i remember driving
downhill you were driving
leaning out the window to look
through fog in the black chevy
on our way to the tree stand
i remember being scared
to go hunt deer
i was scared of the drive there as well.

 — silllything

you asking or telling?

nice poem, hank
 — varun

in attempting to package a moment you've forgotten to include the feeling you had of the moment. that makes this 'expressionist', where the kind of language becomes the poem. this one needs more bark to take it out of poodle.

i like it but it is the same poem to me without four and five.  
i love the idea, but its such a good one, dont hesitate to rethink the whole dng thing.

nice! you use the bastard rhyme to have somehow put DIVING in my head.
the rhyme which should sound awkward doesnt.
im all into that!
