"Funny poems Rich. I see them as the squashed self, trying to escape. Now, if the dog from poem 1 got a hold of the monster in poem 2...Yikes... Thanks for your intriguing view of the universe."

Thanks for your response to my post about Harrison Ridley. Don't know if you're from Philly and knew of him but, well, he was a beautiful soul.
