    Don't feel as if you stifled me.

    My pain over words spoken,
    not words written,
    is what prompted me to post such a short,
    silly diary.

    And still,
    you flatter me:

     I find your lines are fresher and more sparkling, more various and surprising, when you write about moments of living, than when you address big, scary issues.  

    It simply makes me feel so great
    that anyone feels
    that any of my lines are
    or surprising.

    I like my own work,
    at least some of it,
    but some of my favorite poetry
    is lines like that,
    someone describing my work
    in colorful terms.

    Thanks again.

    Bringing a child into the world at this point in history is a crime, the crime of child endangerment.
