Re: Random Sandwich, or, The Scavenger's Chocolate Wrapper by impert&ent 20-Nov-05/9:17 AM
A collage of snippets from the first lines of the last 13 poems to appear on Poemranker's RSS feed. Neither random nor contrived, this pick of the litter/litter-picker's approach to composition reflects the momentary ambience of poemranker.

Nice tone. I appreciate the subtle humor.

That's just what I was thinking.

Something a bit repetitive here, and title not evocative of the imagery
Re: Celui by half.italian 26-Aug-16/8:09 AM
Celui? Ce lui? Anyhow, nice evocation of a once in a lifetime fuck.

Poemranker you are still here
in spite of that lousy security exception
nearly two years after I last visited.

What is that about?
How do you manage?
Fucking ghost ship, wandering the highways,
playing sneak attack on the pilgrim tourists
Straddling the dusty road like some forlorn and has-been movie set
Cast off from the realities of TV and film production
Lonely ghost town ISO lonesome highway for romance and possible LTR.
Re: Days of Silence (1-196) by impert&ent 14-Jun-20/7:28 AM
Poemranker was silent between February 15, 2019 and March 13, 2020. We had nothing to say for 390 days. I have filled that gap with one-line poems to make 56 weekly stanzas. We are now whole again.

This is the first 28 weeks.

Re: Where are all the poets? by nentwined 11-Nov-20/7:04 PM
Likewise, this is a beauty. A cadence, a repetition, with or without rhyme. Good timing!

She's an icthyologist.
With a flick of the tale, she's off.

This is my audience. I'm not sure there's ever been another. I have looked. And wished.

So the silence tells a story.

A bit of a riddle, but knowable...
Re: Jerusalem the Golden by rabbi sammy schtupp 10-Feb-21/5:21 AM
I like blesting fish to pisces. As for the rest of it, well, as Groucho Marx said on so many occasions...
Re: Bats by Dovina 21-Jul-21/9:56 AM
Shear numbers; they're in for a haircut, a scalping.
Shearing flight, slicing the air.
Shearing numbers: as immortalised by Kerouac.

And as always he leaned his blind head on his pale hand, all ears opened like the ears of an elephant, listening to the American sounds and mastering them for his own English summer's-night use. Then they urged him to get up and play. He did. He played innumerable choruses with amazing chords that mounted higher and higher till the sweat splashed all over the piano and everybody listened in awe and fright. They led him off the stand after an hour. He went back to his dark corner, old God Shearing, and the boys said, 'There ain't nothin left after that.
