Ah, always clever and a great bright spot in another gray, gray day in Portland!!! Have a fun tomorrow!!
This really speaks to me, as I was a left-handed little girl whose daddy made her do it with her right. But kudos to me--- Now I can do it both ways.Very cool presentation. It gives me the slightest bit of enlightenment regarding how your brain works. I dig it.
clever - my mind actually takes this poem a variety of ways.
Spaces and gaps get the mind trying to fill them. This time an absolute void: what is left is rightor in the middle someplacespaces all dependIt was a fun read, MZee. Standing out was "bi" with its lots of possibilities, obvious in the middle of am'bi'dextrous...
Oh my, YES! Apowerful statement in so few words.
I like your mini-poem: "Left hand's love left right." But even if they "broke up," they're kind of stuck together. :)There are so many little nuggets of goodness in here, the most obvious being the "bi" statement. But it's the hidden bits that I'm hunting out.Like, "be patient with" makes me think that Left and Right are both sick, so really, neither can be blamed: they're both in a mental ward, patient(s) with each other.There's also "we're all born right," meaning that we should stop giving each other such a hard time because we're all just trying to figure things out the best way we can, and maybe that's true; maybe there is no wrong. Maybe there's just "this."The "bi" is also masking a "bye," in which both hands are waving, ending the relationship.I also see some "s love" tucked away in the lower middle-ish section.
"Clever girl!" Said in my rather terrible Doctor Who accent. ;-)
Innovative way of presentation MZ!Hank
I loved that big bold "bi."Well crafted, as usual.
LOVE this. Words falling like snowflakes, with a message that sticks.
Visually interesting and thought-provoking too :-)
This one deserves clapping applause! Very well done.
Oh yes.. And you need them both.. So many layers in this one,
I've heard that Southern women do it with both hands. What?This is extremely clever and perfectly arranged.
This is rich! Formatted so well.
Hi MZ--I am tempted to say something about sinister poem, as I think sinestre ==or something like that--is the latin word for left-handedness-and it shows the way that difference has so often been historically treated. Agh. Very clever cool poem and really well-executed. Thanks. k.
This is so apropos to ee in his rebellion... "As an adult, Cummings would become an emblem of the sexually liberated Twenties. His poetry has a sexual frankness..." This is how I interpreted your clever piece MZ.
So clever, we are all born ambidextrous.
Clever...I've gotta hand it to you, MZ.
Nice use of enjambment in this playful piece! I enjoyed it! Have a good week.
Witty and beyond clever. I really like this and want to direct a few young people in my life to this poem to ponder the words.
