Out of it steps Rissencrest, looking worried about something. He is holding a link ring. He proceeds to city square.
Mark Doty's, Atlantis, is heart-wrenching, thoughtful, powerful, and enlightening. His poems are very powerful as he talks of losing his partner to AIDS, how the diagnosis changed their lives, and also of things he has experience. This is definitely a must read. He uses amazing imagery to make you feel as if you were there watching the scenes he describes; there's no need to try and understand his deeper meaning as he pretty much lays the subject and emotions right in front of the reader. Some of the best poetry I've read, and very, very touching.
