your use of imagery to convey such different but parallel themes is amazing... again, the use of off-beat punctuation works perfectly for this style... i love it! :worship:

poetry about poetry is a hard thing to write well, and a rare thing to completely astound. I also love language with all of its inaccuracies & interpretative idiosyncrasies, and I am astounded! I love the visual usage, another hard concept to pull off without seeming self consciously clever, works here because of its connection to the metaphor right down to the "o". vividly apt, your vision of the muse keeps me rapt, around your poetic finger.Heart

whew. kinda hot in here, isn't it? ;) (Wink)

i know exactly where you're coming from. robert heinlein, one of my favorite novelists, described writing quite often as the most masturbatory of professions -- you're alone, trying to affect yourself, and god help anyone who knocks on the door!
