    And so it goes, Martin. Over and over and over until we finally get it right.

    Unless we choose NOT to incarnate. We can go that route too.

    Yeah Kitty, Amen.

    Did a lesbian write that? Ay? Men?

    Not that you are, but if I was a woman I would be.

    Anyway, you naughty Indian lady... be well and thanks

    This is so organic and stripped down,it cuts and makes me feel. That's great! I love the title, so appropriate and catches my attention right away. The way you have the N stuck in some sort of loop is a great metaphor so many can relate. Doesn't life often feel this way? It's shocking how you sum up creation, existence and death with such short, broke yet complete thoughts. There's so much to life yet you have it all right here in so few words. Says a lot without much, I guess. Some sublte rhyming patters as well. Also the repetition of stanzas is so affective, it drives this piece home! It's very very good.

    These are some of my favorite lines:
    In a womb
    Sucking plasma
    Re-born

    Girls at school
    Girls in magazines
    Girls in bed.

    Work
    Drunk
    Fight

    Drunk

    Wife
    Pussy
    Dog
    Babies



    This is the only one that went over my head, I couldn't connect with it. I'm sure it's just me though
