    I've been reading through your poetry, picking them at random to be read, and though I feel obliged to say that you have a fearful talent. I cannot escape this feeling that (at least in your writing) you're unable to get out of your own head.

  • POEM: I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (2/1/2010 9:24:00 AM)

    Y'know, a lot of Kevin Straw's comments on these poems are helpful-there seems to be a lot of knowledge of poetry and symbol floating around in the man's head. But dude... he gets way too hung up on his deep, burning hate for all things religion.

    I'm sorry for not addressing the subject of the poem, but I just read so many of his comments....

    Maybe he's just angry that T.S. Eliot became a Christian?

  • POEM: Conscience by Henry David Thoreau (11/21/2009 12:49:00 PM)

    I'm not going to defend this poem very seriously-Thoreau just wasn't that great of a poet-but damn, Kevin Straw. Throwin' Hitler out onto the table only three relevant comments in. THAT is impressive.

    And while I agree that the social conscience-the sense of what we may or may not do-is a result of existing within a somewhat organized society, I think what Mr. Thoreau here was trying to get at with that first line is that the conscience-the sense of what is beneficial and what is merely permissible-is instinct existing inside oneself from the moment of conception that is either defined or distorted within the household and scope of human experience.

    Or maybe I'm just projecting :)
