No pain, no gain! Especially like "howling vowels."
Nice rhythm in these lines. **
The title ...
Yes those howling vowels*
Yes, 'howling vowels' + 'febrile edge'. I also like the sarcasm/self parody of the clunky rhyme.
So much encapsulated in so few words.
'Laughter through tears' (Chekhov)
Less is more. This proves it. *
Brevity is a punch you deliver up close.
Thank you Matt, Arturo, Erika, John, Reva, Gary, Kitty, Charlotte, and JLD.
Ha! LOL. Nicely, howlingly done, Bill.
