Thanks! I'm here and there. Mostly there, editing my full thesis draft, but I'll see you when the mission is less perilous, my friend.
Good luck with the draft and the conference, my friend.
..but there's this conference coming up next week. I'll be back!
I've done the draft!!!!!! Complete draft! AHAHAHHHHAAAAAAHHHHHAAHAHAHAH!!!!!!
Well, just had to release that...
Good. He lives!
Always enjoy the word-play of your work -- the dueling imagery of warmth and Frost. . . the textures (point and melt). . . .
I love the tautness of this, though I did wish, in the end, for a bit more of the speaker's experience of this.
Thanks for the comments guys! Oh, and yes, OrphanPip, thanks for letting me read Koch's parody again, it's a great poem too (I mean, like the original, not my poem). My one was just an experiment in lexical plagiarism and rephrasing.
a nice imaginative piece.
Looks like you had a lot of fun.
And thanks to O-P for posting Koch's parody.
Can't see this and pass up on posting Koch's parodies of the poem:
I chopped down the house that you had been saving to live in next summer.
I am sorry, but it was morning, and I had nothing to do
and its wooden beams were so inviting.
We laughed at the hollyhocks together
and then I sprayed them with lye.
Forgive me. I simply do not know what I am doing.
I gave away the money that you had been saving to live on for the next ten years.
The man who asked for it was shabby
and the firm March wind on the porch was so juicy and cold.
Last evening we went dancing and I broke your leg.
Forgive me. I was clumsy and
I wanted you here in the wards, where I am the doctor!
I like it!
Thanks PrinceMyshkin. This was just playing around with the words of the best fridge-poem ever. I don't think I removed or added any, which was quite hard to do at times.
To judge by this and the previous entry re the boy that Jack built, you're operating somewhere near the manic extreme of your personality - and providing us a lot of fun.
Hilarious! I assume the editor got fired.
owwwwch, that hurt :P.
yes, I know, I'll leave it as is.
leave table. It's more adventuresome.
Maybe I should have ended it in 'bed'.
Sounds like a fable.
