Poetry Magnum Opus

Big, dramatic changes


Recommended Posts

Hello, PMO. This is Marti, or dcmarti1. It looks like my condo might FINALLY sell at the end of of September 2013.


After being away from Texas for 31 years, I have to move back for some family issues. 6 years in the Navy, and 25 years in the Washington DC metro area have completely changed me; so, too, has poetry. (Literature & politics, too.....but as the bartender in Irma La Douce said, "That's another story!")


I have SO enjoyed the two-way encouragment AND critique here. It has been very important.


I am sure I will eventually get back onto PMO.....once in Texas and set-up with a home office and Internet access. My life was so radically different during the decades of my 20s (Navy), 30s (Dupont in DC & Vegas briefly), and 40s (Petworth in DC). Next year I am 50 and it will not be where or what I expected. The compleat disillusionment I succumbed to at 48 with "security clearances" and the "military industrial complex" was good spiritually, bad financially. I am LUCKY, though, to have family, friends, a roof, and food.....Poetry can be a boon or a beast. Oh, and my roommate's kitty is a blessing as well!


I have to PUBLICLY thank tonyv and fdelano. They gave me GIFTS -- actual presents! I will never forget that.


Until later,




(aka Maude.....Maybe I will tell you all later. Maybe.)


PS If any of you join goodreads, here is a poetry group:
