  1. I enjoyed how the subjects ran with/with and without of your plan, even if you thought you didn’t have one.
    Sometimes when we overthink things our brains become mush like “old frayed socks”.

  2. This is amazing work–I just happened to note you’d posted, and I wanted to see what might occur when it wasn’t to a picture prompt–good grief! I literally could not stop reading, or skip, or do any of those things we often do online because we have the attention spans of gnats–especially love the random yet totally perfect Poe stuck in the middle of this stream of consciousness masterpiece. Each line is complete in itself, yet leans on and leads to the next with an organic and natural yet always surprising rise and fall. Just brilliant, and made my morning.

  3. Well, what DON’T I love about this? One thing I love about your work, qbit, is that you are never one of those who keeps writing the same poem over and again. This is a kind of poem that I adore, Katy avante garde the door, baby. And The Bells!!!!!!! Yesssss.

    Now, about that horse. His name is T-T-T-Trigger. Of course.
