    I have posted a 'Home' poem today too. It is a haiku.

    I got a poetry book by Rod McKuen today- they had like 12 used books of his at the local bookshop- I guess he was very popular in the 60s and 70s. I can't help thinking he's not all that great, yet so much better than me. His word usage is very precise and effective- very short poetry which comes off as simplistic, but really isn't so- maybe i like him more than i think- not much else in poetry at the local bookshop.

      RC, I like your poetry. I was surprised to see the name Rod McKuen. He is one of my favorite chansonniers and song writers. I have a 2 record (LP) set -Rod McKuen at Carnegie Hall - April 29,1969. ... more

    Sherrie- as always, thanks so much for the kind words :) sorry i couldn't tell you by mail, but you have that blocked- for good reason I'm sure. The little droogies are getting into every nook and cranny these days- I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain, what a wonderful feeling I'm going insane

    another 2: 47 am morning for me roasting marshmellows around the flames of the once great city that use to be Poem Hunter, now a pile of burning rubble and ash full of sad memories and crazed ax-men. I pat my uzi gently on it's glistening, pregnant side, and pop another gewy mellow into my ever ready mouth.

    Familiarity with Freud's concept of the defence mechanism known as 'Neurotic Projection' is such a boon reading this forum.. Sx
