Re: ha ha, a major writing prize it be not and yet

I'm keen to add that when I do interfere with your post (you Americans quaintly call it "mail", I believe!!!), so when I have the mail of the species in my hands, I want you to know I respect your privacy quite a lot. I never reveal the entire substance of your correspondence to more than 5 others (...

Re: ha ha, a major writing prize it be not and yet

ummm, words I think ... that perhaps . . . . . you could use a new free dictionary to help you with word abbreviations. perhaps you could use use your 10% discount for that. I simply don't understand your post at all. Each morning I mug your postman, steam open your letters with my portable kettle ...

that nothing about you is 'free'. (you at least require a 10% discount)

Did you ask if you could keep the penguin book poster thing - you should!

there is no way you are going to reduce my dick by 10% I don't want random words to disappear.

Re: Howl - Allen Ginsberg

Howl is just superb. Have you ever seen Ginsberg in the film of the Chicago Seven Conspiracy trial, him testifying for the defense ? Antiwar activists were charged with “conspiracy to cross state lines to promote a riot.” The film is amazing as defendants are gagged and bound, the Judge is called a ...

Yay! Good job you Filthy Fish (there are so few people you can say that to) May your punny depraved tongue (or pen) take you far and win you many discount prizes. :D I'm a bit afraid to ask this but curiosity has got me, what is a cock-a-hoop?

Great points, Cate. And would love to see the corset drinking lol.

Love the two poems and their connection.
Love this side of you, Michael... which I too rarely see.

Re: PRESALE TO THE UK SHOWS

My mind is not put at rest at all. If Cohen himself was Jewish, or ever know Jewish people, then he would realize that we don't Russhi straight from the ending of the fast to some lightweight musical gaiety. I find the scheduling to be bordering on antisemitic. It carries a message "no Jews at my co...

Re: Leonard Cohen opera

Thank you Marcia. I know what you mean ... and you express it so well. And, yes, the "tremulous hesitation". Such a beautiful phrase. It's what I sometimes feel when posting a Cohen-infused poem here, too. Warm regards, and thanks indeed for your consideration concerning the sharing of your work. R...

Re: How were you first introduced to the words of Leonard Co

Hello, I’ve been enjoying this forum for the last month but I’m a little shy so it took me a while to post something myself. I’m wondering how people were first introduced to the words of Leonard Cohen. For me it was grade 10 English class. We were briefly studying Canadian poets, which for me was ...
