    F.J. Hi! I do not see the "trash talking" in your poems, and that perplexes me. Your poem (prose) is lyric, firm and well written. I admit that it made me stare at the lines over and over again, but it looks kind and carefully composed in order not to insult but to warn others. Is that the purpose of it? G.

    ... For me a poem should be understood and felt by the reader; fancy words and/or formatting means nothing if the poem cannot be understood.

    Oh, and I did not consider this to be in "prose" form as those are typically in paragraph format and I did not care for my poem to be formatted as such. But I do not do this for formatting, as that is the opinion of whichever person invented it; but more so for the emotion that flows through me at the moment embraced...

    :) it is a bit of both...but that is the lyrical trash talk I was referring to. Here it is not so forward as in Feeding the Flames or others but still dissing, so to speak, others word abilities in comparison to mine.

    You may be a small voice as only one, but a large number of you with something in common can be heard. Good write.

    You had me at edible enchantment. For only if one's mind is capable of pulling back the layers and diving into your words will they be able to taste the sweet nectar that lies beneath. Amazing gift my friend:)
