    Oh Dawn Fuzan! In all this world there are so few I would hope to talk to moreso than this beautiful being, May Swenson... Alas, I must wait for the stars to part for my soul to reach her... And I'm saving a very particular smile for that very day..... This incredibly lovely confessional poetry just ripped through me.... (Report)Reply

    To read with it is good. But real meaning is beyond ordinary reader and a little tough it is felt. (Report)Reply
