Wow how could so many totally irrelevant, inarticulate, and down right
stupid responses could come from such a great piece of poetry thats author
has won millions of prizes, been sucessfully published, national known and
just a great writer. Wow i'm shocked by how people don't know about the
freedom, symbolism and deeper meanings in poetry. what, are you guys in
kindergarden or something? it's just poetry not whatever the hell your
thinking of!

Duhamel's text is a POEM. The line division, the syntax, choice of just the
right word . . all of it makes it a poem.
Where I see some of the commenters stuck (other than taste for the
subject or taboos) is how the narrative procedes through action and not
The line is thin, if it exists at all, between evocative prose and
poetry. But this poem is open to poetic exegesis. Where I start my own
critique is on the question of economy of the action depicted and nouns
(objects / props) introduced. Does Ken need a blow-up doll in this poem?
On this point: that's entertainment folks! Another author would probably
choose to gross some readers out a great deal more. Such a poem becomes
facile when the scenes are built around objects thrown in as easy clichés
-- but go figure, Ken and Barbie are easy clichés from the git-go.
I enjoyed the poem and will go back a learn from how just the right
words work to advance the action and keep the ideas from jamming up the
poet's intent.
Keep writing, D.D., please.

That imagery was f'n AWESOME! To me, that was a brilliant capture of the
irresponsible and destructive nature of love.

Not a poet from United States
