After reading this poem I decide to click over to some of your other work and I must say I am a true fan now. Looking at others comments though I must say your work has much misconstrued and underrated. Let’s take this piece for instance, you take us on this uncertain and almost illicit journey and we end up in places that we didn’t quite expect. You capture the reader with the first line because of it’s connection to the title “ The art of running away” by saying you “ know of places that conquer the art.” This is brilliant to me because it is not just one of those “ I want to get away form life…poems that so many young kids your age are writing, it is much more. It is a poem about escaping into theses departures of nature….and you invite the reader to join along. Great job.
