Sixth,7th,8th,9th, yikes! Four days between the 2!
Does such injustice happen also, to you, You, or YOU? ?

To be truthful, it bothers me little IF...I just drink a
bottle of booze, my head lowered down in kitchen sink, ..

which once inspired my poem: "Better Than A Toilet"!
If I move to another site, COULD I start THERE anew?

Perhaps I'd get MORE comments, avoid the P-H squalor.
But this site IS free, and another may cost a dollar!

On an island faraway,
My soul I left to run astray.
I was stranded in a prison,
Until I was released into freedom.

From my heart’s eye
Came tears too heavy,
For human hands to carry.
Falling and calling,
