Barney Rooney's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: The Liar by Annette Aitken (8/26/2016 4:02:00 AM)

    Annette, not everything we think is worth saying, everything we say isn’t worth writing, everything we write isn’t worth posting. If this is some sort of pastiche about infidelity, well, we can take or leave its poetic merit as we find it, but if it having a kick at a real Mr F by writing up his name on the Poemhunter wall, I’d say that has nought to do with poetry. Approval can come cheap on poemhunter - don't take it at face value. Barney

  • POEM: Bonne Nuit by Noreen Carden (8/19/2016 1:23:00 PM)

    only the nocturnal..aye...and, I think, country people...nice

  • POEM: Senescence by Morgan Michaels (7/19/2016 9:25:00 AM)

    ‘Market less’ indeed but isn’t Value in the Market
    corrupted by the notion of work
    excluding all from worth who had the sense to shirk

    now, beyond the threshold of expectation,
    oh, the luxury of this languorous drift
    no tide to time nor tempest tame
    no manifest to manage nor surly crew
    or course to plot for most charts lack detail here
    except for committed travelers
    imagining a further passage
    in a box of chipboard and veneer

    the sheer pleasures of whiskey without ice
    fine rum rescued from contaminating coke
    joy without the heady swing
    where sad and happy meet to share a cry
    the option to raise the bar to ‘thrill’ still there
    with pharmaceutical stimuli.
