« Wednesdays with Denise (October 12, 2022): The Prose Poem | Main | LATER FLOWERS FOR THE BEES [by Mary Gilliland] »

October 12, 2022


A beautifully convoluted spiritual love poem. Quite a rarity in these usually profane times. Thanks, Michael.

Is there an objective correlative in this poem? Your tough stance may be an objective correlative? Sometimes I wonder if first person address isn't just another character (not the poet)in an objective correlative, or is this Personism, or am I just being obtuse, Michael? A formidable poem from a formidable dude.

A good poem. Michael Lally, I knew you then in New York City around St. Mark's in the Bowery, and now in our older years we live in SOMA. to remind you that I'm a poet and we knew each other back then in The City where I lived for 50 yrs. I also knew Peter and Ted and all of them then....Takes One to Know One....

left the house
