Cia Frizzell

To A Certain Poetess

reading your self-aggrandizing scribblings
i realize that even though
your ego is the size of a planet
there might, just might, be somebody in there
here's hoping you find her some day

    Elvis Presley may have had you in mind, when recording 'Don't Be Cruel To A Heart That's True.' I do believe 'poetry is the window to the soul, ' regardless how obnoxious! That said, 'To A Certain Poetess' is absolutely brilliant.

    Like the touch of compassion in this acerbic critique. Truth penned with economy and a quiet brilliance. Excellent piece. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Although it's been a few hectic days, now in the past...I do believe there's a tad of good in everyone. Maybe just a sliver in some, but it's there. Galaxy-huge egos...now that's a whole different problem. All-in-all? You're certainly right on this one. Big, lovely written, truth. Good! xxElysabeth

    Nice one.

    You narrowed it down
    but not enough!
    In this sea of poets,
    plenty fit this bill

    That would assume she is not too preoccupied with the outside, to bother looking in! Nice work Cia.

    I love the way Cia get's her point accross in a wonderfully powerful, subtle way. It speaks volumes Cia, as do all of your poems. Who says you need afour page poems to get your point accross? ! Ashley

    Is this a giant gas planet perchance? A generous thought at heart in a very disciplined package! ! What was it that Connor McLeod of the Clan McLeod, of Glenfinnan born in 1514 approximately, famously said, several times? You help keep it spinning Cia. This kind of stuff brings PH to life. Thanks, jim.
