Today's joys and a poem from the vaults


I am currently doing sort of alright. Working on some ideas at the moment: writing some epic poetry based on some heroes of the Iliad and working them into the modern day. Also, I am working on a play that I hope to put on at some point during the next year.


While you are waiting, two poems for you.

 The Study of the Effects of Emulsion Marks on a Civilised Automotive Driver:


Lines define the spaces between

The Impressive Poem You Read:

You’re not reading this poem,

You’re merely pretending to read it,

Whilst you think about the things on t.v.

Your body, food and other things.

Then you’ll tell your friends

How cultured you are.

Great! You made it to the end of the blog entry. I shall be awarding prizes soon for those who stick with me.

  1. “You’re not reading this poem” – and neither for that matter am I writing this post. I was certainly not entertained by “The Impressive Poem You Read”, and I certainly didn’t enjoy the simple way it flat-out, bare-faced denied that I was reading it. The bitter note at the end certainly didn’t leave me feeling a little cold, as if it was somewhat cheap, and I absolutely deny any allogations that I found the repetition of the word “things” a good device but not as satisfying as it might have been, for a reason that I could not put my finger on (were I to have fingers).

    Actually, now that I think about what I didn’t think, it could be the depersonalising effect of “things” after body and food” that I would have liked had I read it. And had you written it.

    Well, that wasn’t an odd post to not have written.

  2. You know, I think that’s the most impressive poem I didn’t read today. I’d like to not echo Timothy in his many non-statements, and further add that, while I don’t have any friends, if I did, I would most certainly not not not pretend to be cultured with them…
