Thank you friends for leaving a note of encouragement. It is appreciated.
"... come from", Terry? 2006 has been a while, let me see ...Stanzas 1 and 2 have something to do with web pages, probably music
related pages from an old archive site I used to have, with which I had
been busy. Stanzas 3 and 4 have to do with my state of mind and the
state of the day. Stanza 5 is mainly about welding, which, though not
my specialty, was part of my job for many years. Stanzas 6 and 7 riff
off of ideas that spun out of stanza 5 & have to do with the actof thinking. My writes are often deconstructive rather than
constructive, like pulling a loose thread on a sweater. I don't
expect a reader to follow my intent, but hope the imagery and
juxtapositions will spark a creative association in the reader's
mind. At least I have been told as much by folks who seem to
enjoy reading what I write. Writing itself is relaxing for me.
It's like straightening a messy desk, although the results
admittedly look more like the stuff that winds up
in the trash can.Best,Neil

Neil, I enjoy the jumble. Poetic stress relief I utterly understand. I
lived a life that could only afford me 15 minutes at a time to give a
signal boost to my soul. The rest was all either bought and paid for by
my need to take care of those I loved in a place nicer than a cardboard
box under a bridge, (It is the USA, after all...) or given what zombie
me had left to suit the needs of others. There were many years where
poetry was the only piece of me that I still owned. I'm not so far
removed from that now. I am very grateful for all of you here, and I
enjoy all the imagery you throw at me.

goldenmyst to/of blueberry kitten (Curtis)I love your mind trip poems. You create magical mystery tours of the mind. Your poetic thought weaving makes for heady reading.
MY TAKE :So yes, Virginia, they do like "magical mystery tours of the mind."

Very
good. This started life as a lump of lines. Over the course of a few
days I whittled and fettled, shoved and coaxed, getting the lot to be as
non-threatening as possible.

Ghetto poetry snarls, but we can control the bite.

Ok,
Curtis BoPeep, Ace social registry reporter for The Daily Planet ... I
see through your subterfuge now. You were sublimating the advancing
imagery of Rorschach patterns being burned through the back of your
favorite paisley polo posing shirt (with the little green alligator on
the front) when you forgot to turn off the lemmings. I do that all the
time. Ciao. "Neil Ghetto poetry snarls", do I get to keep the whole
indigestible SNAFU? You have no idea how long it takes to get
certified in the specialty niches of street cred. Oh, and work on that
self esteem, half of all employable muses aren't even literate. B'lee
dat..

Ah, "Bikes of the Week", my favorite feature. Better than triple coupon
day at the grocery store. This week's scintillating quintet is
overwhelmed with awesome-sauce. 2 Loud's GT1000 is every inch the wonder
which the text promises. "Font used on the tank" ... does this staff
never sleep? The unsung hero behind the Lego® BMW R60/2 made an inspired
choice of model. Motor più Garage's bellicose liter bomb is quietly
threatening ... like a set of brass knuckles in a back pocket. The
Triumph Saint-Lô woods weapon has an unfair advantage over me ... it was
hijacked from my dreams. I would wrap some street meats around the rims
and leave everything else untouched. Having begun my criminal career on
a 1974 RD350, the MotoEssence purpose built tactical nuke has all the
right widgets, none of the wrong ones, and could no doubt get one
ticketed just for starting it. "Faucon almost finished on top" ... most
probably because the rider was trying to wrestle the front wheel down to
earth. Great group, BikeEXIF!
