    You and your theme may tickle a crown of sonnets out of me. If so, oh Heavens, the work the work, lol, I will dedicate it to you, okay? The sonnets will seem so at odd with the poet that is calling to me: PLATH! She, free verser-- I will have to be careful, use the loosest of rhyme, imagery that startles and it must read as confessional, mind to hand without sensor or hesitance. In sonnet form? What the hell am I thinking. Oh, but its there there there, a gnat, buzzing, thanks to you. LOL. Plath had a portable typewriter, was mad for it. I understand. I can barely write on a page, scribble, stop and then cross out each line. But when I TYPE? Oh, its like the keyboard is a prosthetic... xox
