Misinterpreting the Gothic as Goth.....

The Read Write Poem prompt this week is 'the gothic' but I'll deliberately misinterpet that as goth. After a long break, we finally managed to get to a goth club last weekend (Nervenkreig), so I'm feeling in a goth type of mood - here are links to some of my goth poems on this blog:

Young Woman in Black
Silk Neon Gothic

Look what someone else wrote for me.....

from the infamous internet spoof anthology For Godot Issue 1


Our different paradise
More different than a matter
Supposing fear
A well
A hopeless thing
Strange as a bribe
Fit and unfit
Hospitable as opulence
Like a small bell
Patient as a gaze
Like a distant creature
To know an interview
A salubrious thing

Juliet Wilson

check whether you are one of the 3,000 poets in it without permission, with poetry you've never seen before attributed to you, read more at the Poetry Foundation website. There's a lot of interesting commentary on it too, as to whether it is some kind of elaborate social experiment. I think I'm choosing to laugh....

Dresden - a reconstructed city

Most of Dresden has been entirely rebuilt in its original style, after being bombed in the Second World War. The original stones were reused where possible, giving many of the buildings a patchwork appearance as the new stone doesn't match the colour of the old.
