I enjoy this delicate exploration of the "habits of daily life". The end extrapolates an excellent thinking from a minor start.

I love the last stanza -- how it suggests so much more than just the situation at hand.

i like the poem, but i do not like its form.

maybe it could help:

driving
my left arm
tanned darker
than my right arm

mirror
two face

the habits of daily life
leave imprints
on skin

just my mere opinion.

Thank you for the feedback! I was using a traditional fixed form for this poem, the Speculum, but it was hard for me to leave those two lines out there longer than the others.

I like the simplicity of the image and then the last lines opens the poem

I liked using this fixed form with a concrete image coupled with a abstract thought. The symmetry of the triangle ratios in the speculum form make me happy.

:hug: thanks for the comment!

There is a beauty and excitement in that form. I also mix concrete with abstract, it fascinates me how the tangible concrete can evoke ideas of perception, definition, that can't be held or touched.
