    The new Nobel Prize winner has only 6 poems on poemhunter. So here's another one.


    Before They Fall

    Before they fall
    The obese stars
    Dumb stones dumb lumps of light

    Before they gasp before they

    Before they gasp
    And spit out their last blood

    Before they dropp before they

    Before they drop
    In spikes of frozen fire

    Before they choke before they

    Before they choke
    In a last heartburn of stunk light

    Let me say this

    -Harold Pinter

    It's a proud day for Brit Poetry today. Most of us didn't realise that Harold Pinter - new Nobel Laureate for his plays, and political statements perhaps -also wrote poetry. But overnight, there he is at 30 on the 500 poems list with his 'American Football' - which sets a new standard for laureated poets... and he's also there at 100 with a darkly humorous one which is a sidelight on the dialogue of his plays...he loves writing, and it shows.
    And Roger McGough has three poems up top, too; one of our four 'Liverpool Poets' with a touch of the Irish, sorta poetic Beatles.

      Yes, you should be proud. Harold Pinter is a real talent. Remember discussing him on the other forum on areound p.21.

    Forget Rutherford, I am back.
    Last night when writing a message to the Jewel of The Main I was telling her I would need to shut off the computer due to a tropical storm approaching. Minutes later lightning struck and destroyed my modem.
    I just got back on a little while ago after many hours of effort.
    Lesson learned.
    To those who missed me (aside from JC) your patience has paid off.
    Best wishes
