lol, like blackbirds upon a telephone wire? that's awesome you have to examine it to understand it that's alot of depth. and i love the writing style i'm glad you stick to one thing and i'm also glad you sort of told me off so i could research this kind of poetry and learn to love it which i am lol
You do a great job of evoking an image with words; and, while I disagree about your stuff reading like Dickinson, I'd take that as a great compliment. After all, she's one of a pretty elite handfull of American poets who changed the literary world.
I really don't think that I'm copping Dickinson in any way. I write short poems which is about where the similarities end. If I were copping her, I'd use a lot more dashes and capitalize words a lot more.
