Missed this first time round (second time today!) Glad I got here via the usual process (‘ Sow and ye shall..’) Great job – you couldn’t up your output could you? I appreciate you are busy, but you have the goods plus a commitment to this site, so…..?

While here, your reference to Blake got me going… Beyond Tyger, his poetry was a little two mystical for my somewhat literal mind, so I never got into him. However your reference to The Chimney Sweeper pushed me to investigate. Two TCS’s on Poetry Foundation - are there any more? Of the two I’d be voting for ‘A little black thing…..’. That your choice too?

Very much in the style of Blake - both the poem and the illustration. I am a huge William Blake fan, so I like this.

if I could hit that red heart shaped icon up there a dozen times, or more even .. it would hardly register anywhere near how much I enjoyed the journey you just took me on ........................... a real gut wrenching bit of seemingly real nostalgia .. far better than just damned good in my most humble opinion ..............................

Very powerful and so very beautifully written, incredibly sad but like we have agreed these brutal things are still going on even today.

its definitely a Poem! and more - meaningfully
a rustic inking, of a life\'s raw nerve-ending: feeling\'s
in short, its simply amazing and thank you for sharing!
\'If I get brave enough I may go visit Rogelio’s Cafe
Haven’t been there in way over a year
Rogelio may have forgotten me by now
and order shrimp and mole poblano enchiladas
--They aren\'t on the menu, you have to ask--
And sit with the ghosts of my Mom and Dad
And wave across the street at Ricky Flores and his mom Minnie
Rocking with big Flores smiles on the front porch of their tidy white casita\'

It matters, of course, little whether a poem or just musings. It is rich in detail of people and places you have known which may be just images in your head or….
Great work.

I am quite sure, being the lover of words and more specifically of poetry, that I am ...
I was almost certain to gravitate back to this little gem ...
It is after all, one that can easily stand the test of time ...

Ahan you too write light anx playful songs that can be enjoyed both as youthful rhymes and grownup stuff too. The imagery is fabulous. Kudos.!!
Oh and i just noted that you are a poet not poetess. And maybe you are Texan?

A brilliantly flowing little story here, accompanied by a wonderfully crafted \"nouveau illumination.\"

Looking forward to more \"Fake Blakes\" and other stuff.

Take care,
