    don't think you should compromise your style, Sean. i think your strength lies in
    your ability to combine free verse/thought with moderate structure. i'd like to see
    you do away with structure all together. & see what happens. (political views aside)

    as for your 'streets of winter' poems - i dig them. Sus.

    No I don't buy Jefferson's view here and not for the first time either! I think your strength is the ability to mix conventional standards with free verse-type approaches. That should be praised in my view. This poem has a crisp, glacial feel to it in the cut glass consonants used, effectively evoking theme and place. (Report)Reply
