One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

The Tuesday Platform


Howl, from Howl's Moving Castle, paper doll created by my daughter

You who swallowed a falling star, o' heartless man,
your heart shall soon be mine. That can't be good for the table.

My poem came into being around the line that spoke to me and said "you're not big enough to be in this poem."

Marion, your family is soo talented. I love your daughter's paper doll, she's sooo cute!!
We are moving and I probably won't return comments good at all. We are sitting a booth at the local MacyD' s using the Internet. I'm using my Flirty Guy again, I love him too I found him in Europe three years ago.

I love your daughter's Howl, as a fan of both the novel and the movie

Hey Marian--also loved the Howl--I did not know it was a novel.

I wrote a super short poem Sunday, but am linking what is basically a draft and (I'm sorry) very long--today. If you won't want to read it, go to the short one! 'In the blink'==or NONE! Hope all well. k.
