hm
 — Ananke

My index finger just what? Pushed the period key three times? Fell off? I don't know. This poem is obviously one not meant to be read aloud, but to be looked at much like a concrete poems are. I suppose it makes me think, but it's too vague to me. It is original however. ~Chris King 10/10
 — FrChris

Would the person who "wrote" this give some explanation, please? I just don't get it.
 — Isabelle5

that's probably the point
 — unknown

What good is poetry is no one can understand it? We might as well all go and figure out the new Da Vinci puzzle! (which I did - has anyone else tried it?)
 — Isabelle5

after you rate it, the rest of the poem becomes available. all you folks who've said something above, have available to you, something you didn't before commenting.
 — gnormal

the name? your finger just blue? just blew? I still... don't... get it...
 — unknown

look at what? i don't get this, like everyone else here......whats the point
 — unknown

d'oh. that was me.

and I get it now. very clever.
 — Ananke

what did you get????
 — unknown

er, the first unknown above me, not the second, how did that other one sneak in there... blah.
 — Ananke

...
 — unknown

HA HA HA HA. And you all criticize Moth and Waxwing's poems...now here is a poem that has outdone their's, there's not even a joke here to be read. I give this a one.
 — unknown

I didn't feel a thing.
 — unknown

I'm a bit confused and curious, and all of a sudden I got it.
(I cheated, though. Bad me.)

That's an amusing little thing.
 — semaj

...
 — unknown

wait, what?
 — starryme

I think it was a very novel idea. Clever. I don't think however it would equate to much outside this poetry workshop, only because that little username wouldn't pop-up after being read. Original idea however.
 — FrChris

can anyone explain, please?
 — unknown

hmmm.
 — done

okay i still don't get it.
 — done

These types of 'poems' generate the most responses. Now what does that tell you about this site?
 — unknown

when you must respond in order to see the poem,
that says nothing about the merit of the site or of other pieces posted.
 — unknown

ok, im sorry, i hate vague statements.
comment on this poem. anyone.
then after you comment, click on the username and you see the rest.
okay?

blah. im sick of this.
 — unknown

installation poetry! hehe.
 — britta

lol, gnormal is the cristos of poetry critical
 — Ananke

What's this ? minimalist poetry AND optical effects? WOW!
 — unknown

hmmm
 — unknown

 — unknown

Alright, I love it. Installation poetry indeed! Talk about working with the form.
 — unknown

OK I'll bite.....
 — unknown

OH JEEPERS!! clever you...
 — tinkerman

I rated it and I find no added comment. GIVE IT UP!
 — Isabelle5

Eheh. Nice idea.
 — unknown

Wow. That's wonderful. I love it.
 — unknown

I like it, but I think it needs to be shorter.
 — dweasel

 — jade

hints?
 — SpunHeart

WTF
 — dmu_96

Lol nicely done. I dont think many catch on what u are supposed to do.
 — dmu_96

I think this poem is trying to be profound and unconventional.
But it fails in that it isn't a poem.  It isn't anything.
It is superficial and conventional.

 — mrkhoo

me no get it
 — mrkhoo

Okay this is good and all, but why the hell is this still getting comments and my poems arent?

Irritating.
 — ShelbyS

okay, rated it one at first, but on second thoughts..its brilliant. here's a ten to even out the one. first one ever. less is more, huh?
 — wendz

Very clever gnormal. I am impressed. Having two accounts for a purpose other than to post more than two poems a week! Whatever will you think of next?!
 — thesilencing

Gnormal, I really respect your confidence. :) Even with all of these people criticizing you, you continue to justify the meaning of your poem.
 — jarofdirt

hmmmm.
 — claudia

 — kimado

 — opal

Well, I'm confused..

 — unknown

Your index finger just blue (blew) ... [me away].
 — Rixes

Can anyone explain this?
Ok, so my index finger just blew?!  What is the significance oif the three dots? I mean if my index finger just blewed then it would just be a bit messy?
 — unknown

I am typing this before reading other comments, which i am goin to do and feel really stupid for not getting whatever there is there to get, but oh well.

I think its hilarious, b/c its not a poem, but it is. but it was more hilarious when i thought the index finger was the middle finger,(or is it, im still not sure, but isnt it ur pointer finger? hmm...). or you could look at it as something sumone said, like: your index finger just... and fill in the blank, such as your index finger just...  went up my ass, or flew out the window, or pointed at the naked lady runnin down the street. :)  it leaves it all so open!

I feel cheapened!

This is just what I need at 10 am - thank you.  As others have said:  Clever!  I get it and love it.  Wd make a great title to a book of poetry because it would be exceptionally graphic.

As for it not being a "poem," that's hooey.  I've read books of poetry where the poet makes use of signs, symbols, and format and isn't half as meaningful.

This is my favorite poem of the day.
 — cynthmala

  big it up for da little dots y'all!
 — Meep

terrible waste of time. the problem with creativity is its flexibility which can be a strength or weakness. and in this case it was a weakness.
 — unknown

haha!! cool!!
 — sabz3003

My curiosity has gotten the better of me Mr. Jinks......-BR-
 — unknown

 — unknown

Anyone got a magnifying glass ,i thought i saw a speck of a word
 — larrylark

My index finger just.. um sits there?
 — carox3

hmmm
 — alana

i hate stupidity, this is stupid.
 — jittery

I can't decide if this is brilliance or jackass-ity.  probably jackassity.  for the 'unknown' with the simpsons line, i like what u wrote more than this 'poem'.  sorry, but this may just be the first poem i say something like this about: "tell me your kidding....or at least drunk"
 — EdwardDurden

Can My Pinky? ----->   ***
 — unknown

i want to take back my previous comments and say this is great.
 — username

scrolled down...down...down and ..down.. and down and down, hit a bunch of keys, scolled again, right clicked and there's your poem

 — hobby

 — chuckles

I don't know why you wanted me to read this.

Luxury handbags items like designer bags will of course vary in quality of construction and attention to detail. The packaging may also not be as glitzy as those of an original. In general though, the level of craftsmanship of counterfeited goods can range from decent to outstanding.
