Re: Son of a Preacher Man

  Hi Eira, "Secret Love" is cliché, too - but that doesn't absolutely rule it out as a title - the text needs to bring newness to it. Consider epigraph in lieu of title: from Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice “The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose. An evil soul producing holy witness Is like a...

Re: Son of a Preacher Man

Hi Eira

Re the close:

the denomination is not needed

hawk eyes always watching her school-girl 
and the preacher’s son, two years her junior.

And then consider finding a different title, so that the identity, preacher's son, is saved for the finale.

Re: "no deal is real" (celebrating a golden anniversary)

Hi kenneth,

I lost my workshop response

In essence. I have suggested the finale as

Re: Last Game of the Season

Hi Bob, consider w/out the the unneeded phrase "a waste of time." Yes, I relate to your memoir poem. Ironically so in that I looked forward to the ball park & stadium for the music concerts, not the games. By analogy, the experience is familiar, through to the wonderful grand slam-finale 8) Michael ...

Re: Mating Flamingos

A joy to read this Sunday morning Personification is usually outmoded for contemporary poetry, yet your poem reads that it is not outlawed. I believe that is an extension of your mastery of the persona-poem. more discovery for reader if "flamingos" is not already stated in the title, which I'm sugge...
