All my poems are spells he says

I’m radioactive enough I muse

You can always be more

Almost want to leave out the conversation, just go with the implication, but that's me. You do succinct well.

Hello Dr Con

Beautiful! precise, compact, a joy to read.

 

I love the metaphor;

You can always be more

An effective blend of metaphor and innuendo culminating in a brief but tasty thought. :icon_sunny: Benjamin

Thanks All! I have been caught up in my own infinite drama- and have not been writing or critiquing as much as I should/would... So apologies for my absence hope to catch up with y'all soon-

 

Many Thanks for the continued support!

Dr.Con, this was so nice short poem of yours. It surprised me. I am used on something else from you, but this one is not less beautiful than others. It's very well constructed, and it's nice to see how you handled it a big difference in your usual style.

Hi Doc, I tried to stay away, partly because I wanted this one to settle in, partly reluctant to overwrite No. 2 on No. 7 appreciation. But I have to say that this poem excites the kind of wonder and recurrent speculation that keeps me reading poetry. My only real difficulty is in localizing the he, she, and I of the piece, but that may just be part of how the poem means. Thanks for the experience.

Thanks Aleks & David for taking the time to embrace my momentary poetry;-)
