    Dots and Dashes, are we the only sane people here?Or are you going to disappoint too?Now I've got Palmer basically kissing Acker's a*s to get in a 'nice' reply. Are you kidding me?What a joke this place is! This place is like a bad Addam's Family episode. Worse than I could have ever imagined. I used to trust Jeff's judgement, but now I know he's either senile, or he's friggin ACKER! !

    (Dots, help me Son! Help me to understand! !)

    (Palmer, why did you turn into such a p*ssy?I don't get it?)

      Anyone who can't place J.C. at the top of his list of, at least the active poets on this forum, is either an idiot, or has an ax to grind. The poem below is an effin gem. Not a single superfluous word ... more

    Sunday Morning
    by Wadin Hooyo

    The two n$pples look at each other
    and giggle excitedly,
    while the navel glances up and smiles.
    The va@g$ina keeps on daydreaming.

    Frank, are you saying Mike Acker is the troll? He's assured me over and over that he isn't. If it turns out he is, I'll be very pissed off! ! There are some indications he is the troll (his never attacking me, the troll's use of the same words (big bird, stumps, etc.) , his unrelenting dislike of Lamont, but until he admits it, I just have to trust he is who he says he isn't. I hope he isn't.

    Palmer, you see what this moron is all about?He deleted your (fair) post like he did mine last night. He doesn't want to be involved in discussions about poetry. Don't ever fool yourself into being nice to him. He's all of these racist, Nazi, buffoon personas on here and nobody will convince me otherwise; it's on like Donkey-Kong now. You think YOU ripped him to shreds?You haven't seen anything yet.

    A poem is like a Swiss watch maker's watch. It is not about the the time, but the craftsmanship.
