I like your thought. I grew up in Arkansas (but not that rural of an area), and can see teh family, but the poem didn't really work for me. Maybe as story. Great visuals though.

Excellent! I could imagine the scene clearly. You've painted it, and evoked its many feelings very well.

Wow so much going on in so few lines. Good description poem.
This is good, but seemed a little unfinished somehow. The form ran very smooth, however.

Great title! I love how this poem begins with the "paint-starved porch" and ends with the excellent description of the torn screen door! There is wonderful, peaceful "feel" in this very poetic piece!
