 Well, some of your metaphors

 breaking out the old thesaurus
 the use of 'foreign skin' twice
 in two lines and 'moans' twice
 in one stanza could do with
 changing up. Also, beginning
 stanzas 2,3 & 4 with 'l want' is
 a good device, but you need
 to carry it through to the rest

 Surely the sex in the poem is a
 metaphor for death though? It's
 not intended to be read literally
 as a sex act
 Do u read the dominant part?
 Yes, I want to touch [... last
 corner of your soul' - death is
 the ultimate dominator, and
 through the end of life manages
 to reach through to the very
 ends of our souls
 There is a feeling of rebirth, new
 life in this stanza though 'and

 Maybe this is more about loss

Through oral tradition his grandmother instilled a sense of pride for his heritage and an appreciation for storytelling. In his autobiography he wrote: &ldquo;I was unhappy for a long time, and very lonesome, living with my grandmother.
