The point is benjamin, would not want your praise or criticism. Benjamin would want the wise and foolish, the childish and mature, you and me to understand what he feels his poetry is. Please Sit down.

The poem sounds good even in patois. Benjamin just reminded me Paul Laurence Dunbar's poems which are written in dialect

Sorry, folks, but the only reason this dyslexic ex-burglar is printed is to appease the PC-agending setting sensibilities of the very same pseudo-liberal white establishment that has made a running farce of modern poetry, with its editorial incompetence. And it's also the same establishment he uncreatively takes swipes at constantly in his poetry, i.e. the one he owes his living to. Hart Crane he clearly isn't, and talent he has not.
