When Dumbfiddle's doohickey
went on the fritz,
they took it apart
to fix up the bits.

They unwound the winder,
and loosened the lid
that unsprung the springles,
and scattered her wits.

i can't really explain why, or when i began to realize this about you -

your life, your existence on this earth, your writing, you yourself, cat have affected my life and my heart, a heart that isn't always very capable of reaching out to feeling admiration and affection.

you are an amazing human being. you life is precious.

just wanted to let you know how much i appreciate you.

Broken she is,
and broken she remains.
How she functions,
none can explain.

I 'love' this. It is so good to see you back.
