Yeah, I guess you're right. It's more about the need to complete something rather than the content though, same as with any homework. Content I either like or not, share or trash.

That gazelle book is awesome! The illustrations are totally adorable, kudos to your mom. Interesting to know that these are loosely based on reality, cause it's pretty easy to see with some, but others... like, the watercress shipment thing- are you a nautical terrorist??? lol

Thanks so much for the kind words! I think the shipment thing was just imagination running loose : D

I liked Morning Shower a lot. 'teeth stuck in meat/mouths stuck as smiles' reminds me of something similar I've written ('a smile is just another way to bare your teeth'), similar thinking perhaps. Grim physicality! Wilfred Owen liked it too, although in a different context.

Thanks! Honestly, I had to look up who Wilfred Owen was. (Don't know shit!) Seems like grim physicality was the only way for him to poetically process the horrors of war. Meanwhile, I'm just complaining about my dreams... Anyway, I really like that line, 'a smile is just another way to bare your teeth'. I think it could be the official slogan for passive aggression lol

Ah, I think Owen is just a UK thing (also reading him now so he's at the front of my mind). German poetry is beyond me, so I really appreciate having your bilingual & English poems.

Your reading list reminds me that I haven't updated my own 'ridiculous' reading list on my personal website for a while. Another thing for the 'To do' list, although I suspect the 'ridiculousity' of my list should be a matter of shame, embarrassment and despair! Anyway, it's interesting to look at someone else's list

"Shame, embarrassment and despair" is exactly how it feels like to look at your reading list a few years down the line and find some obvious stinkers! It would be interesting to see your list too if you ever feel like sharing.

I have a fraction of my list shared on my reviewer profile on the website already. But as I said, it is long overdue to be updated, and even then, I could only include some of the books I have backlogged in the house to read. I'm a compulsive book buyer - have been all my life, but I'm trying to slow down now - so things are a bit out of control.

I had a wisdom tooth pulled in the 90s and for some reason that maybe only you can understand, I still have it. I don't know what's stranger: that, or the fact that I clicked your button, "Show me the teeth!"

Oh wonderful! I was wondering, does it hollow out over the time or does it remain solid?

Mines stayed solid. There was nothing wrong with the tooth. There just wasn't enough room and it had begun to cut into my gum, causing an infection. It just seems more yellow these days.
