Red Dirt Unearthed

The Mad Poet by Michael Whelan


Shoe freak; fellow poet (and self-confessed blog thief) Red Dirt Girl has posted this enlightening advice entitled Thirty-two Statements About Writing Poetry by Marvin Bell

Statements 8, 10 & 19 are my favourites.

While I'm on the subject of poetry, please visit The Dread Letter Office where I have collected all the poems from The Far Queue - alphabetically and in one handy parchment bundle.

Blackwater first caught the light when four of it's 'contractors' were killed and dragged through the streets of Falluja; an event that sparked the most atrocious act of military revenge in recent history.

Ah Pisces,

You DO have a way with words (even as I light fingered have my way with yours!)

I would curtsy but being a shoe freak, I would tip over in my stilettos......so i will nod my head gracefully and gratefully for your kind and HONEST acknowledgment.

I do so LOVE the color red.....
