    A very symbolic poem with a special style...It leaves spaces for the reader to find out the meaning (s) on themselves...thought-provoking! (Report) Reply

    Again-
    What does this poem signify so far? The first second third persons absent despite there are signifier and signified. Who is the signifier? Not single, multiple here. They are the words which the format shows fragmented. But descriptors, the words are related. A rapport interlinked. The blink of social norms are clear here. The social ‘order’ ‘disorder’ suggestive in the text. The meaning of the poem connotatively explicited. Though, seemingly a funny tune but it is a pain disclosure!
    I quote from, T.s Eliot-
    ‘’No poet, no artist of any art, has his complete meaning alone. His significance, his appriciation is the appriciation of his relation to ……’’
    Amazing is, this poem connotative and denoted the fact aesthetically!
    And this the significance/denotatum of this poem.
    well done! (Report) Reply

    yeap dear post modern poet
    I remember that said
    'genres with pastiche, travesty and cliché promotes the fluid '.......
    besides, every words are symbols and they are signifier!

    this is the poem which to me a-> big bang beauty--> expansion with glittering..........touch/dont touch--catch/dont catch........love/dont love!

    the words showing images related/notrelated!
