Poetry Blog of the Week - (18 October 2010) Thats Only Fair

Written by Larry Patterson

“I drink glasses of cold water.” A line directly quoted from Oilunderneath, and sits comfortably in every post on the site.

That’s Only Fair is not just another wordpress website. It hosts a large collection of expressive and visual poetry! To quote directly from the site, Richí, creator of the site, has “been writing poetry since I [Richí] was seven years old” and has been blogging since May of 2010. With a lean design, and posts readily available for our viewing pleasure, we are allowed a vast look at the world through the poet’s eyes, from journalistic posts to personal encounters; it is all in the mix.

Upon the discovery of this avid blogger, I couldn’t help but notice the visual effects in which his work was presented. Some post contained red text, and zig-zagged down the page, that specific post was titled Hibiscus, a conjuring of words, holding the reader’s attention and never letting go. The site often holds works detailing real life phenomena, the words are too real to be made up.

Oilunderneath presents a portion of himself in every post, letting the reader get to know him better through his work, helping to expand the short and simple about me page, “I drink glasses of cold water.” A simple excursion to the site and you will find yourself returning quite often!
