Really interesting the way

Posted on Thu, 12 Oct 2017

Really interesting the way this deals with memory and recall.  The bit where the mother insists that there were always birthday parties, flatly contradicting the memory, and causing the narrator to doubt it.  I like the way things aren't neatly...

Genuine romance in this, in all senses of the word.  Very tender, very insightful.

I really liked the structure

Posted on Fri, 06 Oct 2017

I really liked the structure and flow of this, Rhiannon.  It reads very well. There are some bizarre interpretations of all sorts of things out there.  Whatever one's own particular religious views, some of the conspiracy and end-of-world...

Great that this appeared on

It's interesting how poems

Posted on Sun, 17 Sep 2017

It's interesting how poems take different people different ways.  I thought it was very clear, but in a very subtle way.  I think you have to stay true to your vision, especially as it has struck a chord with a number of readers.  That's the...

I like the way this shows

Posted on Fri, 01 Sep 2017

I like the way this shows that depression invades all the senses.  The description of the grin 'held up with string' is particularly striking and really conveys the mask that people use to disguise the reality.  And of course, as you indicate,...

It's whether reading the

Posted on Mon, 28 Aug 2017
