I liked my little hole,
Its window facing a brick wall.
Next door there was a piano.

    The last two lines -what to say? Perfect! ('Srce mi je ko obješena lauta: č im ga dotakneš, ono odjekne.') (Report) Reply

    Enjambment? May be...
    It lacks both rhyme and reason.
    It is a lesson..
    In what is knot poetry..
    Crude strings of *sob* imagery

    So near it was, I thought
    For a moment, I was sobbing myself.

    These lines are such an impeccable example of the true power of enjambment.
    Many facets can be seen in just one phrase. Fantastic! (Report) Reply
