some here rainpour woes
libidos exposed

a few pray to preach
from lit-box
soliloquy prosed

pedestrian jaunts
not strolls of

three or two must shock
using pen
for titillation

voices which protest
peace by piece
find this place not swiss

these folks of passion
can receive
hurrahs to a hiss

filtering front page
scrolling for
fine gem to adore

an original
fresh..not read before

its posted reason
author writes for real

to be discovered
short of self-booked deal

so many posters
spattered art
that's just way it is

from old and young of
death and love
heart on paper lives

there is one atop
lit mountain
all give thanks to crowe

for without this gift
newfound friends
we might never know

a senryupsyched subversive enlightenment production

below the subliminal
deep within manipulation
that's where tr^th resides

... that logging on today, this was the first piece I chanced to read. *Grin*. (And *chuckle* too, for what if we're all making these same judgements about entirely different bodies of work? I love that idea. Wonder what this site's authorship/approval Venn diagram would look like - the imploding solar system from hell?)

Me, I tend to see Lit more as a rambling, incestuous drinks party with too much lukewarm wine and too few peanuts. Now: back to filtering that ever-evolving front page... is it too early to open the tequila, d'you think?

Bobby's 182

That about sums it up, Bobby.

I was so into thinking of which authors belonged with which stanzas (some overlap), that I only caught the rhymes the second time through.

Caitlin- Indeed. It's 5 somewhere. I'll have a Silver Patron. Salute.

John- Yes, dropped a few subliminals, as well. Much thanks.

Bobby's 13 14 times
Bobby, reporter at large, you have a knack for observation. I like the line about posters and spattered art. I always enjoy your word-play, but that particular duality was nice. Also drawn to the paper line. It's a bit of a theme for me lately!

A diligent piece with integrity, my friend.

( Posted by: GibsonGirl [Member] On: October 17, 2005 )

Thanks. Senryupsyched seemed way to go.

"spattered art" took bit of thought.

Was fun to write.

Lucie/ Lit, senryupsyched
Indeed, we LITians are an eclectic array, not unlike actual extended families in current era.

Many on shared little planet refer to this time as: "age of Kali,"- of quarrel and hypocrisy.

I've pondered leaving Lit several times. Arrived during tumultuous period..Have observed a few disheartening things. One, early on, even inspired a poem: "Wife Of The Doe-eyed Hunter."

"tercets."..I like that.

Your taking time here is greatly appreciated,

Vox Shirring
I once had a dream in which was a compound which could only be entered by tiptoeing through a mosque and then a Jewish temple. I remember I was angry because I lost my shoes in the mosque and had to wear someone else's tacky gold lame slippers. I'm not sure what Freud would make of it, or even if I understand the dream, at all, myself, but somehow it seems entirely fitting -- this pell-mell mellee built of voices is a tumultous ocean in which I am always finding myself, albeit momentarily, drifting in someone else's shoes.

I like Mobius' analogy and I like your poetic one, very much, Bobby -- your title is fantastic, by the way.

Psycholinguistic Stichings 182
Jennifer- Great dream..As former student of Psychology, am always aware of sleep stories.

Kind of took "senryupsyched," as chosen stlye/form, since arriving at Lit last December.
Have always been of less is more school. Soosifications and Kaceeisms read shortly after arrival, inspired me. Telling story in few words. Minimizing verbiage. Maximizing impact.

Glad you found title pleasing. Subliminals are of interest to me, as well as paralleled stories and levels.

Your taking time to comment here is greatly appreciated, as I find you one of respected VOICES at Lit.

Bobby and the Lit gang
Bobby, I too first started by matching out who belonged where. Then I kept rereading and then after reading comments I found it rhymes too! I had to stop thinking for a moment and go back and read it aloud and I found your rhythm, ahem... Great write, so happy I stumbled on to it.

Nae ;0) (Personally I think we are addicts and have to keep coming back for more.)

