Masterclass


Itís no use showing me poems about music;
Iím tone deaf.

Thereís nothing wrong with that one,
just needs more brilliance.

Yeah, youíve written a shocker there.

Having died you never completely come back.
I had a rehearsal for the big stage.

Great poem. And full of love.

*          Donít use tired images when you feel
            you are at a crucial point.

Donít crowd the idea. Have confidence
the point is made and

ask yourself
has this poem got hungry pockets?

—Paul Mitchell
