Sorry Laura I've only just seen your message from Nov 2nd. I'm glad that you're getting the better of things and you're probably right that when I wrote that I was probably in a similar frame of mind. I'll try for the next Tudor.

Ta for the comment. Glad to hear email / poem followed so quick - great to splurge it out but not everyone can do that and not only make sense but also touch others as you did. Fantastic - shawoman (as opposed to shaman!). XXX

thankyou for your encouragement and comments :) x

Hi Laura (Leiberfraumilch), you had me worried for a moment. Thought I'd trangressed an unfathomable rule somewhere. I go with my observation as you know and what I wrote was about a refreshing group of young foreign ladies at the local Wetherspoons who quite uplifted the atmosphere from the usual retired stolid folk who sit around. Hope you're OK though.
Thu 29th Sep 2011 12:38
Aww thanks Laura..actually wrote this for my lad when he was in Iraq..
Thu 29th Sep 2011 11:34

Laura, you are so astute. I didn't just 'fiddle' with the last verse, I nearly tore out my hair - would I or wouldn't I include it? Finally, I decided to go with it, for another 'dimension' maybe, for absolute clarification of intent, but the 'pulling power' of the other four verses is definitely compromised. If we were face to face, privately, I would be even more honest.
What is written on your right fist? Is it 'fake'?
Thu 22nd Sep 2011 12:13
nice one laura and yeah i got into full of crow magazine, not out til next spring though and i got two into amphibi.us, theyre only online magazines but fuk it like, still waiting on a few replys, hows it goin with u?
Wed 21st Sep 2011 23:59
thanks for the comments on my latest. I chickened out of the relationship (wisely) and the climb was just a backdrop reflecting that fact! XXX
Wed 21st Sep 2011 18:11
Hey Laura, Thx for the feedback.
I have left some waffle on the poem lol
Wed 21st Sep 2011 12:36
Hi Tom, would love that but thats the day my duaghter arrives on half term hols! Doh. H
Wed 21st Sep 2011 11:34
Hi Tom, missed meeting up, must get over to Bolton again soon, and yes you have done it again, she was a nurse (You were the only one to tune into that) H
Mon 19th Sep 2011 15:50
Thx for the comments/feedback on my last Laura. You understood my thinking behind the poem completely. Daft I know but I searched for a couple of hours just to find the right word for the title Haha. To get something that eluded enough without telling, to be understated without being totally obscure.
Fri 16th Sep 2011 12:43
'Ey up, Monkey!
Thanks for reading Janis.
She was a bit special, wasn't she?
We have a kid in our village who reminds me of her. I first saw her about 3 years ago when she was 13 at a school talent competition. So shy she didn't speak or look up. When the music started this huge voice opened up from the bowels of the earth. I shuddered.
She's in a local band now called the Lucettes, which you can find on YouTube.
On another front (and pulling in the thread of sexy songs) did you know that Leonard Cohen's Chelsea Hotel was about his relationship with JJ?

Re: Townships, thanks very much Laura, I know people have very strong views about RSA and I did attempt something similar to this a while back but varied the theme because I am leading a group on African poetry in October. Your kind endorsement has more value than you may have realised.
Wed 14th Sep 2011 17:33
Thx for the feedback on my latest Laura- appreciated X
Hopefully catch ya at the next Wigan.
Wed 14th Sep 2011 10:56
i think we should have a poem in an anthology do. i think its better that your works going out like that. you can see its standard in relation to the other work. I spose online books are all the thing these days but it proves to me how new writers have all the fresh talent x well done x
ps i love that its got something to do with me...ah my young protege miss taylor is doing so well...particularly as sometimes you cant see why youre reading, what is the point. when your on stage and the lights in your eyes and its a circus. Im so glad i got the message of that poem through. makes it all worthwhile. i may have said this aready but i am now ready to retire ;)
Tue 13th Sep 2011 22:29
thats great laura, your poetry is quality and your a great example for new comers to the art.
are you having a book launch do?
great great news xx
Tue 13th Sep 2011 19:37
Great! Well done you!xx
Tue 13th Sep 2011 17:43
Well I'm totally delighted to hear that you are being published and even more so to think that it is a poem that you wrote for one of our little on line competitions. It makes it feel all the more worthwhile running them. That was a very saucy poem! x
Tue 13th Sep 2011 17:24
Cheers Laura. Now back to work! Congrats on being published, you work certainly merits it.
Sun 11th Sep 2011 21:59

Fri 9th Sep 2011 15:26
Hi Laura, the folk-club you refer to is called "The red lion." It's in Newburgh just below Parbold. Feel free to drop in any Monday night. (except bank holidays)it starts at 8.30pm. Straight up the stairs. (Room at the top.)
Tue 6th Sep 2011 11:42
hopefully see you at the Tudor?..x
Tue 6th Sep 2011 08:13
I like The Fall very much hence the title
thanks for taking the time to read and make comment on my poem
Thu 1st Sep 2011 13:24
thanks for the comment over 'My Hometown'... It's a very personal piece about my hometown (Stretford)- dead pleased you like it.. See you soon (Almost back on my feet totally now) x
Sat 27th Aug 2011 18:01
It is scary how fast those kids did time Laura.
'Cause and Effect'; I read it again today, even better on second reading. I hope to catch you perform it- excellent.
Thu 25th Aug 2011 13:20
it took me about 15 yrs to write the 400, so if you're doing 50 a year then you are doing a lot better than me !
sometimes I couldn't write anything for months then half a dozen all at once :)
Wed 24th Aug 2011 18:00
oo-er Missus, nudge, nudge :) (mother earth)
Hi - Like I said to ann Foxglove - I'd just run out of poems - I'd posted the (very nearly) 400 I'd written over the last few years, so, until I wrote something else .....
Fri 19th Aug 2011 21:09
Hi Laura - thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment on "The Patient". Actually, I started last year but left for awhile. I'm adding a few of what I've written in the meantime. Let me know what you think of my older work (some is dark also, some isn't dark at all - like life, I guess!) if you are so inclined and I am looking forward to returning the kindness and take a look at your work too!
I'm so glad that people picked up on the progression from whisper to scream because that was how it evolved and I wanted to somehow get that progression down on paper. I also very much appreciate that you agree with the sentiments of the piece - I hope that anyone going through this now will get some comfort out of knowing that someone understands.
