Thanks B7L
Reassuring to find one of the 'old guard' still here, and generous of you to read and comment. I toyed with balancing the syllables '... and cries discretely', but decided against it. Your 5-7-5 is better than mine, if balanced they must be.

An intriguing piece. I admire any writer by the way, who attempts such structured poetry. It's not at all easy, yet this is written so well.....Bravo!

Thanks Colin, Williamhill

implication being
that there was a time he did none of these things, when he didn't wear dark glasses, attending readings or cry discreetly... he does now though, so, so much for early promise... I like that, how title dovetails with body, promise verses disappointment. not necessarily ‘cause promise was not fulfilled, but possibly ‘cause it was… I am doing my usual and over-reading again…

glad you came back, and sorry I missed you…

oh aye, and I don’t believe poets should do anything discreetly.
