The Reporter

We leave the couch and we gargle and rinse
as we return to work we’ve neglected since
we buried the Pope and married the Prince.

More pressing matters await our attention
Like the Cardinals’ holy war of ascension
And the surly Regent’s water retention.

I like the way you treat poetry; a rare quality in today's times.

But for a poetess of your calibre, it should be easy to see that there is a discontinuity in this piece. Dont you think you should try to smoothen it a little in the middle?

I am saying this for the piece is otherwise attempting to connect the first and second trio. Otherwise, fair enough!

Just a thought!
