chunks end high mist-tear larry circuit bypass lark

we either
neglect or
ignore the
often do
we neither
notice nor see
circles are
no sides taken
nor areas squared
cubed much less
only solid
flat out repetitious
and curves
bipolar infinitely singular
problem[']s solved
real members
undefined you
plush or less

'so the sign said ...' no sides were taken accepting the inside - nice homage to Larry long haired freaky people need not apply Lark

mr. larry where are you now lark?
; )
 — fractalcore

hello, PC.

 — fractalcore

we often neglect or ignore,
the signs which we notice or see...

and circle the angles
triangularly scribed
with 'sought-out'
and 'sobbing'
and 'me'.

the thoughtful
of curves and conventions
allow us the problem as 'solved',

so, thus, with the reading,
the part which is needing
is ever for-never
 — joey

that's a lovely response, joey, and by that
gesture of yours, you're not allowed to get
away on a vacation yet.

 — technomancer

in the only language i know.

L12, "no" instead of "nor" (for sound and subtle import)
L18,  exercise your right of poetic license by spelling bipolar as "bi polar" (subtle import again, see)

The shorty-short lines make this poem unduly difficult to read at places.
But perhaps you have a very good reason for them. I've only read the poem three times.
It sort of gets easier by familiarity, but, most readers won't bother chip-chopping even once through a deliberately minced poem (my guess).

I critiqued this poem because I like nonetheless; it is smart and clean.

OOOOOOOOOOOOK, eyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.
what's for dinner? share the bread amongst society
and eat from dirty palm leaves or just palms w/o the
leaves or you can eat-her this or that on your butt
but who cares aside from the dessert on the side
who's no other than your next of kin that you're apt
to devour when nobody's lookin? look in or out we
go ga-ga ghee-ghee hahaho...

oh and um, ab-stain from too much drug deficiency,
we should.
