I know what it feels like

Posted on Sun, 03 Mar 2019

I know what it feels like when all the voices get too loud and it's like they are battering you, you describe it so well. And then going outside where there are birds which can fly, it's a great contrast, the lightness after the heaviness. Also,...

Made me think of a patchwork

Posted on Thu, 28 Feb 2019

Made me think of a patchwork eiderdown made of gauzy mists, black velvet inside caves, shimmering satin clouds, thick embroidery of hedges, like reliving memories as you sew it together with words.

"The way I go is over quilts

Posted on Sat, 23 Feb 2019

I am not sure. The little girl's grandmother is reported saying she wished they had not named him? If the rest of the family feel that also, maybe their wishes should have been put first?

If the boy who did this wanted notoriety, if there...

Posted on Tue, 19 Feb 2019

 Heard the voice clearly in my head - you wrote the accent so well. You have made a voice that sounds real, joking even as the air runs out

Posted on Tue, 12 Feb 2019

that's so clever! It reads like waves coming in, each one higher than the last, or a time lapse film. I love how the last line in each verse links to each next like cogs fitting perfectly, it emphasises how everything works perfectly one stage...

Posted on Sun, 10 Feb 2019

The trouble is that the driving is destroying lush forests. The more people run away the less there is to escape to. The last verse is so  hopless, a life that started off aiming at the stars can't reach them and becomes debris which brings down...
