I'm not sure I really get your poetry. This one kind of appeals to me though.

didn't like this one until *just* *now*.
do you realize how long ago i read that for the first time?
 — jade

no, how long?
and why just now?
 — gnormal

This is good. Too short and abstract to be haiku. New style? what's it called?
 — mouser8r

first read:
said, 'okay, whatever.'
second read:
laughed as I got it.
 — semaj

 — Moose

I guess the site hadn't really ramped up yet. Pretty lame.

OO!  Medical/scientific refrence?  Am I confused or was that really cool?

This is wordplay as it's meant to be played. I love that aside from the two most obvious reasons you get the bonus third and forth reason by transposing the reading of either of the final lines --

I like it, really... I'm not sure why. Maybe because of its simplicity...
 — tiny

hey... neet play on words...
 — aforbing

Neat* aforbing. ;)
 — Kiss

No... I meant it like that--I, too, wished to play on words.  
 — aforbing

I knew by reading the title that this is a gnormal poem.  Gnormal reeks of awesome-ness. I've learned to appreciate his kind of poetry.  I can't say I really like this poem, but it has a fun play on words.  I still appreciate it though...the "trance forms"= transforms.  "your cell"= yourself...clever.~Chris King

the title is spelled: ourselves.  and line 2 is transforms.  you have really crappy spelling.

 — unknown

I guess I picked a moldin goldie, but I wanted to see what your poems are like. By this? I have to say slightly contriversial and frowned upon by the unknown god of poet trees. I like word play. That's how I fell in love with form poetry to begin with. One of my first questions was, "But why would you want to do that?" Answer was, "because you can."
 — NeighborDi

I feel trapt within the reverberations of the meaning of this poem. Can't...stop...reading...help!
 — unknown

not getting it
