I found the imagery here just stunning, Jamie. Words such as "popsicle trees," "gossamer white," and "crystal permanence" all had such a vivid effect, creating this lush landscape in which the narrative was able to deploy. Being as this is in unplugged, rather than nature, logic dictates a definite portrayal of the illusory permanence of life. Nobody is ever truly settled. There are always ups and downs, or simply changes. That notion is, to me, as beautiful as the words you've penned here. Fantastic!
Jamie although I've always loved your work this has stunned even me into silence! Why have I not seen this before? The imagery gave me chills, so vivid, so hauntingly beautiful, not only did you create atmosphere and charm with this piece but also something else that I just can't describe ~ bookmarked and exalted, sheer poetic brilliance in my opinion, this will stay with me for a long time and the best piece of poetry I've read in a very long time.
