|Reviews for These Are Poems For Him|
| Karbon Okapi chapter 17 . 2/1/2003
All these poems are just fantastic. I love how you write about him indirectly, and in so many different situations, all so richly detailed. Really beautiful. :-D

I'm swooning, I swear I am. The last bit about the violet fields, so resigned, and so beautiful. You are a wonderful poet.

Is the "she" you? but it's beautiful, and so almost romantic I can cry, especially the last line "you say that to all the girls."

(sorry, I am just going through all of them to write halfway coherent reviews, and this is undoubtly annoying, I hope you don't mind.) The part about I did not know you then suddenly strikes me as the very soul of this poem, as if suddenly it all dawns upon you what this man is like, and that pure emotion just rushes right through. Lovely.

was a great mandarin"
One of the best lines of poetry, or literature, rather, I have ever read.

Somehow, I thought the first time about autumn and pirates seemed out of context with the poem, but later on, it sort of blends in just fine, and is part of the seamlessness of the poem. And I love the part about the cutlery, it gives Matt a substance he didn't have (for me, at least) until now.

Will not even attempt to try and coherently review this one. The last stanza, about the newspaper and broken pavements.

"the soup was served
in a bowl of hard eastern
bread, and seeped thru"
I read this and then I realized, hey. I still remember you. *laughs* Sentimentality, I tell you. But the bit about the snowing, this feeling, I can't quite put a finger on it, but you bring it out so well, and you chose your words with stunning accuracy.

around her cigarette-
she put it out-"
These little details, the overall longing in this poem, beautiful, intricate.
| Nilano chapter 2 . 1/26/2003
Wow. *mouth drops to the floor* I think for once in my life I am speechless.
| Kalina chapter 3 . 1/26/2003
