    That was brilliantly said Chuck...you have a way of economising on words but packing a great punch all the same.... (Report)Reply

    This is really clever, and made me notice yet again: that the sum of the total comments is inversely related to the root, squared, of the shortness of the piece..(smile) Hope that came out right as I am slightly dyslexic, lol. (Report)Reply

    Truth and love, a dangerous combination, try them if you dare...... ; -))))
    I have watched artists paint and often wondered how cleverly they mix the colours to the exact hue they desire and now having read your poem it makes me wonder how you managed to mix these words so cleverly too.

    So few words yet so excellent a poem.

    Ruthy: -)

    These words were written by Charles Audet,
    I like his poems though we've never met.

    I think this is a clever way.
    Of being creative, what do you say?

    Very nice to find and to read. Well done.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

    This is a very cleverly written poem, Chuck, and clearly displays a fine sense of humor. It is reminescent of the style of William Carlos Williams, and one of his ardent disciples, art miller of Newfoundland, who was also on the old poets.com, whom you may recall. Like yours in this poem, his style is terse and to the point, and not lacking a touch of humor either. It was a pleasure to read this superb poem. Carl. (Report)Reply

    WELL, the water pump AND a tire went on the car this time, so there goes PIM once again....begins to look as if I will never return...and I miss the word playing!

    Which, by the way, this is one of your best! !

    I like your lines and reminescence about the time I was there at poetry.com, putting to work the pieces of tiles together. It was fun indeed! ! arya (Report)Reply

    Well done. I for one think that a lot of graffiti is worth reading and beautiful to behold. We all have our creative ways and moments. Even our accidents can become works of art. (Report)Reply
