A magnificent journey as i imagined the mouse's nasty hasty move catching my attention unyil i was thrown off board to realise the truth of encaptivating meaning and torturous understanding domain. I have no words to admire the most beautiful work. Into my favourite.

I say drop a mouse into a poem and watch him probe his way out, or walk inside the poem's room and feel the walls for a light switch. Great imagination. tony

I love this poem for your humour, you see the funny side of people trying their damndest to find more in a poet than, maybe, was ever intended.
