Frank the Tank

A poem about an unpleasant person. We all know one.
Cherry

Mother, Memories, and Calculus

I wrote this poem a couple of years ago under a different name. To be fair, it's a little cathartic. It's about memories and associations. It stems from how my mother died suddenly (a long time ago) when I was in the middle of my O levels. So perhaps it is not about memories but the triggers that revive them.

Wonderful read. Insanely jealous of your ability.

Posted on Wed, 06 Jun 2018

This was an absolutely wonderful read. From the opening lines I had total confidence that the writing would not let me down, that it would stay crisp and sharp and the coherence would be maintained. It is as if you have found the secret of...

I do like this...though I guessed early on where it was going to lead me, it didn't detract from the poem. The technical language of the imagery is nicely at odds with the actual subject. This creates a tension that brings the poem alive.

This is very short but it conjures up a vivid image. Even though it is a fantastic notion, it still has believability. Overall it works really well.

I like the subject. I also like how compact the writing is, nothing wasted, every line brief but adding its own weight.

This resonated (second time I've used that word today and it's only 9.30)

When I got hit by the depression juggernaut I didn't even know I was standing in the road. Apparently everyone else knew something was wrong but because I was busy...

M'Lud,

The plagues and rashes remain.

Who said anything about commenting? I'm after the lazy blighters who dont read other peoples efforts. If none of us read the work of others then what would be the point...

The plot works, the pace is

Posted on Mon, 18 Jun 2018
