I think another slight correction is needed - the title of the poem is 'Clenched Soul' not 'We Have Lost Even'

I would never have caught that.  I know almost nothing about poetry but even to me, "We have lost Event this Twilight" sounded a bit unpoetic. 

Good catch Chooky.

I do have to say though, after reading through some of the opening and closing lines, some of it is appealing.

Especially the funny ones like:

I Have Eaten the Plums That Were in the Icebox
   ends with   

Forgive Me They Were Delicious So Sweet and So Cold

That one had me cackling. I always thought William Carlos Williams was unreadable (I thank US high school for ruining poetry for me), but I can 100% get behind the above sentiment.

Fixed the title.
I do like 'Just to Say'.  Discovered it through Factacular not through school. Can't remember any of the poems we studied in High School.
