       Wrote this just after quitting marching band, though I only finished recently. Just tell me what is icky is what is good from a stylistic point of view.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    Beating, pulsing,
    Writhing, flowering,
    Gushing forth,
    In time with their feet.

    Hit, hit, hit,
    Ts, ts, ts.
    Hit, hit, hit,
    Ts, ts, ts.

    My feet longing,
    Restlessly twitching,
    Remembering when
    The cadence will start.

    The quad rolls,
    My eyes close.
    The bass drum and
    My heart pound.

    Bleeding, flowering,
    Pulsing, writhing,
    My wrists in water,
    Concoction of oils.

    Embalm me, dear oils!
    Do not let me waste!
    Still my poor heart,
    Catch these weak tears.

    A rose-scented bath
    Turning so red,
    Red as the ties
    ‘Bout the Guard’s necks.

      i must say the words fit so well together it made it so easy to read...especially the stanza

    "Beating, pulsing,
    Writhing, flowering,
    Gushing forth,
    In time with their feet"

    it just sort of rolls off your tongue...there is nothing there that gets in the way of the transition between the words. thats great.

    i dont quite get the oils thing. i have never been in band...i was always a chorus girl. so maybe it is just a band thing that i do not know about.

    i also am a little confused when you come to stanza seven, the last stanza, where does the bath come in to play. i mean why was there all of a sudden a random bath thrown in there with rose-scent?? ...am i missing something here?? please fill me in if i am...thanks!
    over all i think this was an easily read piece and a great write!

    thanks for sharing!
