Something very indifferent about this poem strikes me as making it sound complacent. I love the way the words feel, coming off the page and into the head, and the images it gives. Wonderful.

Colloquial and very natural. The fast pace of the poem fits the running image identically, and the rhythm of the second stanza is like a musical bridge. It's an easy read and a very pleasant one at that.

You have no idea how disheartening it is to read this when I am under writer's block, and even if I weren't, too untalented to write something of this caliber. Blech.

(*but hugs you for this awesome poem*)

trying to run to mexico

and act indifferent in

two languages.


but kyle, I am sure, is probably

beautiful like the rest,

beautiful in (not) trying

for mexico and
