Reviews for There’s Five Spots to Fill, And None Are Yours
sylvia's syndrome chapter 1 . 6/5/2005
Ooh, very nice. I liked the blunt, direct feel of the poem. When I read this, it was as though I was being addressed personally. The format was effective and the overall message very thought provoking. My only suggestion is moving the ellipse after the word “hope” within the quotation makes, simple because it was more grammatically correct that way. As for interpretation… I’m not sure what this means to you, but to me it brought to mind evolution, Darwinism and creation. The first half of the poem in particular seemed to speak of how, even today, we (meaning humans) have not moved past our most primal needs and the primordial fight for survival. I could be way off the mark, but that’s what I saw! Keep up the good work!
