Review of The Figure by Joseph Fasano

The Figure by Joseph Fasano was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on February 20, 2013.  The poet reveals in his notes that his poem was inspired by the helplessness he felt as he watched a close friend grieve after the death of her father.  Mr. Fasano uses dark imagery to create a somber mood.  The repetition in the final line is powerful.
