Even though your thoughts are

I really admire the way  last

Posted on Sat, 15 Feb 2020

I really admire the way  last words in the lines stand out, as with - wild, hurled, and the alliteration of wind and wild. I feel my throat opening like the sky as I read it, to make the long vowel sounds in my mind. Would be a great one to  hear...

I love your walking poems,

Posted on Thu, 30 Jan 2020

I like this one very much.

Posted on Mon, 27 Jan 2020

I like this one very much. Well, not like, because it is grim. Admire. The idea of earthworms being like memories in the tunnels of your mind and "uncoil of earthworms" is wonderful.
