For better or worse, I’ve made the choice to be the first person to highlight this section of your poem and to write a response – or more accurately, to ask you a question…

How is it that you can get 600+ claps for a poem that you’ve obviously put considerable thought into (enough to get lots of highlights) but not one response until this one? As a fellow writer/poet, I find that disheartening.

I liked the self-propelled style of your poem – the way it picked up on a word and explored it in more detail in the next stanza. I found that very effective. Is there a name for this type of poetry? I think I want to give it a try myself.

Thank you for sharing and for giving me inspiration.
