@w-o-holmes  You mean irony?  Because I love irony.  But never mind if you meant satire.

Anyway, I reread your poem.  To be brutally honest, the first time I read it I didn’t like it because it didn’t make a bit of sense to me.  It took a second reading, but now I can see more of what you’re trying to say.  I like the parallel you make between minds and mines.  I assume the “vast assorted articles” are the wisdom you see in others, possibly also a pun the articles on the blog. I’m still not sure what you meant by this:

“I find a rag of watered well.

I take it up and grip it firm

The ends don’t meet, they leave the worm.”

Overall, I think you did well.  You have nice cadence and word images. 👍
