 … It’s Hard, It Seems, to Leave Right
By Steven Minchin

Sometimes I have to leave twice
It seems, it’s in my nature
I guess the first time I don’t get it right
It’s hard
It seems, to get it right …

    Good job. I like the short ones.

  2. Thanks bobbietroy, I’ve really been enjoying working on my ellipsis poems, seeing the power of economic use of language in works that circle back on themselves

    Steven, so much, in so few words. Love this poem. Thank you!

  4. Jean, thank you so much for that nice comment, it means a lot.
