    I love the movement of this piece, the rhythm and the fluidity. The repetition is perfect for this (like an echo) . It definitely makes the poem. The last two verses are my favorite, due to outstanding rhythm.
    Overall, it reminds me of Romeo and Juliet: 'O, that I were a glove upon her hand that I might touch that cheek! ' which, in my opinion, isn't really a bad thing.
    So, I can honestly say, this is the first hairbrush poem I've come across that I truly enjoy. (Report) Reply

    Very nice lyrical piece, Jake. Check out Li-Young Lee's 'Braiding.' It comes at it from a different angle, but you might like it. (Report) Reply

    Love the dancing music of your cornrows...bought your first soft babybrush yet, Jake? Very romantic. (Report) Reply
