I am unsure of myself: I swear there are allegorical secrets cast here. I was never aware of my own funeral feast, in shreds and tossed into the wondering well to silently cry.   Dreadfully dead and alone, we can only hope to hone clarity.

I plan to: Since it is a new style for me (which is proving fun), it is only a matter of seeing what manifests, if anything. But I have the habit of dropping whole stories midway.

This is fantastic!  Let me: This is fantastic!  Let me say it again . . . FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.  Like two of my favorite prose writers, H.P. Lovecraft and James Tiptree, Jr., you create, by implication, a huge backstory with a few well placed, and very coy (and provocative) references.  And you do this in a brief poem---far more accomplished than mere prose (no disrespect intended to H.P. or the Tip o' the Tree).  Yes, I sure do want to know what happens next in the poem's narrative; but I also want to know more about this science fiction world you have created.  Can this become a long sequence of poems?---I hope so.  And will it demonstrate your obvious Poetic skill (which we see, here_?---I know so!!!

That Would B A December rose: Southeast Michigan, winter falls. One day sunny & okay temps, then ten degrees and a strange iced wettish substance appears and makes all things colder. Go figure. December roses bow to the season, molt their petals, singing the oldies tune about autumn leaves drifting by my window.   :D

Thank you.  I apologize for: Thank you.  I apologize for the two typos that I missed upon posting the poem; I have corrected them, although I wish I had noticed them prior to your visit to the poem.  As always, your comment is entirely accurate and precise in going right to the point of the poem---which was to describe him the perspective of what was absent, first, until he enters the line of sight.  I am very grateful that you commented on this poem, which was something of an experiment for me.    Thank you so very much for your customary and always insightful understanding.  This is one of the many reasons I consider you a mentor.

Nectar: This is a classic example of a wonderful erotic poem as opposed to the porograhy displayed on this site which purports to be "erotic poetry."  Great write.

An intense and much-needed: An intense and much-needed lesson in tolerance and empathy. How true that we should listen more and judge less because we have no idea what struggles others are going through.    "Those eyes have stories to tell"  Well said! Beautiful guidance.

Enigmatic Voyage: A jazz tune by Ramsey Lewis - I hear it as I read this poem. There are waves breaking on shores. Or Ad dry ventures in Paradise a 60's tv theme. When heaven  happens, angels will request a reading of this one often, so put it to memory ;D

The perspective makes all the: The perspective makes all the difference in this playful new angle. Focusing on clues and letting the reader imagine what he was—or wasn't—wearing on that idyllic shore was a sly way to set the mood for his appearance and a clever way to show the impact of his absence.    Beautiful anticipation.
