Now this is a poem, That final stanza is mind blowing to me. Take the word 'we' and repeat it 4 times throw in 'were' 3 times in a stanza of only 11 words and make it work. Not only does it work it leaves a lasting impression. Every stanza has me thinking, each beautifully crafted. It makes me think that the poem had twice as many words originally and the poet took her chisel and hammered the unnecessary ones away. I love the layout and the whole thought inducing tone of this piece. Very well written. 10 points.
