TheFinalDoom (Jan '04) This was my final email to Schmack, which i had chrestened "Doom, with apples". Hence the name (steph's willful misinterpretation aside).
SolipSism (May '04) Written as part of a way too short Battle_of_Wit poetry war, i decided i actually liked it. I'm also amused that i managed to reference both Hamlet and Dante in the same poem

A Rose (Jan '05)
Im going to bump this just to see if i actually get a response - now that wiki is mostly new people who may or may not have found this page. I really do like comments. Especially insightful ones. Cheers --Nick
- You will get a response, but it will not be insightful, because it consists of the following sleep-depped observation: I am amused that when I misparse the title "TheFinalDoom" and read the poem that way, it still mostly makes sense. At least, I *assume* it is a misparsing. ;P I believe I have made this comment before, but I can't remember, because I am mostly asleep. --Steph
- I think i need a description of how you're parsing it...
- As, essentially, "The Doom of Finals." I mean, "long days and longer nights"? and all the hints of forgetting? It's totally "I'm in a final, and I *remember* staying up all night studying, but now I can't remember any of the actual material! Oh, and because I'm so tired, the light hurts my eyes!" And then "my upraised arm falters. My grasp loosens." (I drop my pen, because I give up on trying to write any more.) Yay for willful misinterpretation! --steph
