goofy stuff

Is this goofy enough. Seemed like a statement at the time. Time? sometime in the sixties. Hi weren't we?

Your name was frenquent mentioned
In the dark and crumbling hallways
And was painted by the children
On the fading yellow paper,
In pastel water colors,
And was echoed in the evening
Near the cobweb covered corners,
That comprise the maze of darkness
That creates a zone of loneness,
Oft alone and often silent.
Often lost and oft I wonder,
In my mind.

Terry-

More good stuff.

Only comment I have is that I would change 'mentioned' in L1 to whispered or muttered. I think it would blend better with the etherial quality of the rest of the piece. Waddaya think?


p.s.
Back in the '60s it was 'Goofy Shit', the intervening decades have softened your sensebilities.

The intervening decades have done a lot to me. My baby sister protested the Viet Nam war, I fought it. Rodeo left me knowing what "sore" means.
The name???? Her name was Molly, a pretty coleen from the ol' sod. She married some loser who became CEO of a fairly large auto parts firm.

Whispered would be much better. Thx

Terry-

My brother was killed in Tay Nihn on Thanksgiving day 1968. I went on to four years in submarines. "A whole nother world".


glad you liked 'whispers'

Nice poem, but I was thinking Washington for some reason, blame history last block!

Hey there Jack, have you been watching SUB week on History Television?

Of course I don't know if you get it where you are, as it is a Canadian channel, (even if it is American owned like everything else here).

Fascinating stuff.

Terry, um... strange poem, but interesting. I am more intrigued by your statement, that he married some loser who is a CEO. I am assuming that your definition of success and mine match to a degree.

Bruce-

A couple of things.

'Sub Week' is a hash and rehash of previously aired material, so of course I watched it, plus any other sub-related show/movie that pops up.


As to the loser issue, being a CEO and being a loser are not mutually exclusive. There are many wealthy, successful, skilled, beautiful losers out there. Look at politics!

Terry,

Liked the poem, sorry I missed it earlier. You wrote it in the sixties? Far out man. Thanks to Jack for the bump.

Hey, I'm in Oregon now, where there IS a very short I-405.
but I'm in La Grande on the east side. There ain't no 405 here, but there's a cowboy poetry gatherin' 'bout the 15th.

Terry, check out the "cowboy poetry" section of the website I highlighted on Beaker's poem.
