Thanks, fm and Hannah!

I have been struggling with my lines lately, they are often obstinate and always want to go a certain way.

Hannah, it thrills me that you find that bit of gray area in the poem--I do think it tucks in the hem quite neatly.


That has to be one of the best opening lines to anything I've read, prose or poetry.

And best of all, it's an accurate indication of what follows........


I love that last line...nice arc all the way through to that..."brings to light much, much less."

That line has great ambiguity..both that it brings to light, simultaneously, much, and less than much...and also that it brings to light very little at all.
