    Ginsberg would be proud of you. I have a huge maple tree next door, and right now the lawn is buried a foot deep in leaves. Oh well, my grandkids love to play in them.

    The density packed within the brevity of your line cuts deeply.

      Thank you. I work harder on these American Sentences actually than I do regularly lengthed poems.
