Self-Portrait At 28


I know it's a bad title
but I'm giving it to myself as a gift
on a day nearly canceled by sunlight

    Hmmm. I read the first few lines. It didn't cpature my attention at all. If he thinks it's a bad title he should change it...but then it's not for us...so I didn't care to read it...I don't care about his negativity or his knife. This poem was going no where. He switched from what his title was which had nothing to do with the main theme of his poem, or at least had nothing to do with the knife in his hand. I don't believe poetry should be judged, but that's because some poetry is just not meant to be read. It is so personal to the person that writes it that it is not meant to be understood, not meant for anyone to be able to glean any good from it, and doesn't care for who might read it. This is one of those poems. It is what it is and it would be a waste of time for anyone to read it, really. At least it is for me. (Report) Reply

    What a wonderful poem. I was held by every word and if it had been twice as long I would have still been gripped to the end... Imagine getting a birthday present like this from your muse. (Report) Reply

    Interesting Poem, a sort of thinking aloud talking head.I would have probably been tempted to edit it, but perhaps the truth would have been edited as well and that wouldn't do, the truth is everything, when lies are removed. (Report) Reply
