    I don’t understand how you can do so many kinds of poetry and I would suppose you’ve been writing a long time… Diane

    I loved the extended syllables. This has a world foodiness in it as well as making the bread making so immediate. Good work!

    I liked these lines:

    braid sides
    // together \\

    Where the // and \\ looked like braids.
