Re: “Yes, Yes, Yes

Thanks to Bill O'Driscoll and Kayla Sargeson
for publishing this poem and sending the gift card. It was very kind. I enjoy the poems by other poets published in Chapter&Verse very much.

Re: “Capitalist Poem #1

A very well developed poem. The Capitalist thematic is very interesting because Doralee expresses it in a clear manner. I would like to read more poems like this.

Re: “Take

It appears the poem's first line has a typo? That is should read "Didn't" instead of "did't" ?

Re: “Early Television Icons Are Dying

One of the best poets in Pittsburgh. Widely published nationally and internationally. Should be more acclaimed. Has taught many poets gladly and shared his art in school settings. Great orator.

Re: “Blind Date

Chekov had a philosophy, that only necessary elements should be included in a play. If you were not going to use something, leave it out. This poem is spare but says so much. The three carrots are essential and amusing.

Re: “Blind Date

Chekov scholars can be tricky this way. "sometimes in life (as in Chekov) nothing happens" -- but delightful things in tribute to that void happen in this poem. 3 carrots? Wow.

Re: “THURSDAY NOVEMBER 22 2007

Mr. Zepp's kind demeanor shows in the humor of many of his poems. He pays keen attention to the incredulity of life and can state in a minimalist format. Pittsburgh is lucky to have him.

Re: “What We Tell Our Black Sons

Poetic dynamics are very clearly operative. Why endeavor to pass an edict upon Ms. Vasser's work as not being a poem?

Re: “At the Edge of Friendship

Re: “Drinking the Guava

The commenter has always liked Joan's poems which deal with memoir and her poems which relate her California years.

Re: “Tangent Line

" roll like a dog in an obscenely green lawn"... wonderful line.

Re: “Helmet Head

Sheila Carter-Jones is an excellent presenter of her poems as well as writer.

Re: “Touch, Post Slavery

Wilkinsburg is the breeding ground of excellent poets. W.D.Snodgrass lived there some of his younger years and James Deahl. Ms. Conley's poetic voice is very lyrical and extremely enthralling and individual.

Re: “On Being Asked for a Poem that Embodies

Mr. St. John narrative poems always relate stories of great worth and importance. Great poem. Varied levels of meaning.
