A great write Chris and I know the feeling well, much to my wife's chagrin.

This is a really wonderful poem, Chris. Biting and beautiful, full of deep insight but not so lofty as to miss the casual observation. Personally (imho) I think stanza two is a poem itself, and seems nearly revelational. I can't say enough about this terrific write...you 'da man. Potd suggested. Just brilliant. Thanks so much.

I was expecting something staccato given the brief lines, but this came out incredibly smooth somehow. I won't bother quoting favorite lines--they'd just turn into stanzas on me. Great work.

Oh i like the flow of this poetic river, Chris. As said by others, lines that i want to quote become whole stanzas, and still cannot touch my appreciation for the whole!

The form in this is just phenomenal, working so flawlessly alongside your usual attention to voice and imagery. One of your great ones, no doubt.

3 am -- dead time? Aside from that irrelevant perspective issue, a sublime cerebral excursion, with diversions to go :>

This is fantastic. I actually shivered with the last four lines. Such a perfect summation.

Wonderful poem Chris.

Maybe it is my love of the dark side, but I DO love that second stanza. It seems I have visited that place too many times myself over the years. This poem has a mysterious quality to it and gives me a nice peek into another crease in the terrain of Chris. Beautiful, my friend. Thanks.
