Maybe when poets post poem art, it should have a clue in the title and be rated more as art and not a poem.  I find these very cool and interesting but they aren't really poems.  
 — Isabelle5

WOW cool world art, it the same person who did the pipe?
 — Liliana

very original and funny!
 — frugal

Just noticed there is a family of art works, very refreshing, meet the steins, dogs and cats, the powerful pull of the choochoo, looks like a cup from starbucks though... very good all the three
j.g. smiles

 — firerocket

Thanks firerocket for the nice comment!
 — Redlander

ooohhh my,  i could not stop laughting. your crazzy, and this is cute.:)
 — unknown

It is amazingly cute; a sort of redux of a truly old sort of poetry where the formatting would make a flower or bird.  Here we have what seems like a train, but the driver and the cargo: they lack (it so-says), any coupling device!  "Twain" = two.  The loco needs to go with its tender, or run out of steam fast!  It's so compact and environmentally-conscious.  IF no human is an island (old saw), then here, we learn, too that no human is useful if it only pulls away from it =fool supply= (sort of a bad pun!)  Delightful in every way, this item.
 — R_Reid_Welch

Thanks R_Reid_Welch! Long time no hear! What have you benn up to?
 — Redlander

I guess some found it rather clever/cute.  It is more gimmicky than anything else.

I am fond of both, yet not fond of this.
 — OldShoe
