Talking To The Ghosts.

Sorry. I am way behind as usual. Aus Lit seems intent on ignoring me. I'm not ignoring them though haha. Insert link to "Three Legged Dog" in Bolts Of Silk. Umm, what was I doing, oh that's right. I must get to speed poets one Sunday sober and prepared. And Graham liked this one in the blog. So here is a crack at it.

    Oh… my… goodness…. this is perfect. You have slowed down a little in this and the crescendos are fabulous! Bravo, Monsieur. I can almost relax about the silence in the skyperhaps after this. More please.

    I think that this is one of your most powerful and clever pieces yet, one of those pieces of which that the deeper nuances take more than one reading to fully register. You are making a terribly beautiful point about human nature and art, it’s heart-piercing and hits that third note that makes the difference between good and great. And hearing it with my ears is just as an important experience hearing it with my eyes, the sound of it just drives it all home. You have natural raw talent, Paul; that you can never get in a classroom or college, that’s for sure. I think one of the reasons I’ve continuously said that your voice just brings it all to life is because a trademark part of your art is how you play with syntax, and part of understanding your wordplay is to hear it, for me at least. Cheers.

    and typos galore from me tonight. I’ve butchered the radiant geometry of language :)

    Well, hell, that was pretty damn good Mr. Squires. I am against burning pianos though. Your vocal expression is reminiscent of the old radio plays of the forties.
