Brilliant choice. I like the

Posted on Wed, 13 Jun 2018

Brilliant choice. I like the rhymes, how they're not obvious, they sort of pull at you like light on moving water. As the poem is moving. To start with all I noticed was how beautiful the sound is. But the meaning is beautiful too when I read it...

The most helpful advice I got

Posted on Wed, 20 Jun 2018

The most helpful advice I got, though I couldn't understand it at the time, is to realise you have choices. It's only so bad if you feel trapped.

It seemed somehow menacing

It seemed somehow menacing from the first sentence. I like the wonderful sound details of the familiar, "dragged it gently along the terrace" "cool little bubbles popping" "the bottle making a small guzzling sound" "wings beating out a faint...

I like the idea of a better

Posted on Fri, 15 Jun 2018

I like this too, but had to read it a few times to realise what you were saying. Found myself putting in line breaks? I do like the idea behind it and all the descriptions very much?

My partner believes dogs to

Posted on Wed, 06 Jun 2018

My partner believes dogs to be spirit guides. Duko seems to be guiding the narrator to a more peaceful place, helping him to accept a horrible truth rather than put life on hold while hoping for the impossible. I like that the two people who have...

I love the sense of movement

Posted on Fri, 08 Jun 2018
