Gary Sullivan | White Like Me

Three new poems, first posted to the Flarflist, by yours truly, here.

Uh, erm... Are those in the background white, stuffed baby seals there lying on a shop shelf?

Anyways, I read the poems and as a writer myself busy writing a memoir and a series of poems myself, I guess I can be this honest critic and come forward and tell you that... These aren't poems.

They are dolls. Like teddy bears, but in the image of baby seals.

criticism is one thing (and taste another), but in what objective way do find gary's pieces not to meet the following definition, as per merriam webster: "writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm"
