I...wow. This was so full images and symbols, like Frank said, but I have to say my favorite part was the format. I love that hourglass format, it is something that really makes you focus on the poem and the content after you realize what is going on.
I can't say that I fully understand this poem and what it is about, but I can say that it is enjoyable to read. And the images of nature and angels that you present reminds me of 'Omnia vincit Amor' by Carracci. Slightly random, but it does.
*leaves a gold paper crane behind*
So many symbols. So many images. So many half-awakened dreams and thoughts. The most subtle play of construction as an hourglass is seen, the repetition of each line reminds of the sands of time, the finality to every thing in a cyclical way bringing thoughts of at least infinity, perhaps order in a chaotic universe, at least certainly one in which dark things are there at five dollars a head. Let everyone who reads this be very careful, lest they are caught in the wordsmith's words and taken down a journey of your their delight. Or not.
Is more than excellent!
