Some of the poems in the first section really appealed to me. "Shroud," for example. And yeah, let that be a warning — if these were prose fanfiction they'd be darkfic and require many warning tags. I would only read these when you are in a mood to read depressing things.

The middle section, the rock history poetry, lost me almost completely even though I was able to ID most of the subjects. (As in "and roll" rather than geology.) The third section, I don't remember at all.
