These ghazals strike me as very strong. They are finely crafted, and I believe they are genuine and true to their author.
The ghazal brings disparate images together: like the lyric, it is compressed and musical. As it moves toward a unified statement about a particular experience or group of experiences related by time and subject, it becomes something else.
