    Pablo Neruda is a sexualized version of William Williams. There is nothing difficult about his poetry. The beauty is in his ability to take the mundane and make it near super natural. I don't know how Pankaj does not understand this work. Neruda is easily a top twenty poet of all time.

    Most of the people here recognize brilliance and citrus essence, the others are locked into
    restricting their associations and sense of word play, and are definitely Constipated.

    First, I don't much understand the poem. Second, why does Neruda have to put sexual references in every of his poetic work?

    Its ok, your other poems like 'A dogs Dead' is better. Tremedously thoughtful! You could be a writer when your older! Your really good! I have gave you a 8. Its a pretty good poem! Even though I am a short term writer. I have had a book published before, with one of my poems wrote in it! You could do that! Thats how good I think you are! Its just this poem that I dont like very much, but your others are amazingly fantastic! Congratulations!
    P.S: The one a bout The Dog brought tears to my eyes!
    You are a wonderous writer!
