A version of this poem appeared in Moria. Thanks, Bill Allegrezza.
Striking. I like the levels of language and form - what is and is not the case. The piece is a good fit for Moria. A fine poem, Bill. *
Great rhythmic echoes in this one.
I really liked the playfulness of form with the emotional weight of the words.
Clever play on words here.
This was highly amusing... that doesn't sound right. Hmmm. I got a kick out of this.
*, Bill. Such a delight to read. Your keen, unique humor here is so well expressed.
Wow. You got a draw. I lose most of the time. Fav.
I feel like this poem addresses a concern in the theory world, which is how to incorporate things that don't have words for them. I can see why Moria took this.*
Thanks, Sam, Gary, Matt, Alba, Susan, Steven, David, Jake, Mia, and Amanda, for reading and commenting!
Nice Oulipolian poem.
