  1. Absolutely wonderful. I would add that I don’t think I’ve ever come across the word ‘henge’ used in poetical context before (probably say more about me being poorly read than I care to admit). Brilliant stuff.


  2. “freed of the guilt borne by souls
    it dispatches in swarms
    on the backs of sleek blackbirds
    winging into the storm”

    This vivid description of the uncertainty of Death is both mystical and accessible. And, instead of “flying into the storm” you choose “winging into the storm”, which adds a twist of semantic ambiguity. Great work! This is my favorite poem of yours…so far.
