Yet again, I'm fooled by not reading the description first. I read the poem and thought "wow, well written but, like Seinfeld, it's about nothing... if only you got to the 'where' part". Then I read the description. Excellently written. I understood what you were driving it, even if I didn't know that I did. :)
The only thing I didn't like was the reference to our wandering nomadlike as "swarming". Just seemed counterintuitive. Just me.
