    Lacerable

    Armor on.
    ..Sunrise on a sheet of rings
    ..Reach for me and read chain braille
    Bevored voice
    Gauntlet pockets
    ..I will clink at midday,
    ..Atlas of the pauldron
    And the world will hold itself.

    as is the case with much of your poetry, you demonstrate a great dynamic range of stark imagery that you seamlessly take it into the figurative (chained braille and bevored voice are delightful in both sound and symbol)

    i'm left with cold respect - but warm sadness - for the reluctant warrior.

    thanks for posting this.

    Thank you, sir. I fear it requires too much Googling to be all that effective, but some days are like that.

    I very much appreciate your comments.

    Thanks, DoubleS.

    I'm still playing around with the formatting. I don't usually like it complicated, but this one just feels like it needs some spacing.
