i really like your poetry it takes unexspected turns
This was such a great idea to embellish and expound upon. Many of us have made fleeting references and allusions to the subject you tackle as your central theme...piety, reality versus perceived reality, etc. However, none of us have worked from such a rich template as you have developed here. I haven't missed many in the series and I would cite 'If I Were God', 'Automobile Insurance', 'Bad Miracles...as a few of the best to date. Great biography page. There is something deliciously existential (Camus' notion of existentialism) about the pasquinades on offer here. Mistakenly, a lot of folks view these pieces as an attack on Christianity or God, losing sight of the fact that they function as attacks on peoples' interpretations of Christianity/ God as much as anything else. None of my comments are a shallow attempt to be nice to you because as you know, I have long considered you a weasel. As this series took flight (or 'ascended into the heavens') , I was envious that I didn't think of your idea first. Now, I keep thinking of lots of things I could do a series on like this but feel that you have left an indelible Poemhunter paw-print that I could not replicate. When your work on this theme is complete, I hope you will make an ebook available for download. Great fun, PoHo.
I'm running out of ways to tell you that you rock - please write something crap so I can change the bloody record! Hugs Anna xxx
