|This reminds me of the tragic story of the two Iranian girls, who died after having been separated by surgery. It was in the early 1980's. It was then a matter of worldwide public interest because their case was one of the most complicated forms of the Siamese condition. I don't know whether you had them in mind but this poem very strongly evokes their memory...|

|Beautiful stream of words...|
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
The stream of consciousness is particularly effective here and the words and phrases bullets driving home. Very finely wrought.

|You remain a shining light of perception and expression on Authorsden. Your work is challenging; a light thrown back from the abstruse surfaces of the human heart.
Another excellent work worthy of much meditation and reflection. I really love your work, Axilea.

|Charlie, as usual, caught the thrust of this fine poem, Axilea,
but I was swept up in your wonderful metaphors...

|This is unlike most of your poems here, in that many of the lines are disjointed-- severed from the body of the poem-- The latter part of the poem is cohesive, pulling images from the front half and gluing them all together in a parallel piece that speaks of hope.
We go from severing to chaining, from cutting edge, to unbroken dreams-- it all comes together. I'm glad such dreams are full of hope. Sisterhood is a darned good thing. I love the repetition of "not yet" in your last line. It is hopeful and promising. --Charlie
