      • Thanks, and, if I recall: “Trains tantamount to stop/an accelerated engine of self-decollation/head-on collision, a thrilling division/just heed the mindless mess.”

        There’s also a line about sleeping pills being dreamy girls… But if brevity is the soul of wit, Dotty Parker kicked my ass.

      • There was only one Dorothy Parker, so there is no shame in her kicking your ass. She kicks all of our asses if we try to play on her field. Your lines are still good, though (especially the first two lines from earlier). I also really like the middle two here. Not that there is anything wrong with those bracketing them, I just really like the middle ones. Which means exactly nothing, I know. Just my opinion.

      • I wrote it a long time ago, before I started thinking about poetry proper, which was only a couple of years ago, which was then as a means to feed the addiction while I wasn’t able to work on a novel.

        And thanks…

    • I know, same here! My wedding was made possible by Etsy-I bought both of my wedding dresses from Etsy shops, among many other wedding (and non-wedding) things!
