The juxtaposing opposites in our universe make for a mechanical and beautiful life.

i think everyone agrees that the beginning makes very little sense. i guess you are just smarter than all us simple poets (; but i really like the middle. infinity. its a good word (:

I enjoyed reading and re-reading this poem until I thoughtI understood it, all the while knowing that I probably didn't! What I got from it was that, dark, light, hot, cold, in the mechanical life they are simply represented by symbols or signs and that they are all the same. In a way I see the beauty in that, even if that wasn't what you were getting at.
I love the concrete form of this poem, even if I am not very familiar with the style. Over all, I liked it! :)

If this is to show the beauty and mechanics of life, as the description says, I think you missed out on the beauty a bit. However, it is a really interesting concept, to use the form to illustrate the mechanical side rather than just what you say. I don't think it's enough to only focus on that though; while there is something beautiful about mechanics, it isn't the only type of beauty.
Other than that, it did seem a bit contrived. I did quite like the title in relation to it, but the poem lacked something for me.
