This is Poetry?

One of the first few sonnets I ever wrote... I took a word out of it today.

Strange Days

This is a piece that didn't make it into the very unreliable Berlin memoir 'In the Mouth of the Bear'. (Available on the 'Zon, in big writing). It's just descriptive, it's not really about anything, so I left it out.

Invitation to a Cocktail Waitress

Another poem poked at and fiddled with. Imagine it read in TW's bar-room growl while he smokes a cigarette. Image made by me at canva.com a collage of PD images

Totentanz

image is PD source wiki commons. Now that Netanyahu is intent on his own Crime of the Century. I thought I'd put all my Guignol, Teutonic Mediaeval, Holocaust, Apocalyptic (basically anything that mentions Totentanz) in the same collection. Don't wait up, it may take some time.

Mono Log

First of all, let's call it prosetry. Well, I've been playing with this one for well over 10 years. My normal mode of working is give the keyboard a bash and then dash. Those I do fiddle with, I rarely improve. However, I've had a go with this... Regarding the quoted/allusory material, I would say that this is the upper (or do I mean lower??) limit of acceptable, but what do I know. If anyone's worried, I'll take it down.

I do love some of the pet/nicknames other languages have. I believe Mahtab can be rendered as 'Splendour of the Moon'. Beautiful, that.

Do keep going. I believe you have the raw...

In the first para you mix up your tenses. The night wind "blows" but the moon "hung".

Later you have

"At 10:46pm on Friday 3rd December, a random incident occur outside The Beachcomber pub."

Did you start this as all...

Marvellous stuff.

  You have Long Cheney Jr vice Lon Chaney Jr in the paragraph beginning "A goaty, hairy chap..."

Do tell me to bog off if it's deliberate.

Enjoyed the Stones reference.

Well done.
