    I thought it was very amazing. In your poem Study Like A Rock the words were a little hard to see and the title has an error. The poem Time Gone Like The Wind, a few of your lines are repeated RIGHT after each other. Child Labor, second line, I think it would be better as "places on the globe". I really like your poems. I know you had to follow specific structures, but some lines could be shortened or lengthened accordingly. For example, you sometimes have 2 syllables followed by 13. But these poems are great and they really bring to life what you're trying to convey.

    HA It sounds almost like you stole some of them or something (from my perspective, and I KNOW you didn't). Most of them are so serious and poetic and not-the-way-you-sound-at-all, and then every once in a while there's some random metaphor that is really, really, funny and reminds us of the actual writer. "BRAIN IMPLANTS LET MONKEYS MOVE DOPPELGANGERS OF DAT" I could not stop laughing at this. "At your hypnotic chain. From us you took Our ability to peg away at piles of paper tents, Morn we mourn homework, the half-painted fence" I can tell you put a lot of symbolism and consideration in that metaphor. Because homework is so much like a fence. "Topples and dwindles, oh my. Ozone’s weak threads come undone, Pollution is not all fun." I like the random "oh, my" in a desperate effort to rhyme. And then "Pollution is not all fun." Because, you know. It's a little fun. "Others- ninjas in the soft nights." Mentioning ninjas in a... More > serious poem is a good way to make someone die of laughter. "A chair is crooked, The table mahogany. I push it in We can all work for A better world and table." I like how it's about a chair for four and a half lines, and then becomes metaphorical and deep in the last word. And then the line "I push it in." So randomly dramatic. Also, I love some of the subjects of your poetry. Neutrinos. Facebook. Debt. George Bush. Procrastination. WOW. And so....many....pictures....dear....lord....IT MUST HAVE TAKEN YOU LONGER TO FIND ALL THOSE PICTURES THAN WRITE THE POETRY In conclusion, most of the poems are so good it doesn't even sound like you wrote them (Salutations to Ares Ohmygod I swear to god YOU STOLE THAT it sounds like you're from 1942 IN A GOOD WAY)(I also really like Hatchling)(Waiting is pretty good too)(Dewdrops on a mosaic is pretty and pretty awesome), and then some of them are really, really funny. So good job. (Although your love of Apple, environmentalism, and general liberal-ness made some of them hard to read) (And the ozone layer has almost nothing to do with global warming, and in some cases actually alleviates it slightly) Also, I am sorry I just made fun of four of your poems, but I think the randomness is good. It enhanced my enjoyment. (I was also jealous that you write so well and my book is 150 pages of failure and disaster.)< Less

    I like your analogies and wordings (as well as the diversity in them), interesting and understandable ways to think of things and it gave different feelings inside...a lot of them I found easy to relate to (e.g. Inequality). A few -really- small parts I was a little confused on but I liked all of them. I want to mention a few of the ones that really stood out to me more, though, let's see. :p I loved your "I've Never Seen the Sky Blue" poem, it flowed together really well and the wording and its message were strong. Also liked the flow of Earth Churns and Rumbles... GM Crops with the tiger pawing a lily...:) Gave me a feeling of caution. Sardines...Arch of Autumn's end was like a shot...Lovely things can disappear quick... Caught me there with Grape Fields heheh was eating grapes...;p I really liked your poems from the "Kindness and Hope" section, though. Much lovely feelings from there. c: I would have included a bunch more that I noted along the way (still in... More > mind :D) but I'd just be listing a lot of them. ♥ Lots of great messages through your poems, keep up the awesome writing yo! :)< Less
