I liked the reference to "Eye of the Tiger"....a fighter going for the one he wants...the "ring girl" (and that is a clever way to describe it!). Lots of references to fighters throughout....like the "Thrilla in Manilla!" Your words are intense and show a sense of purpose. In the rhyming sections, your shortened lines were so effective. This was an enjoyable read, Glen. I liked it. Lydi**

Take you time...and thanks for stopping by...no hurry...go at your own pace...
On Bounce... such a fierce, pulsing, driven force of words and heart that simply strike a fire in the soul.... Brilliant table set with extravagant words.

Quite a few poems here, Glen. I'll come back and take a look at another later, but for today I'll talk about the first one. You have a tremendous sense of rhythm. You repeat many phrases and this rather than loosing focus reals the reader in and I did, indeed, become pumped up.

there's a good rhyme and rhythm on the pieces. i particularly like "Ring Girl" because of the engaging beat...almost like a rap song. the good rhythm and beat just made me want to look for a rap song that would jibe with it and i actually tried to hum some lines in the tune of the rap song "rocketeer." =).

Ditto...I hear you...there...will check out for sure...
I admire any poet or poetess that can rhyme without feeling forced. You offer a refreshing edge to poetry, it is both modern and charming. I see too many artist on here that write as if they are stuck in a rut. Same syllable count...same rhythm count...honestly, what's the fun in that? I've never had the ability to blend one poem into another, but maybe it's because I can't stay focused on the same topic. My inspiration is all over the place, so I could never pull something like this off. Kudos to you for sharing your art, it is wonderful to read your talent.

You get the rhythm of this one from the start, reads like a rap song bouncing off the page, and I can dance to it....entertaining, I enjoyed the show.

I enjoyed this but don't know what to say about it lol....I'm hopeless when it comes to reviews. Being from the UK I realize at the end, after reading another comment that I have no clue about the subject matter and read it totally unaware of what it was actually about.

I realize it had a fighting theme to it and I took from it... a strength and never give up attitude...I particularly liked Other-Side of Empty, found it uplifting :) x
