47 (who?)
scribbling down vicious verses on
tissue napkins while seated at
the corner of a sidewalk cafe is
about as romantic, raw and
honest a p(o)et
  -outside of the four corners of your bedpost-
can get

if you've got that person dreading over
drafts and dreams on end
  -of you, for you-
consider yourself a new owner
it is now time to
tame this p(o)et's perverse mane
you've got your hands on
a fragile purebred
which can be very tricky for
first timers

Is the poem's length acceptable enough?
What do you think of the flow?
Favorite line?

The last line breaks the basic flow excellently, and makes int unique! Congrats.

I think i like best of all the idea behind the poem :)

The flow is wonderful- smooth enough to keep you reading on in a steady beat but just rough enough to make you look back and REALLY read it- inbetween all the little cracks and crevices of the words that are just as important as its entirety.

I think it's nice that it's split in two- i feel that each side carries, collectively, a separate message of their own, and because of the harmonious individuality between them, i can't say either one is more favoured above the other

I also think the length is fine :)
Though I myself don't really care about length so much ^^;

Loved it. Love the pet/poet and the idea of how much we little artists need to be cared for... love LOVE the flow, it's snappy and fast and almost like a little beat going through my head. I saw all the images clearly, specifically the scribbling in sidewalk cafes.

Also, I have to say, I <3 Alliteration forever.

I wonder if this is how my husband feels about me sometimes? Anyway, I think you captured it brilliantly.

Eeee, I'm thrilled to know you've enjoyed the piece so much, lovely lady! :love:
You should give a listen to *disrhythmic's reading of this (can be found in my comment box below the piece itself), it's absolutely brilliant! :heart:

Haha, I bet it is! :giggle:
Thank you so very kindly for your humbling words of praise! :huggle:

I have no words to convey how much I love this poem. I felt as if I was smitten to my knees and now await that final blow that'll take me away to some poetic paradise of your own construct. It was fun, romantic and beautiful.

i really like this! It's really grounded for a romantic poem, which is different. I think that the flow fits the style really well, being split up and fast paced. I hope that's what you were going for, cause I liked it! My favourite line is definitely "it is now time to tame this p(o)et's perverse mane"
overall, excellent metaphor.
