Their criticism, quite succinct. Poetry from the pen of

~The Poet’s Poet~

The reviewers, could not have been more hostile.

Enough he ranted, pulse leaping out of his body

Blood on the brink of boil

It was a serious piece, not a parody.

That poem you offered is unfortunately fetid

You present with this monograph

Which we expected to be lucid

Instead it disappointed paragraph after paragraph.

The subject in our opinion lacked vitality

It need not have been complex

Given more thought it could have been a poem of intensity

He woke from the dream screaming syntax, syntax.
