  1. “Change is still in The Closet” … love that line. And you’re right, it is scary. Loving this series of poems.

  2. Not sure if this is common- using song titles- I’ve never seen it. You and your creative genius don’t mess around do they! Great stuff!

    I really love the lineS ” after all this borrowed time / all these trying times”. Really gives the poem a ephemeral feel. I’m enjoying the use of son titles. Looking forward to the next XD

    Powerful stuff, Benjamin! I don’t consider myself an experimental writer, so I love seeing how you work with various nontraditional forms of poetry.
