    if you could decipher the English language H. you would see the link between 'pillow' and 'ennui'...'ennui' means 'boredom'...sleep, boredom...do you get the theme? ...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... can I break it down any more?

    I think it is a very fitting extract, K.

    I have made no 'threats' against you in my entire tenure on this site...even before 'Mark Fry'. the Berlin faculty you teach in takes 16 year olds. that makes it no more than a glorified college. who are you trying to impress?

    Misunderstood again. Well now. I said teaches at a community college, knocks McKuen and that it is a bit rich. Sorry, nothing wrong with that.
    Incidentally, a community college exists in America and hardly anywhere else. Enlightened old world countries like Germany, France, Switzerland (shall I go on) do not accept credits from community colleges even as High School credits (shall we say Secondary School) .
    But, for the local market it probably is useful. I had a look the other day at the Nobel Prizes over the decades and it was very interesting.
    But we really ought to dropp the subject, it is getting late at my end.
    Allan where are you?
    Best wishes

    this forum has been in the best shape it has ever been...and then you re-entered it with your cringe-inducing solipsism, solipsism, solipsism. l

    nothing to re-read. you have accused me of making 'death-threats', which I clearly did not. I repeat, you are a disgrace.

    in your much enjoyed absence, everybody HAS been discussing poetry. you and Allan have NEVER used this forum to discuss poetry! Are Robert O J or Michael Sheperd incapable of discussing poetry? Michael is a professional critic...who the hell are you?

    But, dear members of this exclusive club, I can see that my presence is stirring up feelings of unwelcome, fuelled by whatever.
    So I bid you good night but must say that I am of a mind tonight to stay here on this website. Baxter said it, the comment about the legs.
    And I hope you people do not yield to the temptation to utter silly death threats or profanities, it is not becoming.
    Peace is the order of the day and this is a poetry site.
    Best wishes to all and may your talent grow.

    Fry, I will stoop to answer your question. If poetry could be discussed on this forum it would be wonderful. For that to happen you have to start with intelligent people who have at least a basic knowledge of the subject. As Allan Saywell had pointed out some time ago, none of the frequent users fit this description.
    Pretending to know about and/or understand the poetry of real poets is reminiscent of someone who teaches the subject at a community college (give me a break) and knocks Rod McKuen. That's rich.
    Yes, I would welcome it if the forum could be used for serious discussion of poetry.
    If we could get Lare Austin, Linda Preston, Sylvia Spencer, Erwin Baxter, Allan Saywell, Christine McGee, Gypsy Scarborough, Sandra Osborne, Janice Pickett and about another 5 - 10 real poets to meet here.
    There is no point in discussing the properties of a chemical with a bellydancer.
    Well, one can hope for times to change.
    Best wishes to all.

    I am saying it again that we have troublemakers on this website that make it miserable for all others.
    These individuals would have been removed from any other poetrysite, perhaps they have been.
    We can only hope that sanity will prevail in the end.
    There are only a few, so let the rest of us be optimists.
