Reviews for A McDonald's in Port Angeles, WA

Sitting here with a coffee aftertaste, I really enjoy that you could capture that within the first sentence and draw me in. I like how you play with renewal because the bathroom is dark but the mirrors are newly washed, is it morning or is it still a late night? I like that a lot because it also adds an interesting spin to a place not usually associated with renewal. You can find it in the oddest of places...

This is just awesome! Beautifully simple! Very powerful.

"Dark bathrooms, mirrors newly washed." This is my favourite part - it's very vivid.

Visual. Relatable, and simple enough to stretch to greater meanings. Good haiku. MD:77.

I like how you incorporate different senses, using visual, taste, and feeling.

Hmm. Interesting piece. I like it. :)

It amazes me that you can think up such brilliant pieces. I like the contrast with the coffee and the mirror in this one.

I like the paradox you present here; the dull, old, used feeling of the coffee-coated tongue, and the newly shined mirrors. The overall effect is one of...renewal? It's a hopeful feeling.

I like how you can describe a bathroom in a take-away joint and on the other side of the globe I can picture it perfectly. This was great, I really got a strong image from it. And a yearning for coffee all of a sudden. Hmm.

Peace, Daze
