I think I see where you're goin' with this poem but I can't quite grasp the concept...it's certainly clever, the wordplay involved but I'm still not completely trackin'.  However, you're a good weaver of words with lots of potential...

This is rudimentary.  Anyone can find words whose last syllables are phonetically similar to other words.  Although I appreciate your attempt to manipulate language on a structural level, this is less like a poem and more like a list of superficial, linguistic observations, without cohesion.  Because you are aware of the possibility of dismantling language, you do have potential.  I just don't think that you've reached it with this particular poem.
