Just In
for Blackout

"her pen sounds oddly fitful, scratching

almost frantically against the paper now that

the computer has simplified into a dull, empty

box, a meaningless construct of smooth black-beige. "

I can identify...after Isobel (the hurricane), I was without electricity for six days-although I was nowhere near as eloquent in expressing my frustration. As always, your talent amazes me.

Hey, cool poem. I especially like the baggage part. I think a lot of people are carrying around too much emotional baggage - I know I am. I'm not sure if that's what you meant, but that's what I got out of it. Anyways, good job.

Keep writing

Soon my favorite story list will exist with only your poems on it.

The last stanza is my favorite.

You always go away, and come back with new tricks. New ways of fitting the words together, new ways to make things sound and look and seem. You are my poetic idle. And I love you.
