Son of I can't believe it's not a run-on sentence: Q & A

Was the glass half empty
or half full
this Thanksgiving--
when unprecedented
arid warmth
settled over the high country,
oscillating early-season
slope conditions
between icy crunch
and squishy slush
on the single paltry
open ski run;
rendering hiking paths
passable only until noon,
before they melted
into sucking mud;
making
holiday driving
a relative pleasure?

Yes,
both.

  1. I love your title!!! I struggle with them so often - I laughed out loud and had to read it out loud a couple of times. I loved how it sounded when I did that. Well done.

  2. When is a run-on, not a run on? When it is beautifully poetic. Lovely
