and i used
"i feel..."
lines as if itemized and categorized
you would listen
yet my words remain,
unclaimed baggage
on airport carousels

you asked for
walls that i may be
your museum-
a ton of bricks on a leash

like the way time slows
or stops
in crisis
[or math exams]
this is falling in
slow [e]motion

how you transcended and linked together the mundacity of ordinary things with the overused trite poeticness of what we try and create; the pedestrian 'i feel......' lines. ..such a clever one you are~ you made the words themselves slow. . .warp...a tesseract of vocabulary and images that are beyond what we perceive them as;
i get so flustered trying to pinpoint your exact notions/symbols/meanings b/c when i read your work, it seems as if theya re everywhere and so slightly lit up so that only the REAl reader [not the common ordinary one] can even attempt to decipher them; they are thinktanks of dreams, encyclopedias of beauty and gracefulness. . . such envy i have
this is such a analytical precision write that makes one STOP

O Cedric, you have outdone yourself here. I hope you don't mind if I save this, you've concocted so many images here that I just want to snack on again and again. Sorry I can't be more articulate than WOW.

J this is excellant work, I can feel your frustration and your pain and the images you conjured with the use of "I feel" line as well as the time example were great.
