    oohh the bath poem, forgot again. I'll get on it. I"ll do a Christmas version if I remember...



    Hill, didn't mean to spoil the surprise! Yours is the finest, most elegant minimalist poetry of the round. To steal some of the limelight if I may, I'm giving myself the Best Color Award



    Prince....may I?

    (sorry I had to sacrifice the opening repetition...)


    Lord knows how hard
    I tried— to square the
    circle, using the same
    amount of space as in
    your clever "orb" but,
    look: I came close but
    couldn’t do it. So, now
    shamefully, I concede.

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    Oh, but you did a better job than I did at creating a square, although I think it now lack the exact number of pixels as in your original.

    I didn't even notice that .
    Maybe they're just out to lunch. I'll do a roll call after 2pm.

    I just feel like posting an old mediocre poem...please trash away!




    dinner date


    1.

    when our eyes
    met for the first time
    they locked like the
    strongest deadbolt

    we went to a movie
    and left before
    it was over


    2.

    hair flows down
    your eyelids flutter
    my hand......almost touching
    instantly your lips part
    you hungry...


    3.

    we had the
    longest dinner
    ever


    4.

    your eyes queried:
    would there be seconds

    I glanced back:
    what does your gut say


    5.

    just as in an old movie
    I wrote on a matchbook
    then I left Room 1105
    the door locked itself behind me

    thanks so much zoo! I was lamenting just how transient relationship can be.

    I like the halting flow of these short poems - the lingering look, time slowed then speeded up. her number on a book of matches.....well done with the desired effect
