Nevada 1953
L. B. Mek said:

devoid of inhumane Nuclear context
your Poetry, reads transparent
shades-in, those silent worries
where we contemplate, that juxtaposed
In a fate, distinguished by invisible
lines of featherweight chance:
\'some consequence,
on the edge of History.

12:04, under a changeless sky,
a hand poised\'
(I know little
but even i can recognise you\'ve crafted
a Brilliant poem
Your talent, accentuated
by your succinctly
Sparse, choice wording
and poise, in your poetic
Voice and measured tonality)
thank you!
for choosing to share, dear Poet

talking Bukowski

And a fine tribute at that. I\'ve read some Bukowski and this seems true to the man. It follows his general pattern of sort of rambling and also has some of his brilliant phrasings. Nice work. - Phil A.

Winter Dogs
L. B. Mek said:

even devoid of theological alignment;
this is Brilliant!
\'I am the collector of aluminum treasure,
my sack of today’s catch.
A straw dog of sinew and bone,
and the leaves dance around my feet,
like winter brides.\'

The Poem Of Our Lives
Palebluecardigan said:

I loved the book and page metaphors, I use them in my poems too. Looking around and writing about something you see and feel might as well be the best way of writing, good job!!

Thank you Paleblue. Yours is the first comment in days. That poem is a poem of inward journey. That you for your warm comments. I\'ll check out a poem of yours. I\'ll give feedback(one caveat- I always try to address both strong and weak points. I build up not with flattery, but honestly

The fifth part stood out to me, the concept of time is so unknown to us and we have many theories about it. Time is built on memory in a sense, and memory itself exists outside of time. Shortly, I loved your poem and wonder how others have not commented on this masterpiece! Truly wonderful!

and it\'s 4 o\'clock somewhere behind my eyes
dusk arising said:

This reminded me of how i felt wondering how many days were left and what i could do in them or should do in them and all sorts of visions and games went before me... the day they said it\'s cancer mate..... that was 2019

Sorry if i\'m well off the mark about your poem.

Late Scratch
Edthepoet said:

Picked up on the Bukowski influence after line 3, had to Google a random section of the poem to make sure it wasn\'t a Bukowski original... So I think you captured more than a touch of that thunder. I dig it.

This was BEUATIFUL! Sylvia is also one of my all-time favorite poets (check my bio) and I definitely felt her influence on this piece. Your words were selected so finely and the result was splendor. Bravo! πŸŒŸπŸ˜‰πŸ’•πŸ‘

The Poem Of Our Lives
L. B. Mek said:

\'I am reading the poem of our lives.
As if we\'re somewhere within it.
As if it was written before it was written.
As if I am the one who\'s writing it.
As if part of my live was one of the chapters.
As if you are part of the book.\'
you may be new to the MPS block
but your poetry, is testimony to your practised skill..
a great read, thanks for sharing
