thank you for your comments - :)
There are a few places this verse can take me, very nicely done when the words can transport like that!
Wow. I love how the language here moves in waves. Actually, I think it reminds me more of time-lapse photography in its feel. Wonderful poem.
I just saw that you asked if it was aggressive. It's aggressive in subject matter and with the waves of crisp, short (usually single) words with hard(er) consonants. They, with the meaning of the words, have a type of violence to them. You also have more hazy sounds, which signal confusion and possibly despair. As I said in the post above, it feels like time-lapse photography--with all the startling clarity going so fast and so forcefully (say on a sunny day--but TOO sunny and bright), alternating with haze, yet all with a flow or rhythm of life. Don't know if that helped. That's my very shortly considered assessment. ;)
