thanks for commenting on my work!

anyway, i think there is a lot to think about in this poem--i really like it especially because of the way you play with the line breaks (it's one of my favorite things to do!!!)

good job!

that's interesting. I've never tried to pick a picture before writing the poem. I like how the random spacing makes it super free verse, its cool. xD
