blackie the cat belongs to my friendly
yes, he is.
one day he got bit by blackie
but it was only once
(or so he says) blackie
never bit me and
when i hold him
and when we go get drunk at the house
he runs outside.
blackie is a good one.

well this blew my tiny mind
it reads like treacle and the meaning is satisfyingly sticky. i likey it.
wish i knew how to write like this
This seems more like a puzzle than a poem.
I can't say I know why this is such a big deal.
it's no puzzle to seem.
It sounds like Lennie from "Of Mice and Men".
i like the pivot words ... nicely done
interesting, but not quite great. it's like on of those pieces of visual art where somebody splatters paint in one place on a white canvas and calls it meaningful. it's abstract, but not necessarily art. abstraction is good when it carries some sort of artistic merit.
this is just pure abstraction and not a whole lot of poetry.
what is so abstract? it's actually quite literal, literally a description of a cat.
i love this.
my cat's name is blackie
Says a lot seemingly without saying anything at all.
thank you larry, it's a difficult game that i can't always play. but i try.
they kept him for me
Had a smile
that maded me giggle
Dug an put him under the apple tree.
bye bye blackie.
