I like the rhymes of kinetic and frenetic. They belong together. (K)
As soon as I saw frenetic kinetic came into my head and the next thought was boiling water. This poem wrote itself.
The one with “putative” is so brilliant (actually all the poems are brilliant but I particularly like that putative one!
Thank you. I like being alone a lot of the time and I am interested in how others think of it, for others and for themselves.
As I’ve grown older I’ve started to really appreciate solitary time.
I’ve always liked being alone but the older I get, the more I like it.
