M-16 Round was a good poem to me because the details he uses help me to picture a gunshot going off. It says it ricochets off bone and that is such a vivid image that it grosses me out. The last sentence is so simple yet sums up the whole poem because it says that the boy is dead and all he will hear is quiet because he's dead. It was a short poem but I like short poems because they are easier to understand for me and I get more of a meaning out of it.
