« Two Poems (by Mitch Sisskind) | Main | "On This Very Street in Belgrade" [by Charles Simic, born today] »

May 07, 2021


Serious and whimsical at the same time.

I totally relate to the poem and the chocolate. Maybe the chocolate is part of the dissonance?

This poem reminds me of an abbess who was not able to hold in abeyance her absolute ability to absolve attenuating predilections towards chocolate cravings which caused an abysmal tooth abscess.

And guilt is resolved at 70%+ dark chocolate.

I really like Joel W's comment and wonder whether he is quoting someone?

Thank you Jill Newnham for the compliment but no, i did not quote or reference anyone...i wrote my comment by myself sans outside source(s)...To this i stand in truth. Thanks again.

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
