|Reviews for Shalem|
| in theory 1/30/06 . chapter 1
I saw this on the "Quick Picks" bit and thought...oh I'm sure I know that laydee. So yeah, I opened it. (and incidentally, the title is so much like one mf my favourite byebye's...shalom.) There's been a bit of argument between me and some random person I know who speaks Jewish. Shalom, I was told, meant peace..? He said it means Kingdom. He almost convinced me, I'm confused now so I just say peace :P
*besides the rambling*
This is a tiny, oh so adorable love poem to me. Unshaven faces are so raw, it's like masculinity (something about that word keeps leaping into my thoughts, I tried to write and I couldn't get it out of my head. I think it's in one of your more recent ones! darn ya.) and it's primal. Like the vision of women with huge chests, and flat stomachs and smooth jaws, strong men typically had rough cheeks. I dunno, you got me interested in this now. I had a goatee until recently (I'm dying my hair burgundy-red on Fri, it's tinyshort now too but it was really long)...I looked stronger with, or something.
I think any sense has kinda left my fingers. But still, the image of an unkept guy is something I can identify with.
Shalom, or peace, whichever.
(hope things are going good, I'd email but hotmail is jammed tonight).

Absolutely perfectly lyrical. Every word fits and adds to the subtleness of the mood. Well done. -m-
