Reminds me of a conversation

Posted on Sun, 28 Jan 2018

Reminds me of a conversation I once had with a taxi driver, when we were reminiscing about one of the first nightclubs to open in our town.  We wondered if we might have once bumped into each other there, back in the day.  

Him:  Ah,...

Posted on Sun, 21 Jan 2018

We've all been there!  The picture in our minds is perhaps not quite what others see.  Lots of fun and life in this.

Small typo - in the first line of the last verse, should it be 'her' rather than 'het'?

Posted on Sun, 21 Jan 2018

I'm not vegan, or even vegetarian, but I've never understood people who say others shouldn't be vegan because it's not 'natural'.  It's not 'natural' for human animals to have flush toilets or central heating, but no-one seems to have a problem...

Posted on Mon, 15 Jan 2018

It does feel like things are changing, one way or another.  It seems as though there are two forces engaged in a giant tug of war, and at the moment it's unclear which one will win.  All that tradition is indeed comforting to many people, but it'...

Posted on Mon, 15 Jan 2018

I very much liked the structure of this, and the image of the dream slipping out and smashing on the tiles, releasing all that wonderful imagery, is very effective.  Similarly the way it turns gently around on itself at the end, almost a dream...

Posted on Sat, 13 Jan 2018

As another cat owned fool, I very much enjoyed this.  The image of unwinding like near broken clocks was particularly striking (oh dear, no pun intended) and there was something about the rhythm and the sensuousness of the language that really...

Posted on Tue, 09 Jan 2018

A timely reminder that, sadly, such attitudes do not belong to the past.  The structure of this, the way the rhythm changes from the flow of the first section to the jaggedness of the second, is very effective at emphasising the content.  It...

Lovely sentiments Richard.  And possibly the most important line in there is: 'still not too late, you know'.

Posted on Sun, 07 Jan 2018

It may indeed be very relevant.  As the poet says, 'What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare'.  Standing and staring is in danger of becoming a lost art.  I hope your fictional society has better luck preserving it...
