Contemporary Poetry: I'll go period piece occasionally. A stretching: What would Eleanor D'Aquitaine do? Opens selection range. What would Kwame Nkrumah do Or Malcolm? . ...a

Just saw this comment in the: Just saw this comment in the actifity list, so I wanted to come right over to read the poem.  And yes, I agree with what you said, that this poem presents some of her finest imagery.  But, her greatness is so vast across her poetic cosmos, that, at least for me as a reader, I have difficulty in determine a favorite.  Choosing a favorite poem among Patricia's colection is like favoring one particular star over another; the star field is too vast and too beautiful for that, and so is her poem field.  Her poetry is the closest to astronomy and cosmology that I have ever seen in any poet (and, as a reader, I place her with Stevens, Eliot, and Vergil).  We, and pospoems, are very fortunate---not only to have her among us, but to be able to watch her greatness resonate throughout all of her poems.

Thank you for commenting.  I: Thank you for commenting.  I am sorry to hear about Spot's accident.  As for the dark humor---it was not a part of the intention behind the poem, which was simply to be a brief elegy for a pet that did not survive an accidental encounter with an automobile.

Fascinating and Fantastic: I love this. For one, it's superbly written. From the mood contrast, to the timing and pace, as well as it's mere cleverness - it's without flaw, I feel. I especially appreciate the signature hook and it's precision timing, which to me behaves very much like that of lyrical music - my area of effort.   Secondly, it reminds me of two different people in my life, and having spent time at one point or another at either of their homes and co-experienced mornings similiar in sentiment to that which you portray, I feel relation. I felt transported throughout. I appreciate that.

That was more intense than I: That was more intense than I anticipated, despite the title's warning of a "shocking demise".   Perhaps poetry has taken a turn for the shallower and the more narcissistic, as has much else in society. Though perhaps it is just that either (a) when we look back at the poetry of the ancients, we are only seeing the best, which would survive many generations or (b)we are witnessing the downside to a modern world where access to writing is greater, and there are less requirements to "pen" a poem. Of course, the latter would come with the caveat that whether this is actually a downside is interpretive, because even "bad" poetry may be worth something, and if nothing else may be worth more than a person not having written at all.

Me too:   i had a beagle named spot once, and he became a three-leggèd amputee because he got out and a bus ran him right over. Question, is this poem intended to contain a dark humor? the sudden way the slant rhyme palates induces such an appearance.

Very beautiful words.   A: Very beautiful words.   A question for you, that your writing here brought out of me: Do you suppose that our ability to "hope and dream" has benefited or been maleffected by the knowledge we've successfully passed down through the generations?

His cockiness makes me worry: His cockiness makes me worry that he definitely has more tricks up his sleeve, and of course, anything is possible with that human wrecking ball, especially now that he's cornered. As for him leaving the country: we should be so lucky. I pray we are.

Just Say Yes: Sometimes. Depending on the question, no might be good. Do what your resources and strength can sustain. The light comes after study and work and perseverence. :D ...a .
