Re: meet me downtown tonight, and wear that green sweater

Now I'm really embarassed! Thanks for pointing that out, John. My earlier statement about being meticulous probably doesn't hold much water now. :oops: I do appreciate the notes, and I'm glad you dig. It's nice to hear that a complete stranger understand what you're trying to say. You pretty much na...

Re: meet me downtown tonight, and where that green sweater

Thanks Geoffrey. I'm usually pretty meticulous about that. Actually, I'm pretty damn anal about that. But I suppose everyone slips, from time to time.

meet me downtown tonight, and wear that green sweater. the one that falls off the shoulders. you'll be late as usual, and I'll be drunk already, but, oh the shape of you when you walk through that door. i'll buy every drink, (i'll even pay for some of our sins) if just once, for old times' sake, you...

Re: This is my new poem

I like this a lot, Marisha. It's vey Zen. I don't know if that's what you were intending, but that's how I read it.

Time is the only constant...everything else is meaningless. That's what I took from this.

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Leonard on the Watchmen Soundtrack...

I can see where you’re coming from, David. Truth be told, I think Snyder was pretty successful in making a film that is almost impossible to make. I also understand what he was trying to do in the scene…I just felt it fell a little flat. One would think the song a perfect fit, given the fact that Co...

Re: Leonard on the Watchmen Soundtrack...

Yes, I agree with unkleevil. The end credits start out with some dreary, watered down tune by Blink Eye Blind...or Third 182...or some such nonsense, but the sequence eventually transforms into First We Take Manhattan . A far more appropriate usage compared to Hallelujah , used earlier in the sex sc...

Watchmen - Cohen usage

Has anyone else seen Watchmen? I am conflicted about the usage of Cohen's songs in the film. I won't give anything away, I just want to know if I'm alone in feeling that the coinciding scenes cheapened his work. It just didn't work for me.

Your thoughts?

Re: Had I known of things impermanent

This is lovely Violet, and I thank you for it.

My favorite:
Is it only in dreams
that I'd caressed your hair
with lavender?
It's like a poem within a poem. If I had a fortune cookie (or a Russian nesting doll), this is what I'd like to find written inside.

Re: do not say she is lovely

You are a bushel of peaches...the lot of you! Thank you for your comments and criticism. I never like to reveal too much about what I write because I feel it spoils it for the the reader. I can clarify a few things though... Regarding the "stumbling", I will admit it was a combination of booze and f...

Re: do not say she is lovely

Cate and Violet, Your kindness means everything to me. The more I got to know this community, the more I realized it didn't have enough poets (tee hee). But you've encouraged me to contribute...thank you. I wrote this early one morning on a train, so that I wouldn't forget the incredible evening bef...

do not say she is lovely

do not say she is lovely unless you have lain with her in such impossible tangles that you forget which limbs are hers and which are yours. and you cannot compare her to anything until you have seen her delicate face grow brighter and brighter with the approaching dawn. and, when you are stumbling ...

Re: Poetic Snippets From Songs

"Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon" - Sisters of Mercy

A seemingly simple little lyric, but for some reason, I've always found it quite moving. I remember, even in childhood, it stirred something in me. The imagery, or something. Can't really explain it.

Re: i'm new here...

Hi Cate, I appreciate the warm welcome and I'm glad you dig my li'l avatar ('tis a splendid word indeed, isn't it?). It's not my artwork, but a dear friend of mine's. It's also the cover of an album I recorded and I'm quite fond of the image. I won't inundate the community with countless poems, but ...

Re: i'm new here...

Perhaps a proper introduction is in order... Like all of you, I'm a fan of the man. I'm always hesitant to be a part of these communities because I find I struggle a bit in the contribution department. I'm trying to be more aware of that. I wear a few hats, but mostly I'm a singer/songwriter. I also...

Hi Woody,

I agree with Deelyn. This one is quite lovely. It makes me sweat a little...in a good way.
