timmy,

The second strophe resonates most with me. This is where the poem

really begins to happen:

"you were given life & visitors

came: sisters, neighbors, teachers, 

men in books—

they all watched

you grow, gave you advice

concerning geometry, red

licorice & white panty love"

 

I also like:

 

"...spill

yourself onto the floor,"
