       No one commented on this the first time, and I would really like some feed-back on this one, thanks.

    dotsUp Through a Crackdots

    So bold to be born beneath the billboards and buildings
    In a canyon of a crack, crooked with age and wear,
    Manifest majesty arises under the sky with its scrapers.

    Rays of imitation seem to mimic down,
    To relive the bloom as a shadow, mirrored on the ground.
    And so lost here on the asphalt, dawn's a disheartened Daisy,
    Weak at heart, weak at mind, limp, lame and lazy.

    In rising it has risked the crushing affects of life,
    A heel from above, oblivious to the brilliance below,
    Falling fatally flat with fate on this floral frame.

      This seems more a comment on society as a whole than a critique of urban indifference. The entire second stanza serves as both the core of the poem and the focal point of the conflict between artificial/commercial and natural/unadorned beauty. It could even be said that the 'moral' of the story lies in the glory of the insignificant and the supreme beauty of the overlooked. Perhaps that's why poetic genious is rarely recognized until after a writer's death. Careful of the alliteration, you have a solid poem requiring only minor tweaking. Nicely done.

      Nice description of the city, it is oppressive in its vanity.

    I like the first lines of your second stanza. To me it seemed to capture very well the way billboard advertisements and the like exploit and degrade human creativity. This helps add to the impression of a force pushing down from above ("the crushing affects of life").

    The thing you talk about being born and raised in this environment is not entirely clear, it seems left up to the reader to guess at (i
    is it just another person or is it human virtue as a whole? etc). I would clarify that. I notice too you seem to like consonance and alliteration, but in a few places you overdo it and it becomes a bit tacky (i last line).

    Good overall. Keep tweaking it and try to clarify.
