John Kay's last comments on poems and poets

    Sue- another powerful poem, but I immediately wanted to cut the last four lines of the first stanza. I begin to be noticed is so central that the lines that follow don't keep up with or expand the feeling enough, and when I extract them, I don't miss anything. I drift away from them and then come back to the strong visual, concrete I open my suitcase....white desses which I really latch onto. For me, the poem is haunted with what we lose for what we get out of love and life. Hey, I'm just ramblin' on about how the poem goes down in me. John

    Great poem Sue. Glad to see that you are writing and putting the pieces together so well. This is your poem and not mine, but if it were mine, I would add another line at the end, something to the effect of and never came back or and never returned. Also, the end, as is, reminds me of those huge James Wright lunges that I love in his poem and this one. I'll check out more of your poems later.

    Your poems seem to emerge out of clouds and then return into the clouds. You never let me down. Cloaked in Clouds. John
