It's an (almost) anagram of poemless. Frank probably does the Times crossword. Sample clue:

5 across : Some slop got mixed for the barren bard. (8)

(No, he's not calling you a barren bard... And yes, I know, it's an anagram of poemloss. Or poomless. Whatever. Pretend not to notice.)

OK - my deepest apologies for the confusion.  I was rushing out the door and thought that poemless might be an anagram for something - and in my rush I didn't notice that it wasn't in fact an exact anagram of "some slop".  No insult intended.  The truth is much more prosaic.  i was sloppy in my writing. I blame the onset of dyslexia myself.  I didn't think that anyone who could write so eloquently about (ras)Putin could possibly be described as poemless.  

You are indeed a poet,
even if you do not know it.

Seriously, though, sorry for any confusion.
