The following comments are for "DUFFEL BAG" by gomarsoap
I don't know exactly what is going on but I get a lonely sense- I read several times and for me, was reminded of seeing homeless people wandering the streets of D.C. and Bridgeport, two cities I was very familiar with. Saw Vets with duffel bags, and others "lost" on the streets. Am I even close here?
The images are gripping.
nice to read you-

Well, well. I was attracted to this poem because I have hit a "wandering stage" and the personal feeling I get when I read the word "duffle bag" is traveling.
However, this is not the feeling I have after reading the poem.
I am just left here thinking about seeing the one shoe on the side of the highway without another shoe.
Anyways, I liked it. :) I don't exactly know if the first few lines really fit with the rest of it, but maybe it does in some subconcious way that I'm not seeing.
