Eclectica accept two poems

Got an email from the Poetry Ed of Eclectica, accepting the two poems I sent a while back. I am writing a series of 'Merthyr Poems', and as I still have no idea why poems are poems, or why some lines make lines of poetry and other don't, I am pleased.

They will be published on Eclectica in October. Meanwhile, here is a sample of poetry from the current issue. Picked because I liked it.

Poem by Brent Fisk Here.

Great stuff, V... does that make you a poet now?

Really so pleased for you.

Thanks T and D

No D, I dont reckon you are a poet unless you have a book of poetry out with a non self-publishing outfit!

(mind you, your writing is just poetry anyway... so maybe its you who is the poet!)

V... breath taken away... words all caught up in each other by what you say, what you said... if you could see... me, melting into a shiny puddle...

Thanks
