Posted on Sat, 08 Feb 2014

A second piece from you - a poem this time and a damn fine one it is too.  There is lots to like in this and I particularly admire the soundless feet image.

However the whole is greater than its parts and all that.  

That you have managed to engender a fabulous relational aspect between the two in the full glare of the Big Top and under the wondrous scrutiny of the throng is really the thing that sets this poem apart from the crowd.  At the close I am left wondering if he was spurned, or denied, or usurped.  I guess that I'll never know for sure but I'm guessing at denied.

This is a great piece of poetry.  ABCtales has a great, new talent on its hands.

I love this!  Welcome to ABCtales Tina.  Can't wait to read more..

Now, I've read it a few times and with each read I have liked it more.  There is a lot going on here.  A fragmented mind at work in terms of the poetic narrative perhaps.  Just needs tightening and a little sorting out.  Even so it's very good.  Hope you're ok with that (obviously subjective) opinion.
