    Sunday Mourning: Yes, I can vibrate to that. One can enter such intensity in such few words...I wish you could read Spanish. Some of my best poems about loneliness are written in Spanish yet they offer a happy viewpoint about being alone. If you like yourself, loneliness becomes a friend.

    Personnally I like the simplicity, the first flow of either poem or prose. Maybe it is not very proffessional, but I can feel when a kitterary creation has been worked on and then I loose interest. For me, a message should be the inspiration and an intense feeling about it carried in the poem. It would not occur to me to try and correct a poem and if I give an opinion about it, it would only be what feelings it awoke and to what degree of intensity. Your poem Divorce answers to my likings and I was very moved upon reading it. It is very alive, spontaneous and contains both message and diversity of intense feelings. Thanks.

The things she'd say,
and the things she'd do,
all convinced me,
more and more,
that I was just
a bit saner than she.

I could never explain,
to myself or to others,
why I loved her so.
Until, one day,
I happened to glimpse
a reflection of myself.

And the look in my eyes
suddenly made me clearly see
why this crazy ...
