OK, clicking this, I was so ready for this long funny love story filled with clever metaphors and wordplay. But this works too! Hmmm...onto Chapter two! Need to have a little more action! heehee ;) Always, Laura

Three words IS quite sparse (the title is actually longer ... ha ha!). I'll be sure to put in a word with the director man, to add a bit more drama ... for sure! This poem was actually inspired by you, Laura, as being the first to notice my "parenthesis escapades" .... so thank you :)

Only three words if the title is not factored in! I know what you mean ..I'm very OCD about replying to folks.

Thanks Iris. This was inspired by Laura's comment about how I like to use parenthesis a lot in my poems ... it came to me it was like an obsession (a love affair you could say).
