this is very interesting, dumplin. i've recently found some old writings that i've been "pruning." sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. i like the idea of the words as branches on a tree and pruning them for a better effect, as it were. nice unique write!
After pruning your word sculpture... I know you don't like to use punctuation, but there should be a comma between pruning and your.... to clarify. I couldn't understand the last line until I realized the punctuation was off. But other than that very good! That's why I like to handwrite things - you can still see what you erased. Computers it's like BLIP and it's gone. Love the word sulpture *imagines a topiary in the shape of the word 'WORD'* tee hee rating: great job, special: tee hee ~Cora Windova
I think it may be more aptly stated to say "They took imbalance from the words."....If it took balance than it would be crooked rather than being "no longer crooked." Do you see what I am trying to say? I am confusing myself....
It is true that what we do not say is also important....reading between the lines.
