Re: the Voice from the Postcards

Hi SL, To quote an expression, to blossom and fold inwards , the former is hooking my interest - the repetitive posters on poles and the leopard in an orange grove - but the internalised significance is buried for accent and ayre of lineage . Her love is not an imposter is plain enough. The sense o...

Re: Venus in the steam (was Drip-dried)

` Venus in the steam A minute’s a long time to prolong nakedness, let your arms hang towelless in perspex skin, dappled in the dawn- lit steam.

Re: For the Love of Granite

Lotus, I would say neither. I am gay and had sex with men when I was younger, so I am writing about a man. If I were a Lesbian or a heterosexual man, I would be writing about a woman instead of a man. However, I understand if you think you are seeing male superiority in the poem. In these lines ......

It's difficult to associate "accent" ,and here, I'm assuming you mean a dialectical accent, with the surety of a leopard at rest in an orange grove.
dear Ravallion

indeed a language accent
that can not be disguised by camouflage
