The Difference Between Life and Death

Call it Sweet Princess Ltd.
Call it Drums Along the Eastern River Ran.
Call it My Hope My Lies.
Call it I'm Ugly Inside.
Call it This Monster Forgets My Child Grows.
Call it Solar Anus. 
Call it Twilight is My Chariot.
Call it Broken Hearts are Anarchists. 
Call it Love is Massive. 
Call it It’s Too Late to Dream of Nothing. 
Call it Sophie Loves Me.
Call it Too Much Time Will Make A Suitcase Out Of You.

Where is the imagery? The metaphors? You are missing those, I think this piece is funny to me because it seems to be a mockery of life and death, whichare opposite ends. Interesting though. Thanks for sharing.

Not much imagery, I'll give you that. But only not much...

Drums Along the Eastern River Ran
Twilight is My Chariot (also a metaphor within a metaphor)

And, speaking of metaphors. Every line in this poem is a metaphor. In fact, a specific and explicit metaphor (call it...). If it's mocking anything it's the protracted metaphors used in poetry.

Ok I didn't see it that way, I can accept that.
