Michael Philips's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Poet Laureate In China by Charles WOO (9/17/2008 4:29:00 AM)

    This isn't really a poem, is it? It's simply monotone and unqualified praise for some other poet.

  • POEM: I'll Not Forget You, Augustin Gasrel by Junepaulette GasrelTibbetts (9/17/2008 4:26:00 AM)

    A haunting poem, and yet oddly impersonal. We learn nothing about Augustin except his preferred nickname.

  • POEM: Social Phobic by Somebody Insignificant (3/17/2008 10:08:00 AM)

    Wow, this is pretty intense. It reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon of a man holding a drink and entering a room full of people at a reception. In the thought bubble over his head he's thinking, 'Yikes! People! ' Like that cartoon, your poem strikes me as being so serious that it's almost funny. Like any illness or condition, I know social phobia isn't funny, but when presented in a poem there's a certain lightness to it that almost becomes humorous.
