You should have gone to co-ed camp.

You learned more. I think.

Adding my Congratulations to Tzara and Calli. 30 in 30 is tough once, twice and quite conceivably difficult thrice. I need you multi-monthers to tell me, does it get easier?

Thank you Anna, Champie, and Ms. Crewe, for the congratulatory messages. They are kind of like the water bottle at the end of a marathon. Very welcome, though perhaps devoured too quickly.

I move my moving will be a moving toward,
my sin slanting by you, unpossessed.
this is beautiful ...

I agree RF. RainMan has been exhibiting beautiful poetry on the 30/30 thread. I am always struck by his ease of expression. Rainman, you must be the most romantic guy to be around when you're busy making love poems

You make writing 30 poems look easy, RainMan. Thanks for giving us another month of poetry to look at.

Congrats once again! You deserve a break! What wonderful poems you put out this month, we are fortunate to get our daily dose.

Me, I cannot even handle 10 days anymore!

anna! Your poem number 7-13, Smog Colored Glasses, is fantastic. Negative integers the value caught in the gaps of conversation ... I love it.
