Review of Whom You Love by Joseph O. Legaspi

Whom You Love by Joseph O. Legaspi (pictured) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on April 11, 2013.  The poet chooses a rambling, rhythmless free verse that pours forth images and musings about his homosexual lover in a punctuationless stream.  I find the poem to be personal or private rather than universal and therefore diminished, perhaps, because it was shared.
