this cheap broom
fine on some flooring
black and white sounds harsh
that's the bristles, soft, forgiving
good for all hard surfaces

The cheap pointer
still on the screen
black and red flags,

Like hopscotch.

yes, i can see this. the image is blurry but the reality is that that any action has an emotion and sensation to go with it. and, as cocteau would have it, who's to say that rubbing your hand across a black surface doesn't feel different and give its own subtle sensations to the sensitive. and, in this poem, how does the sensitivity come to be? the 'forgiving' and 'good' strokes into our feelings.

You're my third pick by title alone on an annual visit. I'm disappointed. I might as well have picked your cheap old plastic broom up at the pound store for all the character it has. I'm sorely let down. If only it was as a brash as pop art. It comes close to something I'd like or I wouldn't be so mean.

I was mean. This has many merits. I read it over and over. And probably got jealous or something like jealousy.

no, you're right bettalpha, need to find the child at play again...

Your form is still off to me thigh...
