    Max, thank you for commenting on my work. I have now been reading yours and find there is a lovely simplicity of statement in it - an enchanting mix of worldly and unworldly. I came to poetry late in life, that's why I think I'll be finishing early, rather than later! ! Regards, Gol

Is there a complete sentence
anywhere in vivo?
Maybe, but then only one!

Can anything be misspelled there? ...

Delmar Loop Revelation

He opened the apartment
door and I went in
and plunged
into an Ocean. My life
went floating by like scraps
of stuff on foam and waves,

how long I stayed. Back on the street,
