Memory Foam

I was thinking about writing a poem about memory foam, but now there's this one in the world by Monty Reid at Juniper, so I don't need to. I like this one a lot.

Also, I have a broken foot. I am a prisoner of my home much of the time, and bored. I may post more often once again. Or not.

Vary the Line Poetry Collective Reviews Whiteout

I'm grateful to Vary the Line Poetry Collective for this thoughtful insightful review of Whiteout.

Here are a few excerpts:

"Goodfellow’s poems are full of text where every word carries weight, where the words used are so strong they make articles and pronouns pale next to them—until you realize there are barely any of that type of word in the poem."

"... shows off Goodfellow’s amazing ear for consonance and assonance whose presence uplifts the meaning of the lines rather than skewing them like the grammar of a sentence rearranged to provide an end word with the proper rhyme."

Thank you, Vary the Line Poetry Collective.
