    Reading the Fetus I am questioning the grounds of poetry... Though I believe most your poems are very mature, I think for that specific one you still haven't decided if you want people to read it or feel it as you felt it when you wrote. The latter happened to me, and therefore my objection. I would have liked to be warned, and so far I believe poems warn you somehow by possessing that very character of 'a poem'... But then again, art doesn't have to be admired, not even accepted, to be good.

Best Poem of Crystal Dawn


A newborn baby is held in his mother’s arms.
Another newborn baby is looking at his charms.

Held in his mother’s arms, hoping he will be lucky.
The other newborn is already saying, “Ducky.”

At a playground,
A toddler can only find a broken swing.
The other is treated like a king.

In second grade,
The child’s family doesn’t even have a phone.
The other child has a condominium to call his home.

In sixth grade,
The child walks alone.
The other child always has a friend on the phone.

In ninth grade,
The child is smoking weed.
