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.

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 ...

Made my eyes blurry for a minute there, but this is great concrete poetry! The last few words were a bit "jabby" but I guess that may have been your intention. :)

Clever and pointed. (Pun etc).

I had a hard time figuring this out! but, actually, in the end it did seem to make sense! Good format. Enjoyed it, (I think!)
