    The words come up in strong patterns of stress with rhythmic variations that function as dramatic levers of tension. This seemingly relentless rhythm projects both a strong sense of urgency and indignation at the many ways concepts and words become the means of our psychological and spiritual alienations, our “incarceration.”

    That language, which was born as a liberator of the human race, becomes the means of imprisonment is both pathetic and sad. That poetry may also be the way out of this alienation is significant and hopeful.

    Very well worked out. (Report) Reply