( Posted by: nae411 [Member] On: November 23, 2005 )

Renae- Fashionably late arrival, per usual. Glad you could stop. Cheers!

Have A Happy Tofurky!

Lucie, Lilia...Lit community
Lucie- Much thanks.

Lilia- Again, have no problem with your art. Never have. ...In above piece, my Lit tribute of sorts, you like many writers here, as part of combination of personas I suppose, make cameo..Just to set record straight. I truly wish you no ill. As said at comments elsewhere, keep plugs sparkin' and shiney side(s) up, whichever vehicle(s) utilized..Thought you'd get chuckle out of "Ricky on Ricky", recalling humor as being favored over serious by you...Appears I was wrong..Am sorry I reacted way I did at comments.

Lit- Am sorry for littering site with non-writing related words. I allowed myself to react to insults. I should not have allowed that to happen.

I feel lucky to have this place to visit. Thankful.

Sage and Rhyme stuffingg

This is the reason we all keep coming back! Like a tasty stew that is flavoured by the individual ingredients to perfect the flavour that imptoves with age. You can avoid the bits you don't suit your taste but appreciate that they are essential to the overal flavour.

My old school motto (Rutherford Grammar School) was, "Honni soit qui mal y pense." and I think this helps me to understand the ones who do not return......

"from old and young of
death and love
heart on paper lives"

...and the places inbetween

and I had forgotten that you could add the flavour of 'rhyme' to your cooking


"Honni soit qui mal y pense"

"to crowe"
It would appear I've been saying/thinking that for sometime. a broken record.

The thread is interesting, as it shows how things change, while remaining the same (as this is from five-plus years ago).

We can fall apart without going to pieces.

Pearls of Wisdom
Ah, contraire- there be no such thing as a "non-writing word..."

Everything we say, everything we write, everything we believe and hate or hold dear, is "writing-related."

Every bit of wisdom and nonsense on is writing related. Maybe not to you, but to someone all of these words are pearls of wisdom, and pertain to writing and poetry.

Embrace them with an open mind, and remember, someone once said "There is nothing new in the world, nothing."

It is true.

Context, Ron
Roger that.
I look forward to once again hearing her VOICE at Lit.

Were you here in 2005-06?. Look at line one of guidelines, above where you comment:
"All comments must be about the writng. Non-related comments will be deleted." This is the context my saying, "non-writing related." Context, Ron..It has its place.

( Posted by: Bobby7L [Member] On: January 31, 2011 )

Ron/ To clarify..
If poster A personally insults poster B, then poster B personally insults poster A, that would be, according to's comment guidelines, 'non-writing related.' I hope that makes the context clear.

Timely - glad I'm here
My apologies for reading so 'late in life'.
I'm glad you brought it to the fore for a fresh read. A wonderful offering. Some of us would do well to peruse at length, the wondrous archives that Lit has to offer. I am blessed to be here; I am blessed to have so many, so close.

I remain close.

I usually try to bring it back every spring, but no one was intereste the last time I tried...they have no idea of all the fun they missed.

Stay tuned!

At this point, I wonder how many Usernames lets you have?

( Posted by: veebdosa [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

Ron: One
You missed the upheaval several years ago, caused by a represented persona, when she employed no less than six usernames..using one to attack, one for misdirection, another to disinform, yet another to act nice, a couple to skew ratings..You get the picture.

So, what's your point here? What's your problem?

..and more importantly, Lit-wise, what did you think of my tribute?

( Posted by: Bobby7L [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

Oh, how do they know that there was not 6 people in the family, in the same house, each with their own mind? Sounds a little unAmerican to me.

I think writing poetry about a poetry website is a total waste and probably written by a glory seeker. Quite honestly, I have not even read it or any other that looks something like that. It is pointless.

Write something useful. Make it old and familiar, this is what people love, then generally reject the new and unfamiliar. Ask any commercial advitiser, people love cliche, they love the familiar. That is a fact.

