In Tribute to Mark B. Peterson

Liz Kover

Dear Poetry Soup Community -
Mark B. Peterson was a poet who used this forum to showcase his work. He was also like a second father to me. And I wanted to share with whomever followed him...that he passed away on September 2nd. I wrote something in his honor that I'll share on my own page here @ Poetry Soup. Please feel free to comment if Mark's poems touched you in some way. He was such an incredibly talented, humble, and lovely human being.

"First Session"

This time it's clear
he's no better than
you just because he
lives in the loft
like a throne room.

It's a funny
mess you're in,
living off other people
like a wet sack of meat.

You won't keep
long without help.

So help me understand
confusion around the
dinner table:
"So, what's new with you?"
"How're they treating you?"
"You still wasting your life?"

About 30 yrs ago someone i knew wrote this poem down. They passed away in Jan. 2020 at the age of 49. I wrote a copy of it down. I believe he wrote the poem but am not sure. Has anyone ever seen this poem before and if you have do you know who the Author is?
God is man

Man is God

One the soil

The other sod,

One the spark

The other flame,

Each from the other

They both came.

It's just incredibly cool written.
Oh butterfly why you abjured your wings,
Regressed to the cocoon womb's staid address?
I liked these lines very much, very deep thoughts.

How great it is written. I read and everything turns inside me from the pleasure and from the feelings that you conveyed in your text. You are a great fellow and I hope that you will delight us more often with your texts.

Yes, it is really very cool if a certain form of poetry was presented every week. That would be very cool learning curve for everyone on this site. As a person who very often experiments with form, this would be very useful to me as well.

High Critque Forum Post: "Dog Days of August"

Dog Days of August (Dennis Spilchuk)

When my friend has something to say,
He lets me know in his own way.
He wags his tail and pricks his ears,
And barks out loud for me to hear.

Sometimes he'll act ridiculous
And get downright cantankerous.
And tongue pants while looking around
Disgusted when I don't respond.

And then for fun I'll stare him down,
But he doesn't flinch, blink or hound.
He's the boss and calls the shots.
And when it's time to go, we hop.

Lucky and me were born in August.
During dog days that are hottest.
As the years rolled by, we grew older.
His face whitened, and I grew taller.
***

Note:
The month of August is named after Augustus Caesar, the first Roman emperor (63 BC-14 AD). August babies are considered lucky. In the Northern Hemisphere, the "Dog Days" of summer are usually very hot and humid, and last about forty days, from July 3 to August 11. They are so known since Roman times because Sirius (aka the "Dog Star") located int the constellation Canis Major ("The Great Dog"), rose at the same time.

Yes, this is really very interesting, thank you very much for sharing. But because of the security goal, I did not follow the link that you at least attached, so I would be very grateful to you if you could tell briefly what it is about.
