"not really now not any more"* by Mandy Macdonald

Post by Lipinski »

Of course this poem was enjoyable, it also sounded good as I tried singing it, and not in the usual form of reading from the beginning to the end, but rather, from the end to to the beginning...

'must you be dead before i can love you?'

and finishing with

'it happens here.'

(Often a great poem has a completely different and 'better' meaning when read backwards)

Of course this is my opinion and i'm sticking with it.
