    Hi Barton,
    There is a mysterious air to your poem and i like it. Maybe it is my inability but i really like to understand your poem better. i would love it if you could explain it to me. It is beautifully written no doubts and hence captivating. Who are these hidden angels?

      those rare ones, maybe, that are quiet…and draw the short straw…and become scarecrow.
