To have a place to live I’ve recreated the universe
I’m writing an afterlife in case.
Stunningly beautiful and strong.

Hi Otis, That may well be true. I came a cross a phrase this morning... Grief is the price we pay for love. Win x

Hi Otis, it's always a bit radical and usually impertinent when someone suggests excising the beginning of a poem. Thanks for explaining and defending why the lines are there. I really enjoyed the spirit of it all.

Dear Otis, thank you so much for your comment on my profile page, means a lot.
I'm in painting mode right now and haven't visited WOL for some time but will return to read your poetry when I can set some time aside to take your words in.
Look forward to this.

Hi Otis, I dunno whether you have given American a fresh listen, I Put it to Solomon Jabby's - Firmly Planted In Dub record. Added a sample of a pandoras box opening at the end. Give it a listen if you can, i would be glad of your feedback. The original album the music came from is Firmly Planted by Solomon Jabby, of which i strongly recommend.
Thank you for your comments on the original American, that i wrote. Yep, there seems to be a great deal of ignorance around, even after Barak's election victory. If anything, his Presidency seems to give license to those who would say 'They' got what they wanted. perhaps they will shut up now??? But i know myself, its deeper, much deeper. And i can only hope years of injustice, will one day find its peace.
there is more i could say, but i know you know where im coming from.
My wife is a zulu. She hails from SA. I spent time in the region working for the United Nations, and i know at first hand the plight of many at the hands of the tyrannical. Not all ears are unassuming.
thanks once again for your comments. I really like your work and read all.
By the way, my second sons middle name is Otis.
Im smiling at that.
Stay well Otis.
Best wishes and much love.
