It may seem odd to say it, given the subject matter, but this poem is fresh; it turns the romantic sonnet on its head in a spare yet compelling way. The first three lines in particular, and the imagery they conjured, tension they created (no autobiographical moments of course), stayed with me in a way that other poems on this list did not.
