LOL. OK. I don't consider this 'better' because its less 'ornate'. But thanks for that. I know a little meter and wordplay to you is like Kyrptonite to Superman. You're nothing if not consistent. -LP

Monty, pretty good, less ornate than your usual attempt at " high" art. I always get this sense that you're pushing too hard for profundity, that you won't allow a colloquial phrase or even rhythm find its homely place in your work. This isn't necessarily bad, but it encourages you to write lines like " grasses 'polarized and unable/ to clarify, " as if the image, because difficult to " paraphrase, " is in itself meaningful or graceful. You know I don't insist on sense, but I DO insist on shapeliness.

Published in Orion Headless. I forget what issue, but in 2012. Tweaked a wee bit since then. -LP
