  1. Thanks for the heads up. Nary a word passes from my lips on this. You can find me on blogger as well – 4 blogs here.

    thanks for the poems and works

  2. This excellent, punchy with a whiff of mystery. That last stanza is a particularly fitting finale.

    The only line I would rework is blankly staring, not only because a ‘blank stare’ as such is a received phrase, but also because – to my mind – exactly this is the phrase and image the poem hinges on. The more eye-catching the image therefore, the stronger the poem. But other than that, great stuff.

  3. “the heart moves
    as it will.
    all gentlemen know.”

    I don’t have any praise or words that are worth much, but I *really* like these lines.
