The fish curry that kills. Honoured to have yet another poem at Duane’s PoeTree! Thanks a lot Duane Vorhees.
Always great to be up at Duane’s Poe🌴
Always a great honour to be at the one and only Duane’s PoeTree. Do read the commentary by Duane Vorhees in the comments by clicking on the link. That is the most interesting part of it.

Order cannot laugh
They sat in neat lines
heads turned towards the left
sitting as they were put
that wriggled its bottom
twiddled its thumbs
rocked on its bum
and created a disarray
forcing the tidy ones
to rearrange themselves
around the mess
in a bid to hide
and the sore thumb
then out loud
and was still laughing
when they threw it out
and formed a new order.
An interview worth reading…and rereading.
Too many poets follow trends and write only stuff they think is modern or publishworthy but here is someone very comfortable with experimentation, with creating eminently readable poetry and poems that push our understanding of what poetry can be. Thanks so much Duane Vorhees for shining a light on one of the finest in our midst.
and I am mentioned in there!! Yay! 🙂
Someone Came Knocking at Duane’s PoeTree
Thanks Duane Vorhees. It was a pleasure having this discussion with you about all things poetical.
