wow, wow, and more wow. I just love your mind! I don't know of another who could come up with such an artful piece. It's stunning. I love it. It conjures up Quentin Tarrantinos "Kill Bill" pictures...and the man who made the swords. It is an art, for sure, just as any smithing and poetry is!! Excellent piece.

Very clever. But more gimmick than substance. It's only superficially impressive.

Quite a unique format. Visual and well done.

Interesting at the very least! I always find it amazing how creative persons see words and symbols mesh.Takes talent, for sure!

The red bit at the end, or at the beginning as you type such a thing was the sticking point for me. Clever fellow.

So, you fight for us the unsuccessful poetry with your sword made of good intention, interesting, creative.

I see I reviewed this poem nine years ago! Wow. I wonder how many of the old guard still visit. I've added, deleted, regrouped and came back a few times.

very very nice concept. I couldn't have thought of something as nice as this poem. Thanks for your talent.

I love the format: at first I found it difficult to read, but it was worthy of reading through the end.

Great imagery and format; also poetically reflective, in a way that also suggests the pen (your write), is mightier than the sword ...
