I find that you use female characterizations a lot, especially with the generic naming scheme. it has a general effect, one that reflects well with the gist of your poetry.

this, as usual, was fantastic.

the last three lines are so great. i love the "stars and starlings" part too. it's a very thought provoking piece, and i really appreciate that.

The mademoiselle really is a lovely character. You capture her fragility, gentility, and vibrancy so well. In this one, my favorite part is the last three lines. I can really relate. Great job- can't wait for the next installment!
