1) i agree with you in that sal, and actually most of the poetry here is really great
2) i love your poem... except for this line: "and saw the magic of not man named Sal" which annoyed me (only annoy is too strong of a word, i mean when i read it, i was forced to stop at it for too long, or something like that
How's that for a critique? and p.s. i'm sure i've "critiqued" your poems before.
