One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

I'm adding a bit of micropoetry... Your note made me giggle because one of the reasons why I write micropoetry is because I can do it on my phone, lol!

Love the comic. Must share it with my Piano Man and the Little Princess.

Thanks for hosting today, Sanaa. Your comic strip photo post today reminded me of my youth, of when I had to hide my comic books in the garage growing up. My mom didn't like them. Archie was my favorite.
