    Journal: made of wire...
    -------------------------------------------
    Mood: The Usual
      
    ...a gladiator boy in baggy shorts;
    with odd popeye elbows
    but as yet without the tattoos.

    he is given gauntlets
    fit not only for fingerless knights
    and a gum shield,
    made of ‘Juicy Fruit’®
    and with a jackhammer heart
    beating in time to desire;
    with eyes of an anthracite hawk
    he skips in time with a blurring rope
    this boy:
    sixteen and harder than you.



    he does not do words
    longer than wheelbarrow;
    or numbers
    beyond the square of ten
    but,
    by speaking with his hands
    he articulates
    'the art of fear';
    inflicting one cauliflower ear
    this week;
    next week another.

    and last week his brother got the boots:
    two ruby slippers whose heels do not click
    but with lightning stripes
    (the means to dance
    quick,
    like northern soul
    but without the speed).

    all for the need to match fists with feet;
    to be complete:
    to be a fighting man
    whose head, though sometimes bowed
    has earned the right to be allowed…

    I know you take the road less traveled keith. We've got a whole new year knocking on the door, we'll get to it.

    Take it easy over there. :)

    ah. i understand how this could be a song. and i see how you were defining 'up' for the both of you! it would indeed be a good eco poem. ...or indeed a good eco song. j

    and thanks for turning the key in the lock for me. j

    Could this "Did you happen to see Diana
    at the dawning, her eyes were blazoned --

    her eyes were blazing, at the killing of the amazon,
    (and at the warming of oceans.)

    Orchid bloom and the afternoon is rolling by.
    Haunting shadow spilled across the narrows
    is drawing nigh, is drawing nigh --

    and can anybody, anybody see,
    that this ain't what it wanted to be?"

    be the start of a new piece? It really grabbed me and got me into the fighting spirit.
    it has a powerful message of its own, and i would be the first to join the march.......but i want to read about the adventures of the lads.

    i liked the last line "We walked, we broached a deep horizon..." and this fits with the lads even if rough tough northern lads would probably think it a bit poncey!

    I know I have a horrible given - taken ratio ^.^;; I'm not one for going out and searching through stories till I find something interesting.

    Umm... well thanks for the comment. It took me a second, but i think i read through it and got to the point :P

    ...Maybe.

    haha, no any feedback is welcome, and im sure i've left comments that make much less sense than yours did. Its all good.

    SO thanks, and heres the part where i leave and get back to my life.
