  1. I’m in awe of your fearless use of form, at how the line breaks and spacing give this piece such a unique rhythm. To put it to the test, I took your poem and reconfigured it into “traditional” style and while still powerful, the same rhythm wasn’t quite there. You’re a poet who will challenge me. I like that in a person. 🙂

  2. poeticgrin – Thanks for the compliment…I like that you worked at coming to your conclusion…reconfiguring and all. Shows you have a love for poetry…

  3. Withstanding my fear of sounding redundant, I, too, applaud the visual aspects of your piece, especially in the light of your brilliant revelation regarding male violence and its training color, red. Innocence lost, or, at the very least, institutionally subjugated. Very insightful as well as innovative and visually impressive.

  4. Bob – It so pleases me to say – Thank You…and as for a compliment I must write, redundancy has a fond place in my heart…

  5. I love how you take control of the reader with yiur form and how you use the form appropriate to underscore your content!

  6. Thank You Zumpoems….I do appreciate the drop in and comment….
