Magpie #47 - Family



Pulling:
Outside agents
Like centripetal force
Threatening to separate us
Thus we must hold fast to one another
Or else our nuclear family
Will be blown apart by
Outside agents
Pulling

    Ninotaziz, the form is called Rictameter. I saw it on someone else's blog. It's sort of fun to do.

    Is that a hug or a kiss? I could never remember which one was "X" and which one was "O" - not that it matters to me. ;)
