    I liked this poem very much...in the end, I guess, everyone becomes homeless and the feeling of being at home is only a short-lived illusion... (Report) Reply

    Virtually flawless stanzaic structure & cadence highlights and fuels this fine display of contemporary free verse.
    Close-out line speaks volumes & delivers with poetic power...~FjR~ (Report) Reply
