Re: the epitaph

Hi Lotus, I found more to grapple onto in this poem than the other I commented on. I totally got what you were getting at in relation to the epitaph, and I really like your abstract/opaque still in general, though I wonder if just a slight twist in terms of making the language just a little less ob...

Re: before Life was Art

Hi again, Lotus, Like Not, I found the change in font at the end a bit confusing. Looking at the poem again, I find the title a bit pretentious, if I'm gonna be 100% honest, and I loved the phrases "sidewalk oligarchy" and "occult quote". More of the same would be great, and maybe "fashion statemen...

Re: before Life was Art

. Hi Lotus (and welcome back), a poetic joke? Virtually a one-liner. If so, I like it. If not, I still like it. :) But I don't understand why the last line is in the same font as the title (and your signature). You'll have your reasons, I'm sure, but they're eluding me. Should it be 'nor even' (L2)...

Re: Baby Steps

Trevor

for me regarding age
the child
is not necessarily a youngster

so many things occur in life
and we may find ourselves unexpectedly in such a similar situation at any age

i like that the poem allows me to interpret it
with that wide horizon of possibilities

What does the last lines have anything to do with the rest of the poem? You may need to remove that and add something else with it.

for me the last lines
paint a season other than
Summer or Winter

Re: the epitaph

Hi Lotus, I really like your style of poetry it is refreshing and unique. If I may offer some commentary, I would suggest to revisit the end of the poem. ”In some other country somewhere It could have been summer Or New Year’s Eve” The epitaph is so convoluted that it bores the listener to another ...
