...This was amazing. It had a very quiet, powerful sadness to it. I love how you phrased "coffin calm" and "a world that doesn't know it burned down long ago". Also, I love the imagery with the "neatly lined fields as far as the eye can see". However typo: that "the" has a Y hitching a ride. Otherwise, love it. Quiet and soft, it walks softly and whacks you with a big stick.

I absolutely adore this. It just generally has a really cool concept. I love the idea of remembering phrases rather than pieces of our lives. Your imagery is amazing.
I would still love to submit to Stop The Press, and I think I finally will. I'm an oboist, and January through the beginning of March is incredibly busy with auditions and honor bands. Hopefully I will be able to write something for the next issue.
Sorry for the short review, but Latin homework calls.

Plainly well done. :)

I like this one a lot, and I'm glad you posted it. I like how you used the language, and the habits to form a picture, tying in reality with fantasy. And if it's what I think it's about, you really got the emotions right, the worry, and the fear, and the bravado. *hug* You're totally not a gay tin man *grin*

This one could almost be a story. But I like how you turned it into a poem.
| Sword On Fire chapter 27 . 1/23/2007
Hee. I like the idea of you having a "car-dealer smile". I also like the poem. It's ... I don't know. Soothing, maybe. Like the rhythm of spinning. Words on words under words within words ...
Great. Now, why did you go and make my eloquence shine through like a lightbulb behind thin cloth?

Sweet, slow, and sad. Perfect for a snowy night.

...this is amazing imagery. I love the concept and the language. *HUG*

I can really relate to this poem. It's very well written too; I love how the last line ends the poem abruptly. It makes the reading think further about the piece and its message. Stunning work here, keep writing!

Amazingly written, I LOVE this piece. The detail and thought in this is beautifully brought through by your choice of words. I especially love the line, "(If I hold it all the way out, My nail covers the big dipper.)" Great work here, definatley keep writing.

Neat. Cool and gentle, just like the night. I could totally see the wind dreaming of "me", dreaming of her.

Hiya, just wanted to make a comment. I was rereading your profile and..."The first rule of Fight Club is that we do not talk about Fight Club. Ever. The second rule of Fight Club is that we DO NOT TALK ABOUT FIGHT CLUB" I'm a gonna go be geeky now

Nice. Poignant, touching, and cutting in its truth. I liked the fourth stanza; the predatory references made me grin. Also, the way it can go around and around and around in a circle is cool, too.
