interesting to say that emotion resides in the blood and that we are unaffected by the situation which causes the emotion until we taste it, making it real and have a form. i've always felt that emotions, particularly the not so nice ones, grew up and out into my brain from my bones, coming from deep reaches, too far for me to call it up unnecessarily or idylly. or at least, it's usually too far for me. very thought provoking piece.
interesting little ditty... transferring that anger to yourself, i can see how that would happen when you bite your lip... OW! luckily, i don't have that problem, but i've bit my tongue on accident a few times, and that really pisses me off! cute, but painful, write!
hm- no reason to be mad at yourself. Just turn your anger outward, indiscriminantly at the world - i mean other people tend to hate it, but screw them, you can be mad at them too. Now whats with this new picture? Are you flirting again? tsk tsk, just brings about more people to be mad at later shard
This reads like something one might find in the Tao de Ching or something. A bit of wisdom for how we always end up hurting ourselves when we allow ourselves to get angry enough for biting.
It's great...I like the simple lines...feels asian in essence...no wasted words...yet lovely and powerful...I need to remember this one today...with the election and all...MAD about that thing...! I spent three hours voting for that? I swear there was foul play in Ohio...Hmmm...I want my day back.
Short, sweet, and to the point. I can definitely relate to the biting your tongue or lip thing. I think I should do it more often. I get kind of crabby when I'm driving, and even though I know the other drivers can't hear me, I say all sorts of things I probably shouldn't. Your syllable usage was excellent. I didn't find it hard to read or "choppy" at all. I find that many short poems come out as "choppy" and hard to read because of the lack of good syllable usage.
