    dotsThe New Blind Kinddots


    by Ethan Brody

    Everywhere the sun strikes,
    A new blind kind can be seen
    Shambling their feet and
    Looking down ...

    Emotionless people,
    Uninterested zombies,
    Sitting somewhere
    In a different realm of existence.

    A quake can be felt,
    A truck can be heard,
    A woman drop dead.
    But they flick ... flick ...

    Loved passed by
    A new blind kind
    That pitifully prefers
    Only to see "you like this"

      I liked what I felt when I read this aloud and to me this is what the essence of writing, of art, is. What one feels when a piece is experienced. The picture is a great accompaniment to this piece. The pretty girl in her own world walking through the real world not noticing it. Like walking down a hall with the lights shut off. Blind to what could be discovered around her. The second stanza needs more. The zombie and emotionless people should be hashed out. What makes them so? The first stanza is my favorite because for me it is the most visual. The sun light spreading, illuminates the subjects of your piece. Their shambling feet, their looking down. Zombie like. I think the clay of this piece should be made with more stuff. I think this has a lot of potential to be great. Revise.

      The second stanza is good but the poem does stand without it quite self-reliantly. Upon reading the poem several times, the second stanza sounded like an editorial comment which spells out in plain language what they other stanzas are already driving at. It does not "take away" from the poem. But it does not add anything spectacular either. That being said, it is entirely up to you whether to keep it or not.

      I enjoyed this piece and the message you were trying to convey. I was expecting a bit more though. The poem seems to just stop. I feel like there is more to say, like the poem is yearning to have it's say and you kind of held back. I feel that you could have been a bit more descriptive. I loved the title " the new blind kind" It really caught my attention, more or less because it was a so different.

    Emotionless people,
    Uninterested zombies,
    Sitting somewhere
    moving hands ….

    this part in particular could have used a bit more meat, words that were a bit more alive. There is something to say here about the species that is evolving, the new kind of people, those who are blind. What are they blind to? the uninterested zombies part was a bit weird, what are zombies interested in? the flesh, so maybe this new kind of people, those who are blind are not necessarily like zombies. I know where your going with it but it's not like zombies are interested in the world around them, they are usually interested in just one thing, they are a bit narrow in they're focus.

    A quake can be felt,
    A truck could be heard,
    A woman drop dead.
    Someone …shaking fingers …

    I like this stanza... now this really flows well in the third line you could use " a woman drops dead. but the last bit, "someone.... shaking fingers... I did not get.

    I honestly like your idea and your poem. I do feel you need to develop it a bit more. Don't be afraid to use more words, write what you feel and I'm sure with a few edits you'll bring this poem to life.
