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
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
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…

Take it easy over there. :)

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.
