    I love that old cat. Most nights
    he snuggles under the comforter,
    buzzing between me & my wife like a
    space heater I need to repair.

    ...curious, curiouser, these lines get me to wondering about a couple of things: Do you love the cat mostly because he comes between you and your wife? When you say he's like an old space heater you need to repair, are you refering to the distance created between you and your wife? Or am I thinking too much? (Report) Reply

    Humorously interesting poem, I like it.
    Don't think I'd want a cat after reading
    your description of cleaning a litter box
    though. Ugh!
    Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Funny! You're on my list. I used to have a cat. Made her go outside. A litter box is an abomination. I'll keep reading. (Report) Reply

    You don't say if you did cheat on your wives as you swiftly move on to cat litter! Perhaps you would like to take a look at my page - looking forward to your searing comments. Ha! ! (Report) Reply

    another mishmash? ? or is it all true, and, if so, DID you? ? and how about your answer for the ex? boy WOMEN are NOSEY! !
    since i've heard you can be quite critical of other poets, let me ask you this: is the SENTENCE starting with...... That new Italian movie.... really a sentence? AND do you care? i read, in a dictionary i think, not long ago, perhaps under the word AND, that there has been quite a difference of opinion regarding whether one should be allowed to start a sentence with AND. the members of the dictionary 'committee' were divided, but i believe the majority approved. hurray! what do you think poem hunter members?
    i love urinous clots.... i mean the use of the phrase, not the object. i mean it is almost dinner time and why am i even thinking of urinous clots.? by the way my computer's spellchecker indicates a problem with URINOUS, but who cares? the poem is very engaging. i like it. bri

    (i will add to my poemlist......although i believe i read something by the author in which he seemed to criticize another poem for being prose-by-any-other-name. this also seems like prose, as do many of my poems...... except that i use a lot of rhymes and at least TRY to make my poems look like poems...ya know? , as in stanzas of four (usually) lines separated by double spacing.

    mmmmmmmmmm...... so this is your modern poetry Mr.Carter?
    Pretty AWESOMMMMME.............
    You r right, one has to READ lots of BOOKS to phrase such stunninglines..........
    The Blank verse, Couplet, Romance etc seems a bit Zombie versification before this.....
    Keep penning Sir, you will find me a good reader of yours CLASSICS (Report) Reply

    Whenever she ask again, ask her to count the stars as if they are how many loves you have for her...then if she still asking, then said a trust must be here, as night and stars promised to live together....not the movie as a comparison because it only tales, and let just nature tells, because it happens everyday and true_SOul (Report) Reply
