  9. Very unusual , where are the naked men ?

    1. Kutamun, ha! But I didn't have naked women either. Actually, it was in light of my poem about not seeing a woman only by their body parts that I looked at the photos on your blog.

  10. Agreed , i think its not good to objectify each other , which in the age of pornification seems to me to be a form of violence directed mainly at women .... To be honest i follow my association stream which was Virginia , Ophelia , Climate Change , the absence of feeling , " Eyes Wide Shut " and yes i am a red blooded male which no doubt seeps through too ! .. I wont reject the darkness in myself either ...its a sometimes unruly horse which i must learn to ride well .....I would never seek to harm or offend any of the gentle souls at this cyber outpost , and i look forward to enjoying more of your work dear lady ....

    1. Kutamun, no offense taken. The pictures you chose showed the beauty of women's bodies. My poem is exploring the idea that sometimes women feel it's all that's seen.

      As for your blog, I hope you didn't take offense. I always appreciate how your photos compliment the original photo and your own complex inspiration drawn by it.

  12. Beautiful! I love the visual slow-down of words, forcing us to taste every one of them. :)

  22. Hi Theresa .. this is so clever - I loved following the poem down - I'm sure there's a name for that sort .. but I don't know it. Loved the thought of all being unfolded, being perfected as far as can be ... to be me ...

    Congratulations ... cheers Hilary

  24. I really enjoy concrete poetry and don't see it very often. Really amazing poem. The style was very fitting and had a huge impact. Bravo!
