PI said...

Very cutting edge Eryl:)

HoodChick said...

Wow, does she have anything about rubber spatula's? I don't know why those are my favorite kitchen utensil.

Eryl Shields said...

Scarlet ~ thank you darling, X

Pat ~ you're very sharp tonight, X

Hoodie ~ I'm rather partial to a rubber spatula myself, they're so soft and flexible, yet firm.

Kim Ayres said...

You prefer rubber - not a silicone woman then...

savannah said...

i need to organize the knife drawer now. xoxo

The World According To Me said...

Brilliant! I agree, what a lovely voice.

Eryl Shields said...

I'm not sure what silicone feels like, Kim, but I do like a bit of rubber.

Savannah ~ knife drawers are dangerous things, I used always to be slicing bits of my fingers off trying to find the knife of my choice in a drawer.

Worldie ~ Aw, thanks!

debra said...

I no longer keep knives in a drawer; it's a knife block for me (doesn't stop me from cutting myself, though).
as for spatulas, silicone is great for scraping. I am not poetic, though...

Conan Drumm said...

Excellent Eryl, and a few nice oblique references around the block for good measure.



That voice of yours is a great instrument.

Paul said...

I enjoyed that, Eryl. And I concur with the previous comments - you have a great voice. More please!

Jane Dearie said...

Great to have a chance to hear your piece again Eryl. Amazing result from the exercise set. Knife with atti-chewed?! Great the way the reading works on the podbean too. Lol, Jane xxx

Debra ~ I tend to cut lumps out of my fingernails, which means they rarely look elegant.

You make visual poetry.

Conan ~ I really wanted to sound like Ralf Fiennes in In Bruges, but it just wasn't going to happen. Thanks for the compliment though, instrument eh?

Paul ~ Thank you. I feel a weekly series coming on, probably not of my own work though.

I read The Secret Scripture, btw, have been meaning to come over and say, and I see exactly what you mean. It'll be a Hollywood blockbuster soon.

Jane ~ In a little while, once it has settled, I think I'll try and turn it into the poem it seems to want to be.

Podbean's great, though I wanted the white player and it wouldn't let me have it!
