                       Your Creative Mind Just Needs A Little Push!

I love the idea of this app but the flaws in it are maddening.
Somehow, with this app, I am able to thread ideas together and
create a sequence of poetry.  In comparison, the rectangular pieces
find the floor by the fridge.  I found that when I go down
to the poems the slider wouldn't stay down, and I couldn't open
the poems when I changed orientation on my bottom of the screen.
I have tried reloading. The problems are still there.

I felt like I was on youtube.

Then this happened—

I had no food on me.
I’m a terrible student.

Some people can do anything.

It’s comfortable.
This giving limbs.

I thought
to ask you poet

where your verbs
are at

where your bag
to wash yourself

which is a joke
about a Boston man

or Worcester man
a joke I’ll tell you

if you ask me
whether poetry

should educate
I’ll ask you who

among you
is grammar on.
