I also enjoyed the play with time - this has a genuine aura about it that reads so well.

This play with time and words, the characters and style you use verse to verse, unique, captivating, amazing storytelling ability. I have read three poems today and I loved them all but this is my favorite. smh.

i like a lot about this but what i love is the scope. i feel you don't often find poems capable of spanning time gracefully and also compellingly, in a way that makes you actually care. this is, and does. and thank you indeed.

It's a rare occasion that a Pathetic POTD deserves to be one. I read this a couple of months back, and I don't think I was up to the searing quality of this. The language used is soft, the style is unconventional, and the content honest: a rare combination. I did wonder though that using this much of fancy style, how much does it detract the readers from getting to the heart of it? But then should a poet wonder about all kinds of readers or not? That always remains an unanswerablish question to me.

WOW, this is one of the great POTD poems. It certainly deserves the posiion and I bet Faulkner is grinning ear to ear!

You are better than most were in times when people actually read and wrote things. Like when writing was a basic skill like back in the Stone Age, and literature was a reality. I love the wording and structure. Also the style sound and pure creativity and rendering of observation . 58 out of a possible 10. Nice work here, Katie. Your poems blow brain matter out of my nose in the best way that could possibly be taken. Keep writing and applying that pure raw creativity and talent of yours. :) Always a pleasure to read your poems.
