The Lie/The Truth (My 1st Lune Forms)

 

The Lie

we share a fracture

exchange blows

and call our sex love

 

The Truth

assuring her that

our mutual friend was unblemished

fortune defiled us

 

The Lie is a Kelly Lune, and The Truth is a Collom Lune. Learn more about them here. Thanks to Heidi for introducing me to this new world.

  1. I just realized that my blog reader has not been showing me all the new blog posts (obviously since July). I have some exploring and reading to do.

    That said, I love your lunes!Such a cool contrast...you make me want to go write some.

  2. Sorry...and thank you very much for the link to my blog. I'm so happy that you like the form. Have you ever linked your and of your poems to dVerse? I think that they would love you there.

  3. If you're using Google Reader (like I was), Google is no longer supporting it. I've been experimenting with Flipboard and Feedly, but both leave me feeling a bit more disconnected... not at all like Google Reader. If you have better ways to manage blog feeds, I'd love to hear them.

    I've been meaning to link to dVerse and become more engrossed in poetic social-space, but work, sports, and life (read: self-doubt) often get in the way.

    So far, you're my only anchor to the new creative spirit I'm trying to cultivate. (I'm working on it, but... you know... sports!)

    No pressure or anything, but your creativity often helps to inspire my own. :)

  4. My blog roll is frustrating me, although I just read that Google is also maybe trying to phase out Google Friends Connect, which is how I follow most writing blogs. I haven't found a reader yet that has all of my favorites either.

    Unemployment had given me more free time and no responses to my applications are very motivating in producing something, so my blog gets more attention than I think it would have under different circumstances.

    As for the sports, I'm not a huge sports fan but I live in Tuscaloosa, so I understand the importance (Roll Tide!)

    I also get self-doubt. It's a pain in the ass. If it helps, I think you are a brilliant writer. You have a talent with capturing and conveying a feeling.

    My experience, so far, with the internet writing communities is that they are rather welcoming and it has been rare that I have had a comment that makes me think "what the hell?". At worst, I have gotten a comment that makes me think that they don't really understand what I meant, but I can live with that.

    Finally, your last sentence is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said (written) to me, thank you.
