some wonderful imagery and use of language. i especially like the line : 'The graves gaze steadily back, squatted like small children'. forlorn but intricately painted scene. good poem! :)
oh - i will look up sufjan stevens

again, like 'The Ghost in the Lake' this is very atmospheric but very much prose, you would probably be good at short stories.
I don't know if this is a particular style you have tried to employ but i do feel that the art of good poetry is choosing not only every single word, but also it's careful arrangement within the overall piece (easier said than done, lol). prose detracts from this - don't get me wrong prose can be very poetic and it can be a fine line to tread.
I haven't read enough of your stuff to pass an evaluated comment but the minimal placement of your van gogh poem is a much better style.
