In the Kitchen of the Soul

Layer after layer
Tears come streaming by
Peeling an onion
Gives you a great excuse to cry.

Oh, wow! I think Pound is a little more difficult than Williams, so good job on modeling his style. I like this...it's so perfect. The water drop is so perfect. Wow! A+ work...It's perfect!
