the fun in making bold statements (as I do) that I 'got it' is that:
-I probably did NOT (heh heh)
-and so, the ball is tossed back to the poet who must need now to disabuse me of my error in parsing his abstractions.. and this is a bit ticklish, yes? Well, he makes me work to "get" the message and justify his -unatractive, jarring cancer line-... so.. call it commentator prick-back.. in a sense.
Yeah! I get the poem completely! (probably not) and so, b. needs to say who understood the poem better: himself, or this schlump-me at bat now.
