Oh, but this is wonderful: takes me back to my childhood, scratching round for something to confess!

Maybe "a slight self indulgent" should be indulgence? (a play on words, as well as for the grammar!)

Julie, this is delightful! Absolutely love it. Love the way the poem models the "sins" it confesses. Love the way you literalized "confessional" poetry. Clever! and beautiful!




We've all sinned. And will. Part of being human. You did confessional poetry differently, and that's okay. To write is the most important thing.


Clever, clever!


"onomatopoetical sin", is that really so bad, Julie?!


Like Viv, you reminded me of the little girl who would kneel in the pew, trying her damnedest to come up with a new way to say:

I fought with my sister, who had it coming,
I sassed my Mother, who didn't
and about that boy who lives around the corner and down the block.....?

Really like your poem, a lot,



confessed in a diffrent way indeed.....and well done Julie


Well written, and oh so original!

A very enjoyable read!
