I enjoyed this. I could feel the meaning of the words-verbs especially- in the rhythm and pacing you created, Mark!
Thank you Diahann. I wanted a sense of physical presence and am glad you feel it worked.
I agree with Diahann. And the word “conspiratorial” doesn’t get used nearly often enough. 🙂
Well I am a bit of conspiracy theorist so it bounces about the brain Tony!
Excellent, Mark! I love poems that tell a story, and this one seems to hint at a very intriguing one.
Yes I agree Miranda – I know exactly what you mean by that.
A great ‘set-up’ stanza, and then a deep (no pun intended) second one to highlight what really amounts to all of our lives. Excellent!
A poseur or a lost soul? Sometimes I wonder if I am going to be ‘found out’ – there are times when I feel I do not know what I am doing but that others haven’t realised it yet!
And there in lies the big question…
Catchy phrase…”shredded paper for delving effect”. Still chuckling….
Thanks Jana! Your latest series has put me in a particularly noirish frame of mind…..
Hi Mark, just want to let you know your link on Gravatar doesn’t work, there is an “h” missing. http://en.gravatar.com/markrenney2 it says “pamplet”
Thanks for letting me know.
Wonderfully visual, a word drawing, mysterious beyond the borders but satisfying in its glimpse of metaphor…
A life most ordinary perhaps attempting to be extraordinary. Thanks so much, regards Mark.
