It must be the stent.

You can't handle my complete attention.


Upon re-reading by johnny (4.00 / 2) #3 Tue Nov 01, 2011 at 08:57:04 AM EST
I think Den Creature is a great poem. I read it too fast the first time. Congrats to K. Good show old bean.

However given a chance to do-over, I still probably would give my sole vote to Changes. This is WFC, after all, not Poetry or the Kenyon Review. And all that work for one perverse joke deserves recognition; that's why Fred invented HuSi. Plus, there were two perverse jokes in the story (including the already mentioned joke that upon realizing that one's beloved is, indeed, an actual angel, one becomes somewhat repulsed. As George H.W. Bush might have said, "how true that is.")

She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)

No changing your mind after you find out who wrote it. I really shouldn't be allowed to write verse, although this turned out better than some of my previous attempts. Maybe I'll get there in another couple decades.

Perhaps I don't know nuffin 'bout birthing no babies.

But I really did read the poem the first time in a bit of a rush, what with deadlines and all. So it mostly went over my head.

And upon re-reading I really do like it mucho.

Sure, I'm your fren & all; stipulated. But if I didn't like it I wouldna said nuffin.

I really don't like my own poetry very much, but unlike my prose I'm not experienced enough to judge it well or to know how to improve it. So I'll take your comment as an indication that I might have hit upon something this time.

Thanks.

Thank you. by toxicfur (4.00 / 2) #4 Tue Nov 01, 2011 at 10:00:42 AM EST
As I said before, thanks for such a fantastic theme this time around - I hope that the next time husi is up for one of these I'll be able to come up with something even close to as good.
