    very sad and beautiful, Ivy. The details you choose to give us about your brother are extremely well chosen, and set us up for a big shock when you finally tell us he's 'no longer here', because we care about him, and about your relationship with him. But you also administer the shock gently, and we're left with your relationship with him as an angel, literally or symbolically/feeling-wise.
    I think this is my favorite poem of yours, so far.

    I love the way you present this so straightforwardly and underplay the affection - it makes it so much more powerful and touching at the end. Congratulations and thanks. (Report)Reply
