    I understood that haiku are not supposed to have a title. I have noticed that everyone titles their haiku here (and on many other sites) and - though I am limitted in my knowledge of the form - is it not true that they should stand alone, without a title?

    I look like the fall of a dogtrack sliding down the drunk side of Bukowski's thigh in the deep afternoon reflected from a bottle of Budweiser pressed to the lips of a green eyed women being ridden by the spirit of Muhammad Ali- At least, it's what I've been told, asleep and dreaming.

    Well Mark, an 'adonis' or a 'doughnut'....Hmmmm strange contrast either way. I doubt I am the only one curious about how people here really look.

      I agree with you...but that's the beauty of the world-wide web, I guess. When I get around to it, I'll put a real picture up.

    Boo! Scared you- popping in to say hello- may not post for awhile- PH's deep santeria voodoo curse worked on me and these pills- they're calming me down a bit.

    Those false teeth were terrible. I discovered that you made them out of wood! What a cheapskate! It's ok though, because I don't really need them. I prefer most foods pureed. Ever had pureed prime rib? Mmmmmm good.

    mary it was supposed to be kept quiet, it was a photo of a man and two children
    they cut the children out of the photo and just left me, i was led to believe
    that the photo would be left in the site, i gave her a short history of my
    life and who i was how i made it as a poet, which in itself was a story on it's own, they just put what they wanted to put and the rest is history
    an example of why i dont trust people, another woman in america has my photo
    somewhere in texas, the photo was rather scary, i had long blonde hair and
    i have a battered face from my sporting days, janice pickering might have the photo

    Mr. Saywell,
    You mentioned your photo on the web.....(so ugly you're handsome) ...I'm very curious to see this photo myself. Would you be willing to say where that might be found? I see so much of your work here, it's always nice to put a face with it. Sincerely, Mary
