    I really misinterpreted Hello Again, Stranger when I wrote my comments yesterday. Actually it was early Sunday morning and my brain wasn't fully functioning. But tonight both that poem and WALKING ALONG... make perfect
    sense; they're two chapters from an on-going narrative. I don't know why I made the assumption that the couple in the first poem were uncommitted, hesitant, not ready to surrender to each other. Now I see from the opening they are connected: We traveled together... braved the unknown. And their rapport is mysteriously confirmed a few lines later: We went/because we were called/you and I. Is that an inner calling, because I don't see an outside agent. I really like the passage about the note he puts under her pillow, because it is a gesture of love. Your character doesn't have to say I love you, which would be a cliché, because he just proved his love with a gesture. (I'm going to stop and send this, because the problem might be the length of my comments.)

Best Poem of Doyen Lingua

A Poem Is

emotion
condensed into a paste
smothered onto buttered toast
giving life a taste

leftovers
are kept inside a jar inside the fridge
taken out for soup and salad
but never out to binge

saved
just for celebrations
and wrapped with ribbon fare
not even philosophy deserves
this kind of special care

Running Paper

I saw my essay running away, with folded legs and pointed toes;
scurrying away from me,
to seek the unknown freedom from a writer’s hand.
I chased it long and hard, for my dreams and thoughts it had stolen.
But it stepped in a puddle, and lost its legs.
Laying down. Twitching in the breeze.
We both lost that day. Our dreams dissolved.

So in my dreary writer’s block, I mourn the loss of hope.
