    Feels like science and magic had a fight, killed one another, and the funeral was pretty but depressing. I love this.

    Reblogged this on HemmingPlay and commented:
    the phrase “sun fed children” caught me, and then I fell in love with the rest of this one. Enjoy.

  8. Those photos are haunting. . . they really add to the tone of the poem.

    Great extended metaphor. And I agree with thestoryofblue about the photos…they are quite disconcerting – in a good way.

  10. “The wilderness is young
    Encircled by highways
    And wormy blue rivers”

    Lovely! I was just scrolling through your blog, barely scanning, but had to stop and reread this piece.

    There’s a couple words used multiple times that you could probably replace with something more interesting, (dirt; circled/encircled; likeness; young), to sound more earthy and natural. Some of the word choice feels generic..but otherwise, I don’t have a critique 🙂
