Very dramatically read. (Except for “the end” which is deliciously small by comparison.) The pace and spacing make this a perfect piece for remix and reuse.

Thank you very much, Admiral. “The end” could have been cut, but I left it in for humor’s sake :)

Thank you, snowflake. Sure I’ll post the words. I’ll have to figure them out, though. That was a bit of freestyle poetry. I did 3 takes with different words. I chose this one because I could feel it more.

Your delivery and choice of words are brilliant. And the fact that you didn’t use your best mic probably adds to the overall atmosphere of the piece.

Thank you so much, Sub. Sometimes when inspiration hits…. there is not time to root around for equipment. I strike while the iron is hot.

Thank you. I feel like you shared something intimately personal with us. A very powerful pell indeed.

You are welcome, Susan. At times, it’s hard to know how much to share. I’ve shared too much before and been sent to hospital…. forced, rather. That is in the past (I hope). This is me, and it is raw.

Oh, there’s strength in you alright… big time. I love that you did this freestyle… extra marvelous. I’m with you… how much is healthy to share? I often feel that everything is worthy… alienating though it might be… it’s all been felt… and will be felt again. Of course, then there’s reality…

Thank you Kara. There’s much that I’d like to post, but I’m afraid of the consequences. I’ve a history of depression, and suicide attempts. For this reason, I’ve learned to be careful about what I post online. Trust me…. all it takes in my city of Tulsa is for one person to call 911 saying I’m unstable and the cops will be breaking down my door. They’ll haul me back to the psychiatric hospital. I hate it there: A waste of time and money. That is why I’m careful.
On a lighter note…. Thanks for diggin’ the pella and for the review.

You’re certainly smart to be careful… I wish it weren’t this way… (specifically for you and in general)… I’m grateful for what you do (and can) share.
