Sorry I've been so absent.
I had to look up unguent.
I wish Doreen could speak with me on this one, 'cause I'm left with a simple "wow".
I'd like to relate a story though, because Dor and I started calling each other "Lucy" and "Harpo" after we saw our similarities mirrored--just like in that episode of "I Love Lucy"-- with Lucille Ball and Harpo Marx and the mirror...and Mike is right, Doreen and I are/were at our best when we are just tawkin'.
There's no real craft as to what I do--and if Doreen has a theory you'll have to ask her. And allow her to answer.
I just like to keep things...simplicated.
Grinch? You just keep your elegant eloquence, with those nifty allusions and that tight meter that makes me go "argggh."
Free Verse? *laughing*
I don't even think I qualify...we've got Martie, Maree, Occasional Christopher, and so many others who qualify better than I to define the form.
Read them. I can't teach that sorta thing...just?
Take your internal dialog and type it as fast as you can, and pretty up the form with some fine tuned editing, and hey?
That is all I do.
It ain't art.
It ain't much.
It's just me, talking to you.
And I should go to bed. My head hurts like a mofo.
Ciao dawlin's. *smoochies*
