I actually didn't mind Louise Gluck's reading -- she looks like she doesn't like talking to people though Smile

I hadn't thought of that. Maybe it's more built up contempt and less a problem with delivery.

I got the feeling, from her introduction, that she's had run-ins with audience members who can't handle homophones.

I understand. She is though a US citizen and the Supreme Court settled the homophone issue already. The audience simply needs to adjust to reality.

I always thought the high ho thing was code for drugs and prostitution.

Thanks for confirming.

Hysterical

Thank you, Jesus.

For some disturbing reason, I keep thinking of Winnie the Pooh.

Lol maybe its piglets unraveling thread? or I sound like Eeyore Big Grin "Somebody must have taken it," said Eeyore. "How Like Them," he added, after a long silence.

Guilty Gifts

https://soundcloud.com/razzerleaf/guilty-gifts

The wooden boards flexed like sleeping ribs
as a large wave spewed over a little café
soaking her favourite Sunday morning spot
to sip hot Mocha, close her eyes
and face the sun, inhale the sea-salt air
the way her mother had always done.

She wanted to feel small again,
still brave enough
to shout her name into the head wind,
to breath herself alive in the rising swell.

The pier was deserted as she stepped over
the danger sign that danced on its rusty chain.
Through the murk of stirred up sand
her raincoat demanded attention,
a slash of red bleeding across the grey.

Far off in the deep its mass was moving,
a vast sea cat timing its run for the neck,
each thudded step counted in the waves
as she ran towards the spray,
a surfer would have known what was coming.
The ocean smashed through the decking,
a sledge hammer on piano keys,
its mouth tight around her legs and chest
as it carried her deafeningly into muffled silence.

On a warm Sunday her usual spot was taken,
a man watching his son fishing on the rocks.
” I've got one” the boy shouted,
guiding his catch into a bucket.
He didn't notice the red shape shifting in the sand
surfacing only to fold across the rocks,
a small offering as the guilty tide
bowed with outstretched arms
and stepped away.

Bored and stuck in, in Ireland with the snow so thought I would do some recordings.

Morning Mice

https://soundcloud.com/razzerleaf/morning-mice

A warmth that helps you to unfurl
spreads us soft amongst our bedding.
Breath has caught the swaying stalks
to whisper dreams from distant fields.
A trace reveals a hungered look,
babbled under fresh melt brooks
that stroke your eyes to saucers.

A stretched out smile sets sail
on furled up crinkled leaves,
urgent through the rapids
as eddies tremble in the reeds.
Deep inside the riverbank
we twist entwined by tails,
and dance before the harvest
has time to lift our veils.

If your undies fer you've been smoking through em, don't peg em out
