Marilyn m. reads ee.
larrylark

Marilyn lingers
 1
on a page;
 2
on a poem
 3
in a bookstore;
 4
"for it's spring,"
 5
she murmured,
 6
repeated;
 7
curving in "puddle
 8
wonderment"
 9
past "Bettyandisbel
 10
playing hopscotch
 11
and jump rope"
 12
through hawthorn
 13
and may flower,
 14
we are born again.
 15
She laughed
 16
and laughed.
 17
Her lips
 18
caressed the spring air.
 19
She was blown
 20
to a  place
 21
where someone
 22
"whistled  far and wee,'
 23
where
 24
''Queer little
 25
balloon man
 26
whistled
 27
far and wee."
 28

i reread this a few times to try and find something i personally feel needs improvement so i could write something other than "aaaa this is awesome".

the only thing i could come up with is L23 & 28. the repeat draws away from the ending, which is what really made me gleeful.

i like your poem a lot but i don't like your chosen layout at all perhaps it should be shorter in length and wider in width
 — bettalpha

not so sure about lips caressing spring air
but the rest is a dance both far and weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
sorry, got caught up in the moment. ....
i like the layout, and am not the least disappointed that it was monroe and not manson
'scuse me while i dance again
