      Well, thanks for the good wishes, and you’re welcome for the reboot. But, I am so poetry illiterate I don’t know one kind from another. So, I’ll leave it to you professional poets. That’s what you are now, you know? A professional poet, and how wonderful that is. So way proud of you!

It’s about shaking off the fear of breaking rules, and simply playing with words and images, and the sounds words createin your ear.