( Posted by: veebdosa [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

Sorry Veeb... but...
I have refrained from commenting but I feel that I must way in at this point:

I'm sorry but that is a generalization that I cannot agree with. You are wrong, Sir. Also, you cannot determine what another writer chooses to write about- especially when it was written 5 years ago. Dude, come on....

It is narrow minded of you to think that people would not want to progress and expound on new ideas. They are doing it everyday; they are doing it here, at Lit.

The more and more you post your comments here at Lit. the more and more it becomes evident that your motives are not in line with the the spirit of Lit. And, I am pretty sure that I am not the only one who feel that way.

I know very little about you and frankly, I think that is the way it will stay. I wish it were different- I really do.

( Posted by: pablowilliams [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

She fessed up. IP's and areas/cities are now more closely monitored.

By reading many of your comments over the past several months, I had thought you often didn't even bother to read the pieces. Thanks for confirming that.

I have 303 pieces here, plus one waiting to be posted. One tribute to a wondrous place doesn't seem so terrible.

( Posted by: Bobby7L [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

"I think writing poetry about a poetry website is a total waste...."

that is a quote, of course of what I said. I stand firm on that, I still think it is pointless writing about other people writing poetry, or about "love for a poetry website."

That does not mean you have to think it. It just means I think it. EA Poe said that the best poetry must be about or for a beautiful girl. For him that worked. (Works for me, too) I write other stuff, too, but not about my "love for or any other website.) I read everything I comment on, sometimes, many times, two or three times.

But when it looks like oh i love lit org etc, etc I stop reading.

Quite frankly, I wish the people here who claim to have learned so much on Lit org would post some really good poetry reflecting this, because I just don't see it.

And apparently there are a couple who have only learned the rule book and nothing else on, and this is what they write more than anything else.

( Posted by: veebdosa [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

I think you are confusing my piece with one by Beatrice. She mentions "love" in her title and piece. I did not. Mine actually upset a few folks at the time. It's reportorial/observational in its representation, offered in 5/3/5 x 14 (senryupsyched) form..

Try my next piece, "At A Cafe With Melena Saviola"..I put it in line for posting this morning. Did you read, "To those impervious"? I posted it the day before yesterday.

I have often used Lit to experiment with form and style..fusing forms..etc
I don't see how that is a bad thing..

( Posted by: Bobby7L [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

The word "love"
I did employ the word "love" a reportorial sense..having nothing to do with "love" of site..or of/among its members.

I tell my Mom, Dad and my brothers that I love them. That's about it. I don't use the expression at Lit.

so many posters
spattered art
that's just way it is

from old and young of
death and love
heart on paper lives

That's half your problem
..right there. You comment on/at comment threads without even reading the writer's work. You admit it.

Think about that. Think about what you are saying to the entire Lit community.

( Posted by: Bobby7L [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

Abel knows/ Lucie shows

There's a longtime member, windchime (Lucie) in comment thread above..and mentioned within the thread. I noticed today, her well-respected VOICE is commenting again. She takes the time to read many pieces. She comments about the actual work. It seems simple, but it's something to note. She is also a poet I look forward to reading again.

( Posted by: Bobby7L [Member] On: February 1, 2011 )

The Meaning of Love!
and it is brought to my attention.Ron..I'm sorry you think I use LOVE in the wrong context. According to you, it should only be used when describing a beautiful woman.

I beg to differ with you...Love to me, is describing how my heart overflows with gratitude when we connect...whether it be a woman, a child or a field of wild flowers that capture my heart. And captured my heart when I first stumbled upon her, as she does to this day.

I love her nurturing ways when I pour out my heart to her and perhaps fracture a participle or the excessive use of an exclamation point (my bad!) in all my writings.

Wikipedia describes Love as: A person can be said to love an object, principle, or goal if they value it greatly and are deeply committed to it.

Enough Said!
