    It was either in Harper's or the Atlantic Monthly several years ago. I believe the poet was a man. I can't remember it, but there is imagery I recall:

    Something about how hugging sister had some bunting, buffer to keep them separated, safe. But hugging brother was (something) like: a fall off a cliff requiring wings.

    The ending imagery was of soot or ash in the air. Rising from a chimney. Perhaps like a bird of some kind.

    I can't really remember more than this.

    I know exactly who wrote that poem. It was written by a guy in my sociology class at Foothill College back in May of 2002. His name was David Otero. He went to Foothill College at that time and wrote it for a Sociology assignment. Don't remember exactly what the assignment was but I know exactly who wrote it. He was a totally funny guy. Surprised everyone when he read it to the class. Completely showed another side of himself. Not too many guys I know write like that. If anyone knows of his whereabouts, give him a shout-out! And you know prof's make sure that it was not plagiarized.

    Hi, can you please help me to find the writer's name for this poem, its starts with these lines:

    " I closed my eyes, didn’t want to see
    Believed the lies you said to me
    You played a game, I played along
    But now I know I was not the only one

    You treated me just like a fool
    I was in love, you shake my soul
    The way you touched, I never knew before
    Can’t lose you, no, don’t close the door"

    Hello, can you help please. I'm trying to find the name of the writer of a poem which starts with the lines:

    Where is he now I cannot say
    The world has many a place of light
    Perhaps the sun's eyelashes dance
    On his, to give them both delight,
