The Road, Blindness, and Oryx and Crake are all really wonderful. Blindness, especially.

I really enjoyed in this. I think your choice of enjambment added some nice energy and momentum to the poem as a whole. On top of that, the consonance and assonance make reading it sweet to the ear!

I really enjoyed this, I like how you captured social life amongst the sprawl of the marketplace. And you managed to have a consistent rhyme scheme that didn't seem forced or contrived.

Nice work...

Just a bump that I edited this and added a few more lines along with some previous line shifted around.
