front row seats
a spot of white
on Othello's face

    that`s interesting!

    this poem has a strong message -- important is from which place (from which position, point of view) we have a look

    Othello
    in blackface --
    layers of history

    Way to go, Dave!
    Touch of humor, layers
    of meaning...

    hmmm
    that spot, does it express or relate to all things that are not what one think they really are...

    at dawn
    the mockingbird never sings
    from the top of the pine
