Flesh is
like dough. Knead it.
Let it yield beneath your
fingers. Brand it with your palm. Leave
a scar.

I think that your poem is extremely effective by the length of it in relation to its message. Although I generally write longer poetry, this poem seems to draw me to it. As absurd as that may sound, I can't word it any better than that. The poem is made very powerful by the short sentances and hard-hitting message behind them. Congratulations, its excellent.

This poem seems very violent to me, very threatening - but in a good, effective way! The short sentences are really effective. And it makes me wonder, whose flesh?

I don't really know anything about poetry, but I think it's brilliant.
