Hello, I'm John Isbell. I'm new to this forum (and a bit excited) but not new to poetry, I have lots of it. Is it any good, you ask? And that I can't answer, really. I spent some years as a language professor in the US before retiring last year, which leaves me more time to work on my verse.
A friend encouraged me to come say hi at Prole Art Threat, so i thought I'd do just that.

Cheers,
John

Thank you, Phil! I'll go ahead and have a go at posting then. I have a piece I'm working on just now.

Cheers,
John

John! 🤩

I'm a bit excited too, as is Word-Bird (^v^), but we'll all try to control ourselves. Happy you're here and reunited with MacPhil, hooray. I'm just popping in during my lunchbreak, but I'll return later 🙂👍

Best wishes,
Fliss

Greetings, Fliss and Word-Bird!

And so, we meet again! Our paths are evidently fated to cross. I look forward to seeing you in a bit. :-)

Greetings, John! Yay! (^v^)

Yes, meeting again, why not. There's probably a poem in that; but for now, here's a drink 🍺

Cheers!

Hi Fliss,

I think there very likely is a poem in that!

By weird coincidence, I drank a beer yesterday for the first time in a couple of months - perhaps the one you sent my way?

Cheers,
John
