"Magpies" and "Loud Neighbors."

Both of these poems are out there,
into the realm of abstract thought,
sychronicity, and mysterious links.
I posted them both on FFTR, of course, and read them several times. MAGPIES comes off as the deeper of the two for me, taking us
to landscapes never seen. LOUD NEIGHBORS is an urban message, yes, but with your rural upbringing, still it rings with the
alacrity of a poet submerged in
the senses of the city. Yet I wondered if it would work, on a slightly different scale there
in Riceland?

Thanks. I got some compliments on "Magpies." Not sure why. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to why certain people like certain poems and not others...
