    Personnally I like the simplicity, the first flow of either poem or prose. Maybe it is not very proffessional, but I can feel when a kitterary creation has been worked on and then I loose interest. For me, a message should be the inspiration and an intense feeling about it carried in the poem. It would not occur to me to try and correct a poem and if I give an opinion about it, it would only be what feelings it awoke and to what degree of intensity. Your poem Divorce answers to my likings and I was very moved upon reading it. It is very alive, spontaneous and contains both message and diversity of intense feelings. Thanks.

no back and forth, no ups or downs,
no ...
