Girl: Just read "First Impressions" and I don't get it. Maybe all I can think of is; "She is hooked on the man's craziness"

It was written as poetry, so it doesn't necessarily make perfect sense - it's just the abstract way things are going down - and I'm also making a joke about blind dates because you never know what's going to happen :)

Props to you! A very strange poem-- I am trying to imagine this man, and I think I have a good picture in my mind of one of my exes. lol.... Very unique indeed.

What a strange piece. Very strange indeed. I hope I never come across a man so strange as this.

Ok, I've decided that the male and female in this poem are birds...they like fruit and "flew" out the window! (I haven't worked out he burned pictures on the stove). This poem made my mind take a left turn! Loved it!

I saw the cover many times, but dunno why, I never read it.
Very different from anything I read. Your writing is great.
I don't know what to say :). Loved the poem, and your character is so bizarre, lol. Hope you write more poems likes this one.

What an absolutely quirky, non-put-downable, original read. I loved it (probably because I could relate.) I was thinking as I read this that you would roll your eyes and leave, but the end...well let's just say I grinned a huge grin. I am hooked!

Now that is different. At first I found it hard to follow and confusing, but I'm glad I stayed for the entire ride. What a ride it was! Look forward to more of your works! :0)

I'm not quite sure what to say! It's almost like reading about a "trip"!!! Your choice of images and the way you formatted this insanely wonderful poem grabbed me and wouldn't let go of me. Shades of Dylan, but absolutely unique and infectious! I hate to say it, but I identified with this guy immediately:)
