one thing I can say about carter - he's always fair-minded when he likes something. its all about the poetry with him. carter pretty much echoed my sentiments on palmer's poem. with some cutting, a very nice poem; not maudlin or preachy like a lot of tribute poems. I wouldn't even call it 'tribute poem' really but more like an examination. my advice on the last stanza can be taken or ignored. no biggie. the poem is fine like it is. I mean, hell, the wasteland could be cut too; convex mirror could be cut, etc, etc.

Lamont, one of your better efforts. It slips off into ugly Lamontisms (the bowels of nowhere, bullets that divide us) but for the most part retains its dignity and avoids the sappiness inherent in the subject matter. There are enough capable lines here that if you did some serious pruning, you'd end with up with a nice poem.Replies for this message:

Thanks Rizzo. Ignore the morons here. If I listened to 'people' like them, I'd never have published a single poem. Its nice that you got to see Maya in person. -LP

dude, lob off that last stanza which to me doesn't seem to fit. there's your poem, first and second stanzas. it flows. just sayin. nice tribute and no sap.
