Bob's On 49th

Rating: 5.0
Lobster woman was there
At the bus stop just like before
I'll take the heat for speaking
Too late, for her to have heard
But can you really blame me
I tried my best not to slip, besides
What could she have said
That anyone needed to hear
Everyone stared as usual
Waiting for her to reach up
Pinch the fenders off the bus

I love this style of writing...it's full of real life and totally immerses the reader in your view of the world. Very, very good writing.

What a quirky (sorry Wendy, couldn't think of a better word) , comedy sketch from a great observer of life. This one reminds of an old Barry Humphreys Record in which Sandy Stone (his best character, in my humble opinion) recites words that catch his eye on the train journey from Flinders Street to Ringwood station. This one strikes me as something similar - a stream of conscious musing on snippets of larger than life characters seen and remembrances triggered. All delivered in a conversational and highly original style. Worth several reads. Wonderful poem. love, Allie xxxx

And I nearly died laughing here! ! Christ I don't know what to say or where to start! I'll stick with something reasonably safe - I think - and say that this is classic Tailor Bell: unpredictable, rich in unusual imagery, funny (often very) , cryptic in the most poetic fashion, and as always first rate entertainment. Loved it. jim
