Oooh man that's so fucking dangerous. That is a dangerous piece right there. I love how you can constantly write dangerous stuff. It's the feeling of "the egg on my face" with a limited palette of words. I love how you can constantly play with words and repetition of sounds. I can feel this in my spine.

Augh, this is so physical.

Oooh, nice experimenting... almost seems like a classical "form poem" like a villanelle or pantoum. For help learning new forms, check out the site called "Shadow Poetry" at http://shadowpoetry.com

I can almost hear this poem as a song, over some radiohead type instrumental, and please, take that as a compliment.

This is amazing.  I had to read it twice to catch what you had done with this piece.  Your changes were so subtle.  There is a form of music (can't remember right now the name of it) that does something like this...repeating basic lines over and over with extremely slight changes until the end is completely different from the beginning.  The narrative here is subtile and so well written that, even with so few words, it creates a definate feeling.  very good.  No criticism.
