Reviews for It's April
the naked civil servant chapter 1 . 7/1/2006
i must stop relating ooriginal beautiful poetry to mainstream pop lyrics, but this did so remind me of :

& the plants are dry

& they need to drink

so you do your best

& you flood the sink

sit down in the kitchen & cry

mood of utter desolation, desperation, numbness, delusions. beautiful and sad.
Femme de Dieu chapter 1 . 4/20/2006
Whoa! That last line! Was totally unexpected and hit me like a ton of breaks upon the back of a feather.

It seemed to be such a light and airy litle ditty, April (time of renewal and love) and kitty-kats named Mr. Eliot. How whimsical...and then...

BOOM!

Thrown in a pit of despair.

EXCELLENT work. I love the simplicity of most of your pieces. To capture complex thoughts in few words is a real art. But you've also written lengthy prose also, with just as much understanding and depth.

Keep at it!

Dreamy and almost alluring. Intriguing picture this gives off

Simple & brilliant.
dollface and her cancer chapter 1 . 4/10/2006
I am oddly charmed by this.

It's so simple, you know there's just got to be something you aren't seeing.
not sure yet chapter 1 . 4/10/2006
o my, what a mood you have created here, quite nicely done, leaves a nice hollow feeling, simple and effective, excellent poem...
diffident chapter 1 . 4/9/2006
This makes me sad. I don't feel a thing either. :( The concreteness of this poem and the simple statement at the end go well together. I like.

water lily nymph chapter 1 . 4/9/2006
hehe, how sweet! by giving the cat the name 'mr. eliot' it seems as though his opinion is highly valued. like he must *approve* of spring. well done. :)
