About "They're Home"
The verse is unique; it is this idea that I have been working with for some time. Whereas most all poetry verse is linear in dispatch, the form I am working with has a duality of appearing to be linear when spoken, but when read the line structure becomes somewhat circular.

More so , if one seeks the definition of the word "cyclic" you will note reference to "epic" and "elliptical"

Whereas poetry can and was written in epic form (Homer, Dante, etc.) I thought perhaps it could be written in an ecliptic form . The lines are joined above and below, metonyms become strained, the language convoluted , words out of text and cliches redefined. The total net of the poem is several versions happening at one time. The poem "they're home" tries to achieve that. The chose of words are intended as they are what they are.

(1): of, relating to, or marked by extreme economy of speech or writing
(2): of, or relating to deliberate obscurity (as of literary or conversational style)
(3) of, or relating to eluded meaning by dual usage of individual line structures of speech or writing.

(1) : indicating by line (as in writing the structure of each line)
