TIPS FOR WRITING GOOD FEEDBACK
The goal of providing feedback is;
1. to invite another reader into the world of beauty you have seen in a work
2. to provide a very brief summary of what you read.
3. to give your interpretation/perspective of what has been written.
4. to provide suggestions for improvement.
We encourage that your comment meets at least 2 of these goals.
The SLM team will evaluate the comments and select the winner of the book at the end of the month.
Note: Comment on the poems, book reviews, articles, interviews and guest posts.
I’m writing with black oil
In my eyes, blood between my lips
and pepper in my throat.
They didn’t come in the night,
They came at will, everyday,
dressed in random cassocks
With 72 pockets, heavy and patterned,
I see black guards everywhere.
You are standing in a room where a song is growing inside your belly, till it rests on your lips, till it fills the room like the aroma of mellowed love. You sway & the rhythm rushes you into the outstretched arms of the room, into God I mean. The wind slaps softly your hair & now you are dancing with God outside, under the mystic droplets of the rain. God is holding you really close like a gemstone, your firm breasts pressed against the expanse of his chest, their songs electrifying his celestial mind. You touch the hunger in his eyes—raw. Damn. God. Wants. You. Badly. This is the primal cry that tessellates nature’s balance, to want & be wanted is the reason you are now in the garden of bliss, God chasing you like someone would chase after the heartbeat of his dreams.
I wrote my pains—the ones I could
give names to—on a piece of paper
& folded them into a plane—of miseries.
I hurled a prayer into heavenly planes.
