i like how this extends the ideas laid down in the previous haiku. the first stanza is breath-taking, the images are goregous. and the stark harshness of the explaination behind the symbolism is an excellent contrast and lends weight to the feeling behind the poem. you've continued this interplay throughout the poem with skill. great ideas, great work.

i always wonder why people of the inbetween could never congregrate

it isnt because they are not there

but everyone is too far and in between

and eventually prefer loneliness.

I enjoyed this piece. You used some really vivid imagery; I think the imagery was the strength of this poem. I also think that the first stanza was the weakness—it just didn’t seem to do or say much, at least not when one reads on to the following stanzas that are so much more interesting and rich with images and meaning. The second stanza is really excellent and the rest of the poem is great… the first just seems inconsequential compared to the rest of the poem. Keep up the good work!
