I am a poet. But any subject is fair game here.
...And there will bea death, for no thought is so bloodlessthat it cannot die.I love the authority of these lines.You are getting good at meshing ideas and images. I must admit though that I didn't follow the poem's claim: thoughts have a body so they die, but words have no body so they don't die? It is strange for a poet to give the spoken word such insubstantial immortality. Maybe it would be better to show how the thought or virgin impression dies once it is transmutated into the frozen immutable body of words? There's a lot to sort out here.Larry
Yes, I think I need to do more work on this one. I'm glad you enjoyed some of it. That's a start.
