Oh well about the implications(and I'm on the computer about once every two weeks).

The first three lines of I_ ish so pretty. Ballroom spreading in the fullmoon's light. Yes. I am expanding the image by a little. Only a little(sarcasm drop).

Whatever the implications, your poems are still very pretty.

Very done. The piano motif is wonderful of course, because I love piano. And although I'm not particularly fond of slash, you're right, it's written to be very subjective. Personally I'd probably interpret it as the piano man's daughter projecting her own image onto the prodigy and aspiring to the love and popularity that she believes the other girl may passively receive. This is great, though. Wonderful images stated and abstract.

Okay, first of all - I get the impression of incest. Esp. first paragraph. After that I couldn't concentrate enough to really read your poem PP

What can I say? intepretation1

This absolutely knocks me out.

And I'm no longer thinking how badly I wanted that last lingering cigarette in my purse...

Oh! *sucks in breath*


This is brilliant. The images are wonderful, the choice of words. How the pianoman daughter seems like she has no identity and it is her father who does. The piano man, and his nameless daughter, her 'clean hotel bed' that contrast with her feelings and longings and how she's so vulnerable from it all.

My favourite bits, definitely:

"she will instead buy the girl

lemonade because she cannot

give anything but

onstage silence"

"why the piano man demanded a daughter from his wife,

she knows she is only a pentimento in front of which mothers exhale their own dead dreams,"

Death Fairy, you should really stop knocking people out like you're doing to me. It feels like I've been hit by a three tonne whale.
