I too have been wondering recently where the distinction between verse and prose is made and this is a perfect example of an artistic piece of free verse. Too often free verse 'poems' are frustratingly nothing more than a dry monologue or one sided bland conversation with no literary creativity involved. So its a real pleasure to read something so well written and creative. Glad to see it nominated. Best wishes Milly x

I have to be honest, I've had my gripes in recent times as to what constitutes a poem and where the distinction between verse and prose is made and I do not know if I can fully draw it here, but the truth is, that doesn't matter here a bit. This is genius writing and deserves to win any contest - poetry or prose.
