I like this, but I feel like something's missing. It's hurrying through this bowling process and I think it would be better depicted if it slowed down and let everything unfold one at a time.

"special spin on her special / throw will knock down - ten / or less, more likely a split" I love that part.

"nothing / to suggest i can move." Really great. I love this image and all the things it suggests without even saying a word.

If a picture's worth a thousand words, how much is a poem worth? It's got to be more, hasn't it? Poetry's so much better than silly old canvas to tell a story.

Wow. This feels like rushing through thoughts. I really love that. Great start, too. "her head floats like a waterfall, / all wet and wondrous, so blue / in this white white world." Really lovely.

This is the kind of imagery that I've come to love about your style. Even a too-long hiatus can't let me forget my envy.

Eh. I'm not really feeling these 4 lines. They're just kind of... eh.


p.s. Hi! It's been a while. I hope you're well.

this could totally be a standalone poem on its own. second verse (specifically last three lines) was a bit incongruent with the rest of it though.

These are wonderful. My favorite would be the first piece here-home. Nothing like home is there? That was really an outstanding piece. i love that you're doing a series like this. i've also started doing a series of unfinished work recently.

anyway, i also love the being loud piece. i've never read a poem with the word onomatopoeia, haha.

I haven't read all the pieces here but i sure will when i get more time.

and i'll put this on my alert.

3am just makes my head hurt.

I'm not really feeling this one so much. It's more like a pretty thought than the beginning of anything. Nothing wrong with those, just... they don't make the best poetry.

There's not a lot to say, really. Bye.

the entire poem feels shy. this is brilliant, relates very well to the title. i like the last three lines- how the boy could bring out her joy. very simple and sweet, i love it.
