Iguana & Cobwebs

iguana witnessed
abruptly halting tree trek
hues shifting for you
            designer cobwebs
         await to entice their guests
            prey tell who is there?

As far as being published, do cute and clever commentaries have any place in a sea of cute and clever commentaries?  Does this attach itself to a great market?

Don't get my wrong, this gets a 10 from me, on this website for style, and because I like iguanas, but its not saying anything we don't already know.  Bluntly (and I'm sorry), I would not buy your book because of it.

your word/sound play is enticing like a hue shift
design in fractal art -- the kind of cobweb that
would entrap me, make me wanna break free
and keep coming back to for the sheer thrill of

...yaum, yOm...

Thanks for your diverse array of candid comments. I appreciate hearing the truth of what others think. Friends are often times too subjective, that's why I like this venue to share my words.

i am not a fan.

outside of the sonics in L1, this is clunky description forced into form and ended on a pun.

issues with diction, syntax, and tone.

strophe 1 feels contemporary, strophe 2 smacks antiquated.

Although Iguanas or Monitor Lizards are not Chameleons, they do to some degree change color. At least the green iguanas do. Their skin is darker in the sunlight and lightens in the shade. Their heads turn dark grey, almost black for some individuals, and the stripes on the iguanas body becomes very apparent. Many iguanas have brown marks that appear on their back that are never seen inside, and give the iguana a sort of leopard-like markings. The reason they darken is because dark colors absorb more of the sun than light colors do.

five-seven-five is
a number; take one and weight
four your turn, hehe.

  I was doing a little of research looking at some other buy essay service. and this is the fifth link to the search essay about this good topic as relayed by Google… so you are conforming that you are add a free service for them and improve their traffic. So if you purely support this then you should take the money  but if your estimation has crack at all and you’re against it then you should believably eradicate them. But it's still yours to clinch.
