Re: Glasgow Review Of Books/3

Thanks, Mac! The maze is quite small, but the spot is great. Glad about the liking the maze poem. It is partly an old one that didn't go anywhere for a few years and then I found it again and completed it. Nice when that happens. Thanks, Ray! I am on the brink of purchasing some new flippers. Glad a...

Re: Slacker

Greetings, Raymondo Very good. Wondered if "call" is enough rather than "called". Especially liked the last stanza and the internal "nod"/"God" rhyme. If I were quibbling...and you have not left me with much to quibble about..."broken record" seems a bit well worn as a metaphor. Unless, of course, t...

Re: Instrumental (was Palaeolithic Flute) revised

Greetings!

Enjoyed it.
I especially liked the last two sections...the "i" and "r" sounds.

I wonder if this bit might be cut/replaced since the information has rather been given in the title?

Okay, we may say Celts are still around, but it is bit of a stretch because we all know it is an old classification. If someone shou...

Re: Climbing (revised)

Greetings, Mac With Ray, I thought the first six lines were terrific. You rather lost me with the next bit. I first read the "But not..." as picking up the trusting on the previous line. So I was left with the idea of not trusting the "blistered sound inside solitude"...which was not puzzling becaus...

Re: Shared History (Was: Long Threads)

Good one. At first I wondered about the use of the "cotton on" cliché, but then saw the link with the later thread theme. But then I did wonder about the "lost on me" last line. Can longer threads be "lost on" a person? Perhaps, but I wonder if there is a more material based + less familiar expressi...

Low tide, water far out. Small, moored boats of the bay are drowning in the dry. Where are all the shore crabs? Are they buried, waiting, drumming a sand-scaped song? Are there pointy prophets, hidden, odd-eyed, tapping "Soon, soon, we will be saved!"? Ours, in comparison, is a feeble plot line: mer...
