The poetry dark yet not in a way that enhances the reader's enjoyment or appreciation. Weaving insanity bad sinews eating popcorn songs of the worms blushing animals and lots of squirrels. One poet talks of his wife and that is usually uplifting. Ignoring the table seasonings added.

The political posts have interesting points of view.
Pompous? Hope not. Observation.
A tired reader and writer. Where is my sinew and camera.
