Commodity. Comments

Rating: 5.0
A civil war rages onwards
between my mind's freedom vs. my
will's institutionalized cage.
Every action premeditated to appease

Kim, I like this. The title acts as a statement and the poem a definition (classic economics: Mills? Marx?) . There doesn't appear to be a structure to this but the flow of it is great. The occasional alliteration works well in giving the reader the feeling of repetition, however occasional. The reduction of a socio-economic construct to the subjectiveness of the self works well. The irony that this form of enslavement is a result of freedom is emphasised by the freedom of the way the poem is put together.

Oh how the free spirited suffer in the daily grind! I can identify with this poem, and your use of language impressed me. I happened to stumble upon this poem, but now I will continue to read your others. Take care, -HD

Hmmm...101 - familiar number... Commodity - an article of trade, but does one become it by own choice, or is there somebody else who does it just for fun?
