|Paul I read most of your poetry and while I would love to comment on all of it I just can't. For one thing I can't pick just one poem as it has it's own thing I like about it(I swear I'm being serious here!) and two, there too many!
Medusa: interesting take on the evil woman with the snakes for hair. I like it very few take this view but those that do I generally like it better than others I've read.
Poor Sam-have you published this elsewhere? It looks very familiar to me...not plaguarized I assure you just that I swear I've seen it somewhere before.
Trianges & If I'd Know What I'd Know before etc. Tina-first off I love sentiment behind the Tina but please, no more of the cliched titles! That goes for everyone on here including me;) I think you ought to call this poem Tina in future revisions, it would intrigue the reader and well make it less cliched. I kind of skimmed triangles but the sentiment seemed similar. I'll have to read it again to see if I was right but it seems like an interesting idea.
Finally Welcome to the Voice and I hope to see more from you! Also this is my shameless plug here, feel free to check out any of my work if you so desire. If not then just disregard this part except for the welcome
It isn't the fame itself that makes you famous but what you do with that fame that does.
