This is a guess: the original asker is more familiar with Common Lisp than 

So, a fair answer would be to describe picolisp in terms that CL users are 
familiar with.

Sorry, I'm not qualified to do that myself.  But, here are some notes for 

* picolisp is a VM and the mechanics of that VM aren't hidden from the 
programmer--everthing is implementation specific.

* the picolisp implementations are first class citizens, the picolisp language 
is second class.

* A CL specification exists and it is important.  (Is there a picolisp 
specification?  Since I don't know, it probably isn't important...)

* one implementation is canonical: amd64

* picolisp was made mostly by one person.

* picolisp is small, light, and elegant.
