Hi Daniel. Just a quick line to say thank you for the words on my poem, was glad to see you enjoyed it. I think it was one where things were all heightened just to the right level as far as getting that one across that day. A real fish if that makes sense, as far as what I wanted to catch, rather than angling as a process. Catches are rare enough nowadays. But I can't complain! Hope your well man:)
My skill set seems to switch back and forth like that because some poems were written by my teenage self and some are as recent as the last week.
My experiment was to see if I actually have honed my skill or continue to regurgitate the same angst-y nonsense of my adolescence.
I wrote 'One Step' when I was, maybe, 15.
'A Thousand Reflections' two/three weeks ago..
Have you watched the movie Paterson yet? It's on Amazon. Part of me thinks you'd really like it but then part of me thinks it might make you feel bummed. I don't know, that's kind of how I felt, but also it was like encountering poetry again for the first time. If you have a chance, maybe watch it.
I'm browsing your poems. I'm not very good at commenting anymore, but I'm going to work on leaving you some comments over time. I'm enjoying reading them, if that counts for anything.
