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.

You know, Sanaa, it took me forever to link up my poem using my phone without looking at my phone. But I've done it. Because I am freaking awesome. *hehehe* Just kidding... I keep one eye on the screen.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Hi poetry pals. I am at the farm this week, having some horse and puppy time. Distressed at a mother orca who has been carrying her dead calf around for almost a week now, in grief. The orcas are endangered on our coast, only 74 left alive, they keep losing their calves due to environmental factors. My heart aches for her, and for all the wild creatures.
