's review

I have to applaud Donne's...different perspective. The actual flea is really just an extended metaphor, symbolic of the blood union between the speaker and the woman he's lusting after.

I admit it's good, but it was kind of weird and uncomfortable to read. I guess you could say that I'm so 'Donne' with his poetry. Hah. (hopefully my literature teacher doesn't ever see this oops)
