Thank you. I used to be quite the cliché-hunter. Every time I read something that rang "too familiar" I avoided it like the plague. And then one day it dawned on me: it's not what you use, it's how you use it. It's taking the mundane, the overused, and turning it into something unique to you.
You have a poem of clichés. And yet it's still its own poem. It stands out, and is beautiful.
