So many questions asked
to a pane of glass.

This one was actually inspired by your poem, Maureen. I realized my reply could work as a poem, with a few minor modifications. Thanks for the inspire (and I've done the same many times -- still do!)

Mike... don't get me wrong, I love your work, and I like your clever phrasings, but lately the exceedingly short stuff has been bothering me.  I like this idea, but I think you could stretch this out into an entire poem.  So many questions asked to a pane of glass... and?  

If there are so many, write them... I miss your longer, more elaborate work.

I have been. My stuff's scattered pretty evenly throughout Open and Sanctuary, with some side trips to Dark and Mature when the need warrants.

The shorter ones are simply because I feel going on would ruin the impact and the essence of it. I could say

"So many questions asked
to a pane of glass.
Why am I so tall?
What's up with the hair"
etc.

And that would lessen it to me.

I write long when the material needs some room to breathe and space out. Otherwise, a simple phrase or essenced idea is as powerful to me.

One of my earliest one-liners

"She is a still moment that seems to move."

I could never elaborate on something like that, nor would want to.

Anyway, visit Open. Two lengthy ones, or three or four if you go back five days.
