I have no space,
have so much time,
out of the race

Tried to keep pace,
bet my last dime,
(meter and rhyme) .

    Short, to the point, and perfect cadence.... We often need brief little dalliances such as this abrupt array of words from time to time in order to cleanse the mind's palette.... Enjoyable read... (Report) Reply

    Delightful read, Edgardo, aware that there is not indeed enough space in a cell phone for more and more verses. (Report) Reply
