Is this minimalist poetry?

Kind of like the poetic version of a Rauschenberg...

A moment of childish playfulness on my part.

Sorry.

No reason whatsoever to apologize.

If Leila's having a rough day, she might think i'm poking fun at her rather than just messing about in the small hours...

Actually, my last two feedbacks to Leila have been "don't be afraid to make it shorter" so I thought for a moment she was messing with me.

If you were compelled to make your intentions clear, that's fine.

But there's absolutely nothing wrong with a little playfulness.

And she complains about this being a clique and wants to stomp off after deleting her poems...

I mean, come on. I don't have any patience for that kind of drama.

I make no excuse for caring .

People behind typed words - I don't know their lives or what they're dealing with.

Oh please. Really?

If you tell me what you're going through in your life, or even HINT at it, I will sympathize.

But I'm not a mind reader.

Call me jaded -- but when it comes to what's behind the "typed words," I can't count the times I've seen people stomp away from a forum because it wasn't going the way they wanted.

Don't give me this crapolla that I don't CARE.

C'mon Myers, let's sing it together. It's my favourite.

I'm hoping to put it back up soon. I'd like to try and make it a little stronger first. I was genuinely dissatisfied with it when I scrapped it.
