jan 2011 12:46
Thanks for your observations. I am interested what it means to YOU. So actually you are the person best of all to qualify on my work :-)
Whilst I like some bits, Couplets 2,6,7 & 9. Others are not poetic and are more just like statements. It's ok if they are odd and quirky or dont make complete sense but they need to do something and not be just bland. Maybe I have been reading too many free verse ghazals lately. The disconnected narative is a feature of the Ghazal form and so is ok but strange if you are not used to it. In the hair ghazal the shers are also disconnected BUT they are pulled together by the common refrain "your hair". Here the refrain "By it" makes things more random.
Also interesting that often (and on this page) people liked the shers I didn't particularly like, Hmm.
Mon 17th Jan 2011 11:53
Hi Tom. Thanks for the comments on Ghazal (your hair), this one was written over a year ago and was never happy with it . rewrote it in pub last week and like it now. The previous ghazal (by it) I am not sure about. Would be interested on your input compared to say, (your hair). Houston
Sat 15th Jan 2011 02:19
you were dead good at the tudor..but I am a berk so dont listen to me :)you looked a bit like Jo caulfield.
Fri 14th Jan 2011 17:06
Thanks for the kind comments on Doing It Twice. To quote Steve Womack, "These days the only time I think about doing it twice is just before I've done it once".
