First I want to copy EO and say "the esecnse of esecnse" and next I want to
nick "alchemy" off of the watercats.Lovely poem of constant movement
forwards, and really liked Distilled... be-thrilled... be-spilled. Great
words in the right places - what more can I say?!

The raggedy man and lizabuth ann have been my favorite "people" for the
last 57 of my 61 years. What a pleasure to find them "courtin". Both poems
I have passed down to my children and graqndchildren. Most love both poems
a few scared of the goblins tho.
