I have so far come up with 4 separate interpretations of this poem, all of which carry some deep meaning. It mostly seems to relate to either futility or being psychotic. The imagery is so vivid and the language so simple, and yet it has so many deep meanings around it. It's certainly open to interpretation.
I don't mean to put down your other poems, but this one seems to scan far better than the others. Reading it aloud, it sounds perfect. Try reading it aloud to yourself with all the emotion you think it should convey in each stanza. It really is fantastic.
I can honestly say this is one of the greatest works of art I have ever seen. Stop me if I'm embarrassing you here, but this really is amazing and I don't think I've ever been more impressed by your artistic talents.
This isn't what one expects to read on . This is the sort of great literature that has a first edition released as part of a large anthology bound in leather and gold to be kept sacred by admirers of truly great poetry. Over a hundred years later, people should be studying this at A level then becoming so inspired that they become great poets themselves. They admire your work so much that they would kill for that first edition copy to treasure as their own.
I may have been exaggerating a little, although personally I don't think I was. I am extremely impressed with this. Poetry is largely subjective, so everyone else might think it's crap. But it has certainly won me over and I will be first in line at the bookshop to buy your anthology.
In short: Well done, write more. _

AAAHHH this is excellent! lol I love this. I dunno quite why, but the idea is so original, and it's true that poppies don't 'suffer at poets' hands' much at all. :) Originality is the best. LOL..._ *sigh* Okay, I don't know what to say (there's something new, eh?) but I really like this. Keep writing (and posting)! MJ
