you say 'Now, there is another list I would like to provide you, of phrases used here that are simply meaningless. A scented shroud smelling of hyacinths. A knock did roar. Fish-like. Jelly-like. Snake-like. Cow-like. Onyx “glowed.” Eyes cow-like burned me. Black as bees. Waxen hued. Breasts that are “fish-belly white.” (That one presents a most peculiar visual, I must say.)

you call yourself a poet you cant even see the image these phrases conjure up let alone the import of it all those phrases are completely meaning full as an image of powerful surrealism

    Hmm. I thought you said the poem was gothic. Now you say it is surrealistic. Either way, I think it is pretentious.
