one suggestion - though i'm not big on censorship - i'm an English teacher and itdrives me CRAZY when parents want to ban books for the sake of a few taboo words - i wonder if the raw and totally accurate - but not socially acceptable - words in parentheses at the beginning (title?) might be alienating to the people who you most strongly want to read and understand the rest of the poem.

just a thought.
