Thank you, Michael. Nolo contendere: Martin unexpectedly replied; I spent a few words politely demurring from his request with a feeble joke, with true reasons. The more recent poems (all written by one person who needs to think and feel more! and post less, much less) are doing well. As we know, I am the only show-off on the Sphere. Sadly, when I post a response, even grudgingly, I try to get as many billiard balls into as many pockets with one shot as possible, while smiling. Maybe I should post that limerick for criticism, but everyone would weep snot. PMs, they're OK. But think of the bubbling kitten nostrils all those great poems that my post -- this very post -- are drowning in harsh baby shampoo because I posted. Loved your critique of the Ex. Corpse threads, really; and Aaron's all caps reply. "Incidentally, I'd love to see" your most recent work. -- I don't know what this means exactly, but Cheers.

PS You are absolutely right about Martin's post being two weeks before my dredging. My mistake, I didn't think to look. I abase myself many times.

No worries, Allen and Michael. Allenís post made me think a bit more about my poem, which is always a good thing. Whether or not Iíll fiddle with it anymore, I canít say. But thanks for getting me to look at it again.

But, since I donít want to just keep treading water with this one poem (which I really havenít looked at till today), Iíll leave it alone for a while. As it is, I worked on new poems most of the day today, and feel happy about some of it.

PS - Allen, you are, indeed, a clever individual, and I enjoyed your last two posts.
