It's really good. I like the adjectives :) haha.

In response to your comments on my poems-thanks. :) And about the fire one, it wasn't supposed to be particularly smooth. I think I wanted it to be awkward. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing. And the 'feat' thing was on purpose-kind of a double meaning to the metaphor of the poem, but don't think that was very clear lol.

Again, I really like your poem. It has a certain rhythm that's-to use your word-haunting. Especially in the second verse. Very nice work.

i'm not sure what this is describing.. except manual labor.

but then again, my mind hasn't been very sharp lately.

lovely imagery. it amazes me how you pack so much into so few words

(and i like how you think my writing is more.. stable haha)

also, really like the somewhat repetition of a few words, but then you change some of the words so it's not completely the same :)

i really like this one.

then again, i like all of them.

i really like the 'hear the cheerful chatter that's not from here' line. very nice.

very good imagery throughout the whole thing.
