  1. Thematically and emotionally speaking, there is at least at least two different readings of Robert's well-crafted haiku:

    1 The love story is multilayered/layered with multiple meanings as indicated in Ls 2&3, "another layer/of the onion."

    2 After telling the love story, the listener and/or the narrator feels there is nothing left just like there is no core, no essence, to the onion.
