To me the poem ain't POETIC. A poem can be many things or many forms but one thing it got to have is RHYTHM and this poem don't got it.

This poem is what I call Stanziated Prose. It is a form that is popular today because lots of so called "poets"--black as well as white, don't got no rhythm and are too lazy to write stories or novels and so they write these snippets and call them poems.

Like I said, she has done better.
