I've not been in the blog-o-sphere much of late. But I came to say thank you for your comment, and instead want to say thank you for your poem. Absolutely dead on beautiful and painful poem. Kinda hit me where I live, which is what poetry does.So thank you for both. I have trouble with the concept that anything I write inspires. Yeah. I do. Feh. That may be a good thing, though. Just know that your work inspires to, my friend.
*blush* Truly thankful for your comment and words!
I agree with Jeannette - your poetry is awesome man.
Thank you :-D
Ben, this poem makes me want to curse, but you have that good home town wholesomeness that leads one to mind his P's & Q's...very good poem friend, very good. I think beautiful is a better word for it.Wander
I always thought of myself as a dirty ole man as opposed to wholesome ;-)
lol Ben you make me laugh!
"I compared apples to oranges..."For some reason, I feel like the narrator was told not to do this, but was all, "Fuck you, I did it anyway."Once again, fantastic read.
Haha I like that!
But did you do it for her(or him?), or for you?Stopped by at JLS's suggestion. ~Mary
Aw now that's a question the reader must answer for them self ;-)
I laughed out at the comparing apples to oranges, big economics no-no, as I'm sure you know. What an absolute delight!
I was never very good at econommics. But I passed!
Been there, babe. Good clean authentic poem.
Thanks, Shauna :)In contrast to the post just posted ;)
This is a good one, Ben! I read it a couple of times and enjoyed it more with each re-reading.
Thank you my fellow poet :)
You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
