Re: No Small Thing

. Hi Trev, not sure that has helped (though that could just be me). Three things: Verses one and two begin with 'men', verse three does not. (and might a better start be achieved by switching the order of lines 1 and 2 in verse one?) It's very hard to overlook such a statement of the bleedin' obvio...

Re: No Small Thing

. Hi Trev, I really like the last three lines in what appears to be the post-script because you, my child, were no small thing. not to mention I saw the smallness of time ahead and he contagion of parenthood reeking but S2 seems to be a restatement of S1 (though what a 'frilly minute' is, I've no i...

Re: Dante on a Diet in Tesco

. Hi Charles, like the title and, despite knowing little of Dante, enjoyed the read. It's as plausible a take on a journey through some hellish circle as any. But, there's a lot of repetition of terms (two upon s in the opening line, I then I am, shop, how, heavy/heaviness, queue, And lo! then And ...

Re: Ongoing

I have no practice in these situations, - time for one of your metaphors Trev, not an extended description. Dig in to the inarticulacy (if that isn't a contradiction in terms), don't settle for just ...

Re: Ongoing

. Hi Trev, like the opening, like the closing, but in between it seems to skim the surface of things (and 'tactful period' reads like an ill-considered pun - though perhaps that's the intent given 'premature'?) s1. Really like the inversion of the singing going on outside an Irish bar, but none of ...

Re: Native Tongue

. Hi Trev, rather more miss than hit, for me; too many images, none of which feel explored/developed. I really like the first verse, I thought the piece was going to tell me something about being a immigrant and learning a new language (but then it goes on to cover the same ground as a lot of your ...

The great ones entrance us, inspire, enhance us, with such a movement of the soul. a quickening of heart the very...

Re: Pushing At An Open Door

Speaking of, and mindful that cutting S2 was never an argument I thought I'd likely win ... They put on a spread, a regular junket; Evidence-based practice shows that clinical judg...

Re: The Drug Lunch

. Hi ray. Love the ending, but think I the narrator needs to appear, however briefly, in the middle sections. Not convinced by S2 (the first two lines in particular) - I like the pun with 'junket' and the import of 'evidence-based' but the rest of the verse doesn't really add much or advance the na...

Re: The end of (revision)

Though maybe more 'we' in the second verse (However, we sensed / and the ... ?), it feels a little bit too distanced. There seem to be so ma...
