Mayhem6779 chapter 1 . 8/24/2004
I once went to CA with the (naive) hopes of making it big (ala Morrison & The Doors...) The trip didn't live up to my expectations, yet I learned so much about the things I wish for, and how if I let myself get too caught up in the wish, I lose sight of the beauty of the experience (just being there!). This poem reminds me of my trip yet you have managed to find an appreciation for the moment, which I could not until after... How we long to re-create the innocence of youth, and the time in our lives before expectation clouded experiences before they happened!

You made me wish I was Adam, just to spend one day with you would be worth it. Of course the refrence to Lucy did much to win me over! (**)

Beautiful. Just beautiful. Very sweet, but you would have been running away to Cuba if your name was Lucy. Ricky was from Cuba, not Mexico. Don't mess with my TV knowledge

KerouacandGin chapter 1 . 8/19/2004
This was very nice, I like the imagery. One thing I'd like to question about, in the seventh line of the poem, is it supposed to be due, or do? Having it spelled due is confusing me very much. I could be misunderstanding, but if it's supposed to be due, then maybe you should phrase it "he was due..." Or if it was supposed to be do, it would make he was satisfactory for the job on short notice. Sorry, I'm going on too long. I was just wondering. Nice job either way.
