Very existential clever, Mr. D. Lines! You got the ink grip gift of gab. Your persuadable view is nebular non-flab. No gaslight talk ... just a bipedal perpendicular walk. Such a cool poem to read this fine, rainy cold morn. An instant PSoup classic. May love light your path in life always. Romantic Warrior
