:lol: Not too impenetrable then :D I'm not into hierarchical comparisons, tastes are subjective, but from my viewpoint your poems I'd group with Callin/Crook/Nash for interest. Not sure what my future plans are for workshops, but thank you for your generous words.

hi Trevor The more I read your poems, the more I've gotten to like them: the domestic/parental context and theme threads on language/identity/legacy.

Re: A poem that I read today by Mac

Metaphors are often challenging, but understood ones, are like waking up in a morning shower (to use a simile :D they clear the cobwebs - when not a cliche :roll: )

A feature of watercolour painting is the 'happy accident'. It's the use of water. This poem by Sarah Cave called out on the water reminded me of that: http://stridemagazine.blogspot.com/2020/11/out-on-water.html?view=timeslide On another issue: There is some sort of correlation, it seems to me, betw...

Re: A poem that I read today by Mac

This is wrong, this is right. Assertion is endemic to a style of critique, often reflecting a mind blinkered and locked in a personal aesthetic or worse, an 'educated' one.

Response time is one week via publication. If your poem doesn’t appear online within one week, consider it rejected.
A most efficient submission process.

Enjoyed Joyce's The Dubliners , a bit chilly and distant, can't say I connected emotionally with the characters, but the narratives engaged. Started reading his novel Ulysses , love the diction surprises, may finish the read this time! Tolkien's Lord of the Rings felt unchallenging in comparison, pr...
