    You are an incredible treasure. Superb shaping—love “get wells” as the handle. “glad word laughter” and “cold word coughing” … such a pleasure to my ear! (the sound of the words, not the noises of sickness). We all need someone wise to tell us when to go to bed … and to make us some hot tea! I love your steam. 🙂 This is so good!

      Thank you! I haven’t written many concrete poems (perhaps because the spacing can become so tedious at times), but glad you enjoyed it! I was in a mad scramble to post it on time, and ended up with an interesting title initially–it’s still embedded in the hyperlink. I still am not quite pleased with the handle, but I tried so many different ways to format it and this one seemed to be the most understandable (it’s supposed to say “Get Well Soon”) Maybe I’ll experiment some more 🙂
