    Wow...knowing that my African "Alliums" just fluttered to the ground, softly wavinging goodby until next year...this poem has me scratching mine dome Sir, and not from the threat of lice ,lol, yet why the "Alliums" have caused you great sadness ? I have theories my friend, yet who am I to deter another reader from your (write-ful) plot ! Great write Mr. Goff ! james

    This is multi-layered in meaning...in feeling, just as an onion :) Well done! ~ Carrie

    WOW! It's a "blue" fad. I like the sense of this one, Jim - very perceptive, very multi-sensual. Love, daver
