Changes in our argument are too subtle to note. Revolutions per minute, loops of disagreement, curling mouths carry us forward. My impatience is not with you, but myself—despising the slow progress I make.

I like your shorts. Sometimes they remind me of poetry.
I mean that as a compliment.
It’s like they sing with hidden meaning.

This was a welcome comment. I’ve been struggling with these. I’m in that lull of What in the world will I write about?

I also think you are onto something…as the word count lessens, each word has more multi-tasking to do.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Muti-tasking of words. I like it.
That’s what a poet, and a short-short story writer, does. A novelist uses many words to create a scene, but you have to plan each word, not just the right word, but the perfect word, to convey meaning.
That takes a lot more thinking and courage in the hopes that the reader gets your meaning and finds the reading worthwhile.
Good job.
