Thanks for comment on I Know You Love Me. Uh - it's supposed to be funny, satirical about urban environment & poke fun at the people confusing their emotional with their gadget lives (which I notice all the time and think is a dead hoot) (that means 'funny' in Australian) but I got three comments on various poems which show that some folk don't recognise irony or even sarcasm sometimes; which is a surprise to me because I live a sheltered sort of rural existence! Thanks for the heads-up & I will study this matter carefully.
Thanks for comment on Wizard's Moon: its very first ever comment from anybody! I thought readers might have a problem with exactly what you got a problem with, and I'm confused about whether to be totally unrepentant or to try and fix it. My conflict is that I love to make the puzzly & riddly bits; but when I read other folks' poems sometimes they drive me nuts without enough compensating entertainment! I wiil try to rewrite a bit, definitely just 4U, so a "second version" will appear soon. New Moon is the man-child whose dad looks to the Moon godess. "The one with me" is that mysterious feminine companion whom a man can have with him when he is alone ... I think you can figure it all out by puzzling over those verses, but also I know that is too much trouble for most reraders! That's a puzzle for me. Thanks for looking anyway, very much!
Thanks for comment on "Man hearing his horoscope". It looks as if you might have been interrupted halfway through writing the comment. But you clearly mentioned irony, which I'm curious about with this poem because it almost wrote itself & I'm not quite sure what it's about. Do you ever find you have some remarks to make without knowing exactly what they're about? Drives me nuts. But sometimes a reader can tell me!
Thanks for comment on "Midnight Cyclist" .. very helpful; the poems I post are all ones that I have trouble understanding myself & I'm curious whether there's any sense in them! The comments are gradually showing me something!
