RocketBoom Daily, one of the largest youtube channels, has turned one of my very very short poems (a quatro) into a video! AND it's read in the video by RocketBoom host and youtube celebrity Molly , known by her youtube name MEme MOLLY
What a BIG TREAT for me. Can you imagine any poem getting over 10,000 readers in about 24 hours!!!???? AND being read by MEme Molly!

Rocketboom, is a youtube channel that covers " daily internet culture". They requested short stories. I sent in a poem in a new style called a quatro. A quatro is a type of poem built on haiku. It's a very very very short poem, sometimes as lean as four words, that suggests a comparison between two phrases.
My intent is to suggest quite a lot from the four words, like the simple haiku form suggests much more than the actual event it states.
The video has gotten a good response with almost 11,300 viewers as I write this friday morning.
There has been 318 people who like the video with 71 who don't. And there has been 175 comments (most of them on how Molly looks!).
RocketBoom and all its videos have had over 52 million upload views.
Let me know what you think of the video. Watch and then vote. Then compare it to my own video of the same quatro at
This is fun! And thanks RocketBoom!
