    another 2: 47 am morning for me roasting marshmellows around the flames of the once great city that use to be Poem Hunter, now a pile of burning rubble and ash full of sad memories and crazed ax-men. I pat my uzi gently on it's glistening, pregnant side, and pop another gewy mellow into my ever ready mouth.

    Poetry Hound complimented my aunt who posted the other day- she's a very good poet (otherwise Poetry Hound would not have complimented her, surely) - Any guesses on who she might be- She only has a couple of poems up right now :)

    I'm new fairly new at this website and it's 'scoring', and so I suppose I want to offer what some of you call a 'challenge'...if one must score a poem less than a 7 or 8, how about writing a comment to suggest improvements (or at least give a reason) ?

    As I sit in the comfort of my own home... I wonder on another possible challenge... what does 'home' mean to the poet? Pain, history, reconciliation, stasis, happiness or sadness? Another poetry challenge perhaps. What is this 'home' we live in, or perhaps cannot return to?
