Re: Keeping Count

It's a very nice poem, quite skillfully done. Some Hallmark elements perhaps but that is a sometimes a, er, hallmark of your writing. I do agree some paring down would benefit the piece along with a rewrite of the last line.

First class poeming. Wonderful flow and imagery thanks to the interweaving of original language. Is fair isle a play on words?

Re: The Art of Ghosting

Love the title. Strong writing, the narrative seems to escalate like a gentle trip of some kind. Nice layers and texture here, a really cool read.
