    Thanks Alex. It's an outflow
    from the mindset Grant's
    "Aback of Empties"
    put me into

    You read me well Grant.

    back -- we never cut
    compelled full-throttle onward
    midst indulgenced glee

    'til -- consumered glut
    razed clear, as conscience laundered,
    brings us to a knee


    Concur with all above. Really enjoyed this piece!

    Black sails ... hmm, legend of Theseus? Quite prophetic, this one. I like the rhyme scheme, the use of near-rhyme within it, and the assonance. Very skilfully wrought, Johntee.

    Awesome, a delight to read this share from you.
    It's quite inspiring, and all of it works together well to produce ...
    Some change in me beyond words!

    Conspicuous Consumption

    Conspicuous Consumption


    We may not look upon the sun unblinded

    nor doubt the tales told by power

    but fall in line with the thread unwinding

    to face the beast that awaits the hour.

    In wending walls the senses binding,

    from stygian gloom confounding fear,

    black sails will carry a message homeward

    of the failure to kill the desire to devour.
Working...
