    From a poet who is no.14 on 500 poet list, PH. Could make a much better selection for both, poet and reader’s sake. (Report)Reply

    Short and cute- no deep meaning here but not every poem or short story has to be heavily laden with deep philosophical nonsense- I mean- meaning (Report)Reply

    This poem is pointless and I find no point in trying to figure out the real meaning of a one stanza poem. (Report)Reply
