This poem is great! Relationships and feelings about them are complex
thing that are hard to write about. In writing about things like " the few
avenues", she is saying more about the nature of the couple that the actual
streets of the town. I enjoy that kind of subtelty.

Amore, Armand

I would say it is about wanting more time with her better half and the line
about lake is speaking figuatively of her mind...aka
mind grows still... tired of the chaos.
I wonder if the factory isn't actually a cattle slaughterhouse and so she
has second thoughts about what her man does for a living too...hmmmm

Well, I've actually read better poetry than this. She needs to put a
little more work into the poems she writes. I think it may be better if she
would write poems with more energy in them. She could do better.

I personally think that this poem is the best out of all the ones shown
except for The Lake. These two poems that I have mentioned are the best.

The poem Summer Nights is difficult to read. The story is disjointed and
seems to be filled with contradictions. I counted at least half a dozen.
example:(" ... whom I didnt love" - " my love is at home.") ( We Walk the
streets...My Love is at home??? ) ok ..is she with a mysterious lover? or
is he, the tall man, in two places at the same time???etc.. Lake Quiets,
tired of my lies.???what does that mean?? what are her lies? and why would
her life style or choices affect the lake??? I do not personally like the
clipped editing for the sake of rhythm. Not sure what the point of the poem
is .. not focused or clear..definitely not one of her stronger pieces...
