Procrastination by means of poetry

Observation one: I've probably been listening to too much opera. These ain't exactly cheery, are they?

Observation two: poems do almost diddly-squat to up your word count. They do give you pretty much instant gratification, however, unlike your average novel.

Observation three: I couldn't come up with decent titles to most of what I write if you held a gun to my head.

Ack! Caught! Actually, I have two possibles to send. I'm pretty sure the short short isn't worth of publication...I can do poetry, and I can do long stuff, but the in between isn't pretty. So we'll see.

Tomorrow! Really! It'll be in the mail!

Word verification: blebodoo. I don't have a fancy definition, but it's fun to say! Blebodoo!
