Okay, I admit that number 3 was a bit over the top. What I was attempting to do was draw out the fact that we are sexual creations and that we cannot rule that out in a definition. My problem is I have yet to be able to identify or develop a working definition and that is because I think it is impossible to do so. What one person may determine something to be does not mean it will be the same to another. So, why bother. Hmmm. I don’t know. Perhaps it is simply a desire to classify a commonality which will not be attainable. Maybe the answer lies in how each of us thinks and behaves. That is the point that I am attempting to get to by simply writing thoughts and not to shock or to cause anyone to be upset. Unfortunately my eagerness to draw everyone out into a conversation with number 3 actually made myself appear in a negative light. Number three was a set up to draw conversation but it did not work. Experiments sometimes fail and that did. So, I am coming to the conclusion that I will not be able to come up with a definition and to return to my prior comments that is okay. What I have learned from this adventure is that what we define ourselves as being is what is important. What someone else thinks about us is really none of our business.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
