Many, many congrats Mac and Seth!

I love Seth’s ‘Soc al d stance’. He’s developing a series of these missing ‘I’ poems, I think. I read another one somewhere recently.

Mac, I remember this one, or at least a poem that shared a few lines with this one. It’s changed considerably. Really enjoyed.

I’m going to have to submit to ‘Streetcake’. I really like its innovative approach. So many interesting and unusual poems.

Cheers,

Tristan

Thanks Tristan. Yes, Seth's poem ticked both humour and relevance.

cheers

Well done Mac. I don't much like most of what is usually in Streetcake - Seth knows this, and (I think) attributes it to my fuddyduddyness - but I like your poem. And his, which is typically playful and erudite.

Cheers

David

The issue of that magazine has to be purchased, right? I couldn't find a link that took me into it.
If I don't critique your poem, it is probably because I don't understand it.

Thanks David. I've been enjoying Edward Thomas this week and just finished a collection of Katherine Mansfield's short stories and I'm now revisiting Kenneth Grahame's 'The Wind in the Willows' . Just an average Streetcake contributor :D

It is a free magazine Perry:

I've never seen so much experimental poetry in one place. I'm going to have to take a sedative.

That brought a smile to my face this morning. I can just imagine you needing a sedative after reading Streetcake Perry. Very funny.

Cheers,
