'? ' Or 'An AttackOf Cartesian Doubt'

Tap tap tap.
Click click.
Another spelling mistake.
Summon spell checker.
Change it around.
Who cares if it doesn’t lift itself off the ground.

Malicious demon.
Puppet on a string.
Wave an arm.
Cloaks and hats-
People inside?
Perhaps just a disguise.

Music hums.
Dum dum.
It goes on.
Just a Matrix trick?
Can I really hear a click?
Could be one hell of a big trick.

    Once again, one of your poems has struck a chord with me. The cover of a chapbook I wrote contains a peom I have not posted here. Since poemhunter's software is set at left margin default, it does not lend itself to concrete poetry where letter and and word placement on the page is of importance for visual impact and carrying and reinforceing the content of the poem.
    Here's the best I can do with the margin default:
    'No room for
    dou
    bt
    No room for
    m
    e '
    The reader is left to figure out by themselves that if ther is room for doubt then ther is room for me. This is what your poem brought back to my mind. Thanks, Tom (Report) Reply

    An interesting piece of poetry, you may need a larger poem however to fully explore the ideas raised by doubt. Surprisingly I saw no real indication of solipsism from you; but I did enjoy the poem. (Report) Reply
