  • POEM: A No-Show Drive-In by s./j. goldner (7/5/2006 4:56:00 PM)

    I have just read your poem... a No-Show drive-in. The title is brilliant, I personaly think the poem a little under developed, that there is more room in it for your wonderful dry cutting manner, i love this line...have not quite turned the cusp to manhood, it has a brilliant beat to it, I have read a couple of others and think that you have great restraint when it comes to expressing emotion, there is an economy with words, a compression that adds a lot of impact, your art has an interior all of its own and your personal slants on life are keenly observed and painted with substance and depth.This one is still not as good as it could be though.

    This is a tough one, man oh man, I admire your courage in tackling this subject, even if its from the immagination, its a really hard theme to get right, I think personally speaking, it's a little too direct, the angle you have come from, ie the the life that could have been, its very original, but I find it a bit too melo dramatic(how could it not be) most of my noises are not poetry in the pure sense, they are mad kind of stories and so is this one, (though its brutaly sad) the last one I read is pure poetry but this one isnt, its quite something else. I think its going to bring up a lot of painful memories that gnarl at a lot of woman almost everyday. everyday, and in that sense it will have done its job, ie sparked an emotion, the heart the soul the brain into life. the last one was technically better though.christ I do go on a bit dont I? At least you will know that any feedback I give is honest and I am not into mutual masturbation or massaging of each others egos.will read another one now.see ya.where in london are you from, im on the old kent rd.

    THE FIRST POEM I HAVE READ FROM YOU AND ITS VERY IMPRESSIVE, THE THEME IS VERY THRESH, THE STYLE IS UNUSUAL AND THE TONE VERY ENGAGING.yOU HAVE THAT RARE GIFT OF RESTRAINT(AT FIRST I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO LOSE CONTROL OF THE POEM AND YOUR EXPRESSIONS OF EMOTION) BUT YOU MANAGED TO COMPRESS THE POEM INTO A TAUGHT WELL BALANCED PIECE.DO YOU GET HASSLED FOR THE WAY YOU DRESS? CHRIST I THOUGHT WE WERE WELL BEYOND SHOCK IN THIS DAY AND AGE, I THOUGHT THAT AFTER THE 60S 70S AND 80S THERE WAS NOTHING MORE TO BE VISUALY SHOCKED OFFENDED ABOUT.
