« Your Book Here [by Jake Adam York] | Main | The Dog Ate My Homework (by Stacey Harwood) »

July 18, 2011


You don't mess with LL.

Laura's doing great things at T.S. Poetry, and I'm honored to know her and jam with her on our Twitter poetry parties.

James, thank you for the challenge. It was worth a morning on the porch, with tea... and your six mischievous words. :)

Oh, that's delightful. Hooray for the sestina, my favorite poetic form!

Hey, this is fun!

And for anyone who is interested in more of the story, there is more :)—or-how-one-poet-teases-another/


The envoi (triplet) at the end of "Proposal" is lovely. Say, Stacey, when I click on the link above to "see the sad attempt I made with my six words," I get to a nifty sestina attributed to Jim Cummins, "What Remains." So where do I get to see what you wrote? DL

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
