    These guys are realistic examples of what some of us really want to be, that is to be thoroughly proud and originally motivated about poetry. And that takes a genius like this guy. few lines enough to take a breath wide and away. (Report) Reply

    Who has not faced this situation? And what to do except accept one's unpreparedness and continue as before? I find this hilarious; so succinct and philisophical. (Report) Reply
