all this shite
about love

one brown shoe

fourteen hundred
years

of indifference.

this is great. i really like these short ones, probably more than anything else that i've read by you.

you kick ass!

it's so fucking late here. I set aside time to write and have only written a Preamble/Author's note/Thank You's for this chapbook thingee.

I'm off.

I don't get this joke, but I like meter and mystery of the punchline.

I like the meter exended back to the rhyme, though I don't feel the boy with rickets image.
