Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

I've been haunting the forum for ten years now. This is my story. Back in the 70s, when I was a boy, my older sister had a penfriend that she was quite keen on. In those days people had penfriends in the same country and advertised in teen magazines. He had that classic hippy look. Droopy moustache ...

Apolide - For Gregg

On Carmel beach he saunters where turquoise meets the border, His arms outstretched His upturned palms Seek signals of a different order, Eyes the milky horizon line For signs of calmer water. His sullen self numb to the laughter of companions, neither one thing, the other or either, Frei nor Frum, ...

Re: Save Ulster From Sodomy

Yes Lizzie, I suspect you're right. Politicians can't be trusted to make rational judgements. And Cate your right, it's so ironic these sworn enemies are united in this. I come from a strongly protestant family and so it's deeply ironic to me that my granny would hate my support of Sinn Fein in this...

In the late 70s and early 80s Ulster Unionist leader Ian Paisley led the Save Ulster From Sodomy campaign, to prevent the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Northern Ireland. Recently the Northern Ireland Assembly voted against the Equal Marriage Bill. Ironically the Unionists were supported and...

The soundcheck a couple of hours ago. Leonard did Choices and I Can't Forget followed by a partial Alexandra Leaving from Sharon Robinson and If It Be Your Will from the Webb Sisters.

Tomorrow afternoon we will be picnicing on the walls of Lucca. (For those not familiar atop the wall is a giant park). Will clarify exact arrangements and re-post. Anyone is welcome. Come and meet us.

Re: Camp

Marcia ~ Thank you for your appraisal. It's very much appreciated. Sorry it's taken a while to reply. I don't tune in here every day. I will certainly look up the memoir you suggest as it sounds intriguing. Looking forward to Leonard in Lucca in a couple of days. With warm good wishes ~ Jon

Re: The Poem Fails

Hi Lizzie ~ it's an attempt to illuminate how observations of quantum physics produce a slippery version of the world. Effects are observed that imply rather than produce faithful representations of reality. And it compares this to the poetic process... how it produces sketches of what is meant but ...

The Poem Fails

The Poem Fails The poem fails It cannot render traction Or the queer zero, Rehearse location Or mine gravity. Panic & lapse Immune to weak forces Arise on threads of absence In mechanical waves, Muted by observation & uncertain rules In the chamber of bias. An adumbration transpires. Wanton longing...
