This New Place

This New Place by Robert McGonigal was last week’s Tuesday Poem.

As always there are other gems from Tuesday poets in the side bar including:

For My Daughter in her Fifteenth Year (for International Women’s Day) by Catherine Bateson.

Maginificence  by Mary McCallum.

Mule Heart by Jane Hirshfield. 

and Orchid Tierney who has 3 x Flashcards  asks what happens when cultural signs and processes become disturbed?

    Grays Elegy would have been one, if not the last poem I read.. Circa very late 1940’s

    Don’t talk about it… Fix it..

    Never ever been able to understand poetry.. Ce’s la vie..

    You don’t necessarily have to understand it, Adam, sometimes it’s enough to feel it (though don’t tell my English lecturers I said that).

    Nada.. Zip !!..

    That was life when i grew up..

    Exactly as i felt after going to a Rembrant Expo..
    Watched.. Looked .. Listened.. Long and hard..

    Said to the security guard as i left..

    ” I think that I have just seen the Kings clothes “.

    Again .. Nothing.. Just paintings.. Some can.. Some can not.

    Maybe it is “envy” on the admirers part.. Who knows..
