Thank you very much, GreekGoddess. I have thought on previous occasions of using capitalization or punctuation, but I think this fits my style more. However, I'm really glad to hear your input. Thank you for your critique.

Wow, this is awesome! I think it might be better if you added capitalization but other than that I love it! Great job :)

Thank you, Ray. I'm so happy to be in the magazine again, I've been twirling around for a few days in a row. I don't think I'm getting dizzy any time soon, though.

You did it again! Congratulations, and all the best. (Also, I think the poem looks better now, with the spaces removed.)
