    Everyboby has a time and a place. Death is there all the time sometimes in a pack of cigaretts sometimes in a bottle of wine.

    The shape of death parked in a tee shirt pocket. Potent portrait of a powerful addiction.

    Even tho' this didn't place in Craig's contest, it is still a personal fav bc it is the most polite way for me to show my anger towards this horrible vice...thanks for reading, friends. Thanks for appreciating it so much too. :) gwendolen

    Dear Gwennie, how sad to read this; I was one too and being hooked on the stuff is an overpowering addiciton but I did get off them three years ago finally. The pain from such unnecessary loss must be devastating. Love, Elizabeth

    An excellent illustration of the power of words. The shape shifts with the words.

    A very creative write, Gwendolen! Great imagination gives credence to it's shape. Powerful and filled with strong emotion. That quick burst of outrage at the end, made me feel even more sad. A great write!! Best wishes, Mikki

    Calling on our imaginations!! I am so oblivious, that I have to have some of the shape poems completely spelled out for me.So I LOVE the way you took this on, very creative!!

    Give em' hell Gwen. Someone's got to get that message to the kids.

    Heart rending poetry, because of the death stick.

    You have spoken words of truth here,my dear friend! The words in this poem should be posted on many walls.On this side of the Soup bowl,they now have pictures on the cigarette package,-showing how badly it treats your body.Still..,young folks start smoking! Hmm,maybe they think: "nah..,its not making me sick,that just happens to other folks.."?!? Agree with my missus below me here: Strong AND powerful poem,Gwendolen! Hugs,Arild

    Hey, Pen-Gwen, You have been busy, of late, giving shape to this poem? Wonderful for its message in the light of your experiences, tho I would like to differ a lil based on my life over here. hugs and luv!!! Jag

    Wow, the power behind your words Gwendolen is truly amazing! I thoroughly loved this write! I too hate cigarettes as they killed my grandmother, so I can relate to this poem. The rest of my family don't smoke and I will never allow smoking in my house, period(exclamation point)! I believe that this shape poem will do well in the contest, even if you couldn't get your box put together the way you wanted it, this one works just fine! What a fabulous and tremendous piece my friend! Great Work!!
