"Thank you for the big evaluation of the ‘little’ piece. This is the fun of poetry that it turns such unsubtle expressions into the subtle ones, as if someone has just swapped the foam over the sea surface with the froth on coffee. You…"

"Quite an interesting little poem! I had to re-read it several times to catch some of the subtleties here... I love the line, "It is in its space, caught in its pace"... nicely done! "

Mr Chombee Reflects at the Pregnant Whistle

I don't do small things when I have center stage. My acts have snap that ordinary punks only hope for. The acts, though, I don't remember them. I don't mean for them to happen. That's why I'm naming this guy Edwin Chombee.People look at me like they expect something something from me, to begin with. Without the unknown appearances of my black-out alter ego, things are weird enough. I'll look somewhere and there's someone else, caught starting... at me? No... the person reacted to my look - they…See More

"HA! Now I can't help it... I had to see what was popular. Here are the top 100 songs according to Billboard for '99. You hit the nail on the head, for the most part. A few good tunes out there,  but mostly annoying BS. (Just like…"

"Being an avid newspaper junkie, I remember these stories...some better than others, what a flashback! Just don't do a music flashback from that year...there wasn't any worth hearing!`"

    How may it turn to Him?

    With the face, blotchy—black

    It’s him, it’s him who has the lack.

    The balls of tears are chained

    In the prison of his eyes’ chamber

    How may it let them free?

    It has the key, it has the key

    But has forgotten its use

    It cannot move and

    Its hands fluttering like a sparrow, in pain.

    It is in its space, caught in its pace

    But is like a plastic bag

    Flying—dimensionless

    Is baffled, drowned and…
