    This is one I would like to ponder on for a good while and not give a standard critque on because I feel its unique depth and find it as stimulating as your avatar if you don't mind me saying so

    I personally agree with Mr Nalley. It is one of the most interesting pieces of writing I've ever come across, and is in my list of favourite poems.

    My mistake, the one on my list is another tangent on the first part of the poem called Religion on the Plains. Both have their merits.

    Unfortunately I lack the mental concentration to fully appraise poems with any respectable amount of depth, so I'll comment fully when I haven't just exterted two hours at the gym.

    However I wanted to say thanks, and that I like your style of poetry. Less effort with rhyme and rhythm, more emphasis on depth, metaphor, enjambement, imagery and other things. Although I think you use rhythm somewhat unconsciously. I suppose we all do to an extent.

    Nice seeing you again.

    Sibs, I will never find a poet on this site whom I appreciate more that you. You have a way with words that is just...immaculate.

    I've been reading Frank Miller's Sin City novels lately...this reminds me of them. The way you can take words that are not so beautiful and spin them around my head - soft like a silken cloth.

    "There are rituals as old as spit
    and dung and blood, setting souls in place."

    I love this.

    Thanks for continuing to write :)
